Excerpt: Have only had a few chances to use this new lens thus far but am completely satisfied and happy thus far. Attached to my Sony A57 camera I have captured some great photos of landscape and cityscape scenes. Looking forward to more outings soon.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Summary: Very happy with this lens, It provided the wide angle shots that I wanted without the cornering fish eye look. The motor is pretty quiet comparing to Tameron and is on par with Canon wide angle lens. Focus ring is pretty smooth, it is a decent weighted lens I must say, feels very solid.
I LIKE IT. WORKS EXCELLENT ON MY CANON T4i CAMERA.

Summary: IT IS NOT A PROFESSIONAL REVIEW. IF YOU NEED ONE, THERE ARE MANY OF THEM IN OTHER SITES. I really like the lens. Fits excellent with my Canon T4i Camera Since this lens doesn't have an "IS" feature, maybe you have to consider a tripod or to take a strong position during your shooting.
