    loving the SP 15-30MM F/2.8 Di VC USD...

    picked up this lens today and so far the images look very promising

    today was very rainy so testing was limited - anyone interesting in me putting up some examples this week ?

    lensrentals tested it and it topped the Nikon 14-24 at the sweet spot of 23mm of about 800 less

    I'm very interested in this lens, and would be particularly interested in how the corners look around 15-18mm, wide open and stopped down to f/5.6 or f/8.

    Thanks. What aperture was that? Is there a full resolution version available?

    I returned it and got all my money back - way too heavy.

    the other thing is I like to focus manually for landscapes

    oh well - the Zeiss 21 is still king
