    How good is the 28mm D on a IQ140?

    I have heard good things and bad things about this lens.
    But the bad things have been "soft in the corners".
    So with my cropped IQ140 it is a terrific lens??

    I never noticed soft corners with the P40+ and in fact the lens generally felt wider FoV than it's official 21/22mm 'equivalent' focal length FoV might suggest. I'm sure one of the technical folks can explain that one ...

    They can vary. But you can use C1ís Sharpness falloff to compensate somewhat for corner softness.

    I'd imagine the 28mm f/4.5 D is a fantastic lens on a crop sensor. On a P65+ or Leaf Aptus-II 12, it leaves a lot to be desired, lacking immensely in corner sharpness.

    Think of it as a 31mm lens on FF.
