Excerpt: First of all, this lens is great. Its sharp in most of the frame stopped down. It feels strong and durable. Low distortion and not too bad vignetting. However, my first little problem is this lens front hood thread blocks the Lee wide angle adapter from attaching to the front of lens. I might be too demanding of this product, but my biggest problem with this lens is in the cold the focus goes beyond infinity and wont let me bring it back until it warms up.
Summary: I purchased this as there were mostly 5 star ratings and I was looking for a UWA lens for my D700. Since I had the fantastic Tokina 11-16 (original non-motor) for my D90, I thought this lens would be an excellent buy too. I was wrong. I got a few usable pictures from it but the CA was horrible and the corners, and not extreme corners, were mushy. they were horrible at F4, and stopped down to 5.6 or F8 was an improvement but still had some "mushiness" and blur.
