I knew this lens would be great for taking photos of rooms, landscapes and close ups of the noses of family members. However, one finds it works in lots of situations. It is no way a walk around lens, but it is a prime I will want with me and will use often.
The fact the lens is slow (only f4) is not a tremendous problem since at a focal length of 15mm, you can take shots at 1/30 or even 1/15 th of second and get away with it. I found the lens noticeably not as sharp wide open as when it is stopped down a little (in which case it is quite sharp).

A beautiful lens. Overpriced though. You will be wanting a practical lens cap instead of the screw-on version that comes with it... you just have to find one that is small enough not to interfere with the built-in hood. If it's designed with a flange to go around the rim of the lens, it won't fit this one.

Got mine a few months back when one of those 'big time' NY camera stores ran a sale.
So far great! Good for landscapes, interiors and all that. Build quality seems to be excellent... but as others have mentioned, the lens cap needs more thought. Also included was a nice little storage pouch.
