Excerpt: I contemplated sending this lens back, as it really did not live up to my expectations. This lens is unsharp at the low end (10mm) and not just by a little.<br />I was actually hoping for a bit more distortion (that "extreme wide angle" look), but no luck.<br /><br />It's great for wide groups, or artistic angles as long as you steer-clear of the 10mm end.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus, Very unsharp at 10mm
Summary: The lens arrived very quickly - thanks Amazon. Overall I was disappointed with this lens. There was severe chromatic aberration everywhere but the very centre of the image and the overall sharpness was lacking. Thanks to Amazon I had a quick refund. I will now go back to my original plan and go with the Canon 10-22. It's a lot more expensive, but I suppose you get what you pay for.
