I suppose I just had bad luck, and due to the fact that I just bought it when it arrived at the market, the lense probably had a deffect.reviewed September 11th, 2009 (purchased for $713)
Despite this, I really recommend this lense. I really love the sharpness and the colours. It is suitable at almost all situations. I love it in portraits.
I've really notice the diference between 18mm to 16mm.

Despite the fact that I have to focus manually because my camara's body hasn't got motor to focus, I think if I had the option I wouldn´t use it because in macro you have to focus manually.reviewed September 11th, 2009 (purchased for $561)
The quality of the images are amazing. I love the blur at the background, It´s lovely. It's very sharp and has nice colours...
The macro pictures that are in my blog are taken with this optical.
