I bought this lens hoping that it would be the light walk around lens for FX I have been waiting for and lo and behold...IT IS!

Sharp, sharp, sharp...by the way this lens is also sharp. Aperture setting to aperture setting its every bit as sharp as my Nikon 24-70 2.8.

Seriously.

Great color, light, the zoom ring is a bit stiff and focus could be faster--but beggars cannot be choosers. And yes there is some very fuggly distortion especially on the wide end, but this is easily handled in PS or LR.

This lens is definitely a winner though. If you've been looking for a good travel, street photography, every day lens this may be the one for you.

I absolutely LOVE mine.
