Most of the complaints i've seen are about the distortion and vignetting at the wide end, but its worth noting that it only becomes a 16mm focal length after lens correction. When it first came out people did tests that showed that it was actually a 14.5mm(ish) in RAW. If you judge it on its RAW performance then you need to take that into account.
