Re: list of the other reviews - all of them tell more or less the same:

(1) These forums are losing value. They're filled with envious onlookers who resent working professionals. The 58 is a tool. If you need a tool for your job, you get it, you use it. If it's unsatisfactory, you dispose of it, and get something that does the job. It's really as simple as that.

(2) A small group of professional people (pro or not) who use the 58 as a tool in their kit have formed communities on the web. Communities where envy and bias do not play a role. In these communities you can share your own results. Those are the results that matter. I trust the experiences of men and women who use this lens in the field, not in labs:




Part (2), fair comment, rendition vs lab, bearing in mind sample variation and that the issues of 'corner' sharpness in a lab test may be exactly contrary to the 'rendition' characteristic, so not applicable.

Part (1)...strange rant, the gist being, if you criticize a lens or disagree on something, you 'resent working professionals'... Thus, 'the forums are losing value'????

And yes, of course the lens is a tool, as any other.
