Conclusion: A wide angle zoom, f2.8 lens that gives out of focus and under-exposed results on wide cannot be called an f2.8 wide lens, can it? Again and again and again and again, it will never focus on wide, that's it. The underexposure issue is so annoying too. No need for a glimpse of bright sky to be in the shot, it just under exposes by 1 f-stop. Very dissapointing product. I also use the Nikon 17-70 which costs a fraction of the price and it works properly.
Pros: Built quality, that's it.
Cons: Never focuses on wide no matter what. Always underexposes on wide also. Dissapointing product.
Conclusion: Can't judge this lens yet, but I guess you people must take care if you buy a one, and check it as much as you can. I'll be back with news.
Cons: Mine is very bad and very soft. My 18-70mmm f:3.5 - 5.6 works much better. Tomorrow it will be back to the seller for chaech and change (cause I'm sure mine is bad but others are good). Will keep informed.
