    it's my "fun" lens, or "gotta have a lotta shit in one frame" lens

    Seems to be softer than my trusty Tamron 28-75 2.8, 50mm prime, or 70-200 2.8

    exactly...those who say it isn't the sharpest don't realize that a wide angle isn't going to be as sharp as a prime or a telephoto due to curvature of the glass...this goes for almost all WA lenses.

    It is probably the most used lens I own.

    Bought it from my friend cause he was upgrading to FF: got it for 250, BARELY used since he shot mostly film :bigthumb:

    Really fun lens, def gives a different look. I was gonna sell it when I upgraded to FF but instead gave it to my brother since he has a D80.
