Thom's Mini Review: Good news: stopped down there are no complaints. None. Bad news: wide open it struggles a bit, as do all f/1.4 lenses. Vignetting is strong wide open (2 stops in corners), and the center of that vignetting is slightly south of image center. Needs two stops to get in control. Overall: if you need it, you need it (and you'll probably like it). It's a large heavy lens, though. Recommended
