I just received my copy 2 days ago. I too was put off by the negative reviews. I have to say I love to shoot with this lens, 24mm (the 35mm equivalent) is a nice lens for me.

I did some testing today and IMHO, shoot Aperture preferred, and leave the F stop at F8 and you will be happy with the lens. I shot comparisons of the lens to my kit zoom at 18mm (another lens that people love to hate) and the results were almost indistinguishable across the frame.

Here is the raw output taken today, no sharpening in post. I thought the results are pretty good regardless of the price of the lens. What do you think?

Very interesting shot, really like it.
