Love the way it feels, super small and super solid. Every other lens in my kit is Zeiss and this matches the quality and feel. Super close focusing.
Not razor sharp wide open. But very nice 5.6, 8, etc.
Perfect for street, event, architecture.
Comparatively: Zeiss 18 or 21 (the only lens everyone raves about and is the Holy Grail of lenses in this category) but are 3-4 times the price. Canon/Sigma are autofocus, a bit cheaper but much larger and quality certainly not as solid.
If you have a full frame sensor and sharp corners are important to you, be prepared to stop down and still be a little disappointed (if that's you, you should look into the Voigtlander 28mm for Canon). I use it on a 5DII, and lack of corner sharpness + vignetting doesn't bother me - its awesome size makes up for those faults. It's certainly not distracting, it's just not up to Canon's or Zeiss' ultra wide angle standards. On a crop sensor most users should be plenty happy with it.
In daylight, operation of this lens can be extremely fast. When shooting at f/8, focus can be set to infinity and you'll get basically everything from around 7 feet and further in focus. No AF to wait for on shutter release makes it really snappy. This makes it great for street shooting.
AF is the thing I miss the most, and this is my first MF lens. But I am getting the hang of it, and honestly it's pretty easy to do at this focal length - only indoors at f/3.5 do I need to watch the focus, or if I'm doing up-close work outside.
This is a niche lens, for sure, but I love it!
