    it's the straightest super wide lens u can get for full-frame.
    nice colors too.
    dunno about others but i like it very much. most of my pics are taken with it.
    sigh.

    I use it primarily as a 12mm "prime" on both film and 1.3x FOV. Do note that it doesn't do very well wide open. Stop down to about f8 and it performs amazingly well.

    As you noted, QC a bit suspect. I got a 1-1 exchange on my first copy which showed a fair bit of CA and softness even stopped down.

    i've used this lens before. for more sharpness, needs to stop down to F9 onwards for better sharpness..
