HD 20-40 limited owners, I need your advice....
Aug 1, 2014

I'm on the fence about pulling the trigger on the HD 20-40 and need some opinions. I've searched the threads on here and still have a few questions:

- Is the IQ to the level of other Limited lenses? I have the 31 f1.8 and it's the best performer I have. I don't think it'll touch the 31, but is it worthy of the limited badging for IQ and not just build?

- How is the barrel distortion at 20mm?

- Does it feel compact? I almost bought the 18-35 but it's too huge. I sold my 16-50 because.... it's too huge. I need a nice WR walkaround lens that is compact.

- Buyers remorse? Or were you happy with the lens out of the box?

Any other info you care to share would be appreciated!
