Gold ring! Is a f/4 lens… But not an issue since it has VR and is a primary landscape lens. More plastic than metal, but very well built. Definitely has the quality of a gold ring lens.


Front element sinks – Be sure to use a filter to protect the front element. This lens feels strangely light with so many elements. But still very well built. Still in one piece after years of usage – This lens has build quality and good weather sealing.

Auto-focus is fast, accurate and smooth. No trouble with it for years. Is 99% spot on accurate. The only few times it struggled is in low light, which some AF assist lights did the magic.

Seems to hit the sweet spot around f/8 to f/11. Even at wide open, this lens is still sharp. Even at f/22, this lens is still spitting out quality! A beast that just works. Distortion at 16mm but goes away at 35mm.

THE GOOD • Solid build and weather sealed… at least it is weather resistant. • Smooth mechanics, autofocus and zoom. • Sharp. Very sharp and amazing optical quality. • VR is useful in low light conditions, and when you cannot deploy the tripod.


The distortion at 16mm is annoying, but it can be fixed in Photoshop.

Slightly soft corners at wide open.

Personally, I don’t like the moving front element.

That’s it. Nothing much to complain about.

This lens is one monster that produces sharp images, and is it worthy to be throned the king of landscape lenses? http://xlightphotography.c...
