    Cons: Coma and astigmatism at the borders up to f/5.6. LCA to be corrected, visibile at about one frame height on slide projection. Use a color filter in true B/W shots. Use slim and larger diameter (62 mm +) filters in packs. Focus shift to be manually checked some times between f/4 and f/5.6.

    Pros: Well-balanced optical performance on digital and hybrid (CA control) Low distortion for a retrofocus. Compact. Easy with filters. High resolution and good uniformity from f/5.6 and f/11, where a 24 mm is typically used. Mechanically strong against shocks. Good tones and excellent color rendition. Strong even at short distances and fine patterns. After f/5.6 slightly better than 24/1.4 AFS.

    Summary: Much better on average than pro zooms. It is a match in normal use against Zeiss ZF 25/28, visible differences in the Leica M world. Good lens in action.

    Cons: CA, but can be eliminated in PP.

    Pros: Lightweight, fast aperture, decent AF.

    Summary: On DX cameras - you get 36mm focal length. For me the only lens for street and documentary shootings. Really worth that money.

    Cons: Not much, use it with it's hood.

    Pros: Light weight ,sharper than 14-24 at 24mm ,sharper than 16--35 VR at 24mm ,sharper than 24-70 at 24mm (the lenses I own) have not tested it with 17-35 No zoom can beat a prime even if it's a mediocre class one.

    Summary: Want less weight ,a sharp walkabout lens for just about any thing ? This the glass to get ,the 20mm and 28mm 2.8 D are inferior to it's sharpness. Works very nice on DX too!

    Pros: Price vs optical quality

    Summary: Buy one second hand if you are an amateur and don't have a similar lens yet. Try it out on your body in the shop before you buy.

    Cons: Not designed for digital, no MF/override, corners slightly less sharp

    Summary: If weight and aperture count, it's a top choice with good overall sharpness.
