wow, that is really, really impressive for an 'inexpensive' lens. its got me thinking, looks just as sharp as my tokina 16-28, weighs 600 g less and takes 77 mm threads (so my existing nd grad setup might work). i dont really care about the variable aperture, as i pretty much would only ever use this lens at f8-16 anyway. I could pick up a samyang 14mm is i wanted to get freaky wide and both lenses together would not weigh as much as the tokina......Does anybody know if this lens has the weather sealing gasket? im also curious about the flare control (is not nano coated).

It has a gasket on the rear, no strange problems found with ghosting yet! Even the 24-70 N shows more ghosting from my experience yet...
