Great, but...

This really is a great lens for its evenness of performance and general optical (and mechanical) properties.
Unfortunately it does have one potentially very obvious optical weakness when used on full-frame, and that is...linear distortion. Perhaps I've been spoiled by years of shooting on crop formats, but wow...I was surprised just how obvious it was in the horizons of my seascapes, particularly at 70mm.
