Good points:
without anything to compare it to - its hard a review this lens
Heard nothing but god things about this lens especially at this price - half the price of the nikon 12-24 version.
the 11 - 16 tokina is better if you can afford the extra 100 - for the 2.8
there are lens ( sigma & tamron ) that go to 10mm but from what ive read - seem to suffer distortion - what the point then of having the extra wideness if its rubbish !
Built like tank
Bad points:
heavy lens( its its built very well ) might bother some - but i like having some thing that feels quality in my hands - weight isnt an issue -
