My Impressions

Pick up this lens second hand for well under half its recommended price and it has proved to be a great bargin! The images are sharp and it the focus is pretty quick, but the main benfit it the aperture and weight – great for on the move low light stooting.

The wide angle lense and light weight makes it great for landscapes, and the wide aperture lends itself to night time cityscapes as well.
