    Cons: weak corners @ f2.8 and f4; clickless aperture, \'only\' f2.8; filters only via adapter

    Pros: at least f2.8; very little distortion; resistance to flare; ca\'s present but easily correctable (in DxO); can handle difficult light situation; well build (metal); close focus (0.2m)

    Summary: Got this lens as carry around on my trips in the countryside. It has very very little distortion and delivers very pleasurable pictures. Usefull wide angle and very good in handling difficult light situations; for landscapes f5.6 does the job for me. Flare is well controlled, except for one light patch sometimes when the fish bowl on the front catches the sun. One needs to work the pictures in post a bit more compared to my Olympus lens to get the full potential realized. Still, despite some flaws, 5 stars: it delivers more than its prices suggests and ... it is basically free of distortion (shame to the big brands that rely on correction in software).

    Cons: O some flare and not so sharp in the corners wide open

    Pros: ++ very fine metal/glass-construction with 10/8 elements ++ center sharpness is very good ++ very nice color rendition O/+ for sharp edges you must stop down to f 8-11 +/++ very few CA\'s (samyang 2/12 has visble CA\'s in the corners)

    Summary: highly recommended for street and landscape shootings with sharp results
