Most helpful reviews

Roger, Kowestoft

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I use a full frame DSLR, and wanted a really wide angle lens for landscape pictures - ones with objects close to the lens, and sweeping vistas beyond - both of which in sharp focus.
This lens does that in spades. Excellent image quality, quiet motor, seemiingly solid build.
Bad points:
I think the way the lens cap is attached to the lens, via a sleeved mount is odd to say the least. If you remove the lens cap from the sleeve, you get a circular image, as the lens is so wide it picks up the mount; and if you remove the cap and sleeve as one, it's quite bulky. Seems a bit Heath Robinson

Good points:
Excellent optical quality. Sharp, sharp images at full aperture. 'Sweet spot' around 5.6 to f8.
Bad points:
A little heavy but not an issue really hanging on the end of a Nikon D3.

Dave, Grantham

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A fabulous wide angle lens that does not need to extend out.
Bad points:
Due to the style of hood fitted you cannot place a filter on the front of the lens for protection purposes.

Colin, Nottingham

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Especially suited to full frame bodies, this lens puts the "ULTRA" into ultra wide angle lenses. It is also virtually free of rectilinear distortion.
Bad points:
Due to it's design (ultra wide capabilities) it has a bulbous front element which negates the use of any protective filters - (but I can live with that.)
