    Border sharpness

    I have tested this lens with my Nikon D800E. The center sharpness is good for practical use. The border and corners are not as goods as expected. There is also some CA and vignetting wide open, but this is relatively easy to correct from Lightroom.
    There is almost no distorsion.
    The focus is fast and accurate, but not as silent as the Nikkors. To switch from AF and MF is easy to operate by push/pull the focus ring. I found this more user friendly than the traditional switch at the side of the lens barrel.
