Excerpt: I haven't been able to use it much, but so far this lens takes very sharp photos. I don't find the 18-35 mm range too limiting. I've noticed slightly more vignetting than has been reported in reviews. I just wish it weren't so heavy or I'd consider this as my go-to lens.
Summary: I bought this lens to use in my Nikon d5300 which was my backup camera for a trip to Thailand. It worked BEAUTIFULLY. Awesome wide angles, with crisp images and great color saturation. Now why 4 stars instead of 5: you'll NEED to work very hard to make this lens work as intended.
Excerpt: Basically, film used to be 60 cycles/mm (also called line pairs/mm). Full frame sensors up to 24M pixels are less than 80 cycles/mm. However, current 20-24Mp APS-C cameras are 110-130 cycles/mm. Most lenses, and nearly all APS-C specific lenses are clueless.
Pros: Excellent Image Quality, Good color rendition
Cons: Limited zoom range, No Optical Stabilization
Excerpt: I was having my first child and I knew I would be taking a lot of indoor pictures. I've been using my Sigma 35mm f/1.4 for any low light condition shooting. But I've always wanted that wider field of view so it'll be easier to use indoor.
Excerpt: This lens is an excellent tool and fills a nice niche for low light work on a crop sensor. But on my 7D Mark ii I like to use off center focus points and had too much troble achieving reliable focus off center. So I will be returning it.
Excerpt: I picked this lens up, Im using it with the GH4 and the canon Metabones xl adapter. The results from camera, mount and lens have been better than expected. Only complaint is that I Cant use nd filters that screw on because the lens hood is not friendly at all it should be wider to allow for other...
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
