Hi sye46
so for your Signa 19mm corner is not sharp at F2.8 and F4?
and need to stop down to F5.6 for corner shaprness?

I am mostly using the kit lens now at 18mm F5.6. Corner sharpness is OK but sometimes ISO got push to above 400 even in cloudy daytime

I really wish to find a lens that I can use at F2.8 and so lower ISO but the $1100 Zeiss is really too expensive

I just got a brand new copy, I like the lens, but even at F8 there is still a little corner softness. Compared to the Sigma 19mm which I also have is sharp corner to corner at F5.6. I still like the 16mm better because of the size and the 2 adapters
