Great lens at an unbeatable price!

Summary: I am really impressed with this lens! I had read reviews that were positive, but I still take them with a grain of salt! Feels a little cheap in the hand, but delivers excellent performance. Maybe not quite L glass performance, but then again, it only cost a 10th the price! If you want to have a wide angle lens, but don't want to feel guilty when it's not on the camera, this is a great lens for your bag!
Summary: This lens was manufactured by Cosina, the maker of Voigtlander lenses. It is a very decent lens for the prices sold and works with either APS or full frame camera's. It requires a little stopping down to get really sharp but at the prices sold is an excellent option for anyone who can not afford premium Nikon or Canon lenses.
Summary: If your present lens doesn't offer a wide angle option, then this lens can be an ideal alternative to far more expensive lenses. Photo quality is fine for computer viewing and 8x10-aize prints, providing your camera and techniques are up to par.
Excerpt: I bought this lens for landscapes, kid shots and family group photos. Since I was able to buy it for less then $100 I was a bit sceptical to say the least. However, I have found that is actually quite a good value. I have used it to take some family photos and to do some landscape photography.
