    Cons: -vignetting at 2.8 -a little bit distortion

    Pros: +very high contrast +supersharp from corner to corner +smooth focusring +built like a tank

    Summary: There are many good landscape-lenses out there. But the Distagon 21 beats them all. Color and contrast are the best you can get. ...and you can push the colors in post without making them look unnatural. This lens is really amazing.

    Cons: Wavy distortion. Impossible to correct. It shouldn't be your 1st choice for demading or exacting architecture shots

    Pros: Near perfect!

    Summary: As good or better than the Nikkor 14-24. Smaller and more compact
