Thom's Mini Review: Good news: the center is stunning even wide open, corners are decent stopped down, plus the lens is fairly free of chromatic aberration except at the extremes. Bad news: no filters without big and expensive third party accessories, big honking piece of glass is brutally exposed to whatever's poking at you, linear distortion you'll want to deal with at 14mm, medium high (1.5 stop) vignetting wide open that improves only slightly at 14mm, but quite good stopped down at 24mm. Overall: I'm rarely disappointed with this lens and often pleasantly surprised, despite my already high expectations. The lack of filters seems to put a lot of people off, but it hasn't stopped me from loving this lens. Highly Recommended
