A decent lens......if used properly!
on 29 June 2013
I'd mulled over which super-wide to purchase for my 7D for quite some time. I eventually settled on this one after balancing out various pros and cons. I was looking for something affordable and sharp.
This lens hasn't disappointed on those two fronts, with my only complaint being the serious image softness at the corners. But this is a seriously wide lens, the corners will always suffer as things stretch away at the extremes.
Focus seems quick enough, considering it'll only ever be used for slow or stationary subjects. It's a little noisy, but really nothing to worry about.
A good, solid performer....and a worthy addition to the kit bag of someone who only occasionally comes down to super-wide territory from his usual 400-560mm.
