  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

4 or 5 stars, hard to choose, but ...

  • Summary: 4 or 5 stars, hard to choose, but I'll give it a 5. Can't really fault it especially at the price. It is tack sharp... at f8 where I think most people will use it anyways. Haven't used it much at wider apertures.

Ultra Wide Angle

  • Excerpt: Useful for astrophotography...wide angle lenses give you more time to keep the shutter open before star trails appear. Although manual focus, you can't autofocus on a star anyway.
