Lucky you. I love mine. Not that sharp at the edges at F/4, fine across the frame from 5.6 or 8. CA is simply removed by any RAW processor and that helps sharpen the edges anyway.

Use the advantages it has over wide zooms: the hood exactly covers the necessary shading angle, and anyway if the sun is in the frame it flares far less than a zoom. 49mm filters suits all my other lenses (F28, FA50, DFA100, DA50-200).

Compact so doesn't cause shadows on the built-in flash when you want to illuminate a subject centre-frame. Light, discreet, no-one expects it to be that wide so you can get people into the edges of shots without them posing.

No distortion to speak of, so go shoot some boring test targets!
