Strengths:    Amazing wide angle lens for a lot of fun shots. As a mountain biker, I love how you can get right into the action and come up with some really fun pictures. Makes small curves bigger and turns flat ground upright.

Simple operation and the AE model I have works for metering.

Manual focus is of minimal adjustment, but at a medium opening of 5.6 it comes out sharp enough across the whole image.

Weaknesses:    Focus can be a bit hit and miss, but most of the time the ring distance chart points are pretty accurate.

Bottom Line:   
A fun lens for some really different style shots.
