9 out of 10 points and recommendedResolution for the price... amazingField Curvature for landscape shots
Very sharp, even wide open.... this could replace a prime if needed. Great for portraits at 50mm x 1.6, etc.reviewed January 12th, 2007 (purchased for $429)
The Field Curvature problem when attempting to focus on a 'flat' landscape shot.... you might notice blurring at the edges.... your only recourse is to stop down unless you have already!
But other than that.... best resolution in a zoom I've seen under $500
