I got this lens with a rubber lens hood that I after testing this realised that its cause vignetting at next to all apertures.

Great sharpness and it's only fairly far out you have some minor corner softness.

Build quality


Great build quality but the aperture ring feel a bit plastic when you turn it.


Conclusion

This is allot better then I first thought and for some reason you don't think a Sigma lens could be really good.
But this a really great at all levels and the only thing a don't like is the plastic aperture ring that feels cheap.

Compared this to the Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 and the Nikon got a run for its money.

Thumbs up:
Great image quality at all aperture
Great built quality
Focus down to 0.22m (0.75ft)

Thumbs down:
Plastic aperture ring
