I just sent mine back yesterday. I wanted to like it but it had horrible sharpness at f2.8 in the corners, it did get better at f8 and up. Maybe I received a bad copy? Now to find another inexpensive wide angle Nikon mount!

Bought the Nikon version on Ebay for $275 used. It was in pristine, like new condition. The copy I have had some trouble auto focusing at infinity but I was able to make the adjustment that is found on YouTube. Wow, tack sharp and gives a whole new photo perspective. I believe this is a must-have wide angle lens for budget minded shooters.
The only thing I don't care for (but is not deal breaker) is the clunky workings (push and pull) of the AF/MF clutch ring. Get it, you won't be disappointed,

I've had this lens for almost 3 years. I didn't like it at first but now it is my go to landscape/scenic lens. There is a little lens distortion due to the aspherical aspect but that is easily fixed in post editing. I always shoot on a tripod with this lens. It's a little on the heavy side. Like all lenses, it has a sweet spot. Once you find it you'll really like this lens. But, you have to manual focus this lens. Autofocus is hit an miss, especially around the edges. I get tack sharp images when I focus manually. Focus via the view finder. Then bring up the frame in live view. Zoom into the focal point as far as you can go and fine tune the focus.
