Fun, Fun, Fun


A extremely fun lens to use. Provides a unique perspective that allows you to capture the feel of large spaces, objects and architecture. Flare control is outstanding even when pointed directly into the sun. Versitile as it can be used on all formats....

Incredible lens


This lens is Amazing. I had doubts before to buy this lens. Now i'm really very happy with it and surprised about what can I get. i took pictures of wild gooses flying over the Potomac river and the results were incredible. It worth the price.

This is the most used and fun to shoot with lens that I own. There were a lot of delays to get this on the market but it was worth the wait. I find all the images are sharp and the focus speed and build quality are fantastic. The only reason I gave the...
