Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great shots for what I wanted the lens for a wide angle of the inside and outside of buildings
Bad points:
The lens itself is great but I ordered it online on 10 June 2012 and it wasnt shiopped until 02 July. The lens if great but the shipping was far too slow. I ended up purchasing from a different retailer before it arrived.
