Dustin skewered the 20mm lens for distortion but otherwise gave it high marks.

Oh wait, I got all mixed up, I was talking about the Sony but the thread is obviously about the Tamron, my bad. I don't own the latter, but yeah... Normally I don't think the focal length fudging everyone does is very significant but when comparing a prime that's slightly over X and one that's slightly under X (specially for UWAs), then I guess the difference might stand out more.

The Tamron f2.8 primes just look needlessly bulky to me, for f2.8s w/o the best AF...
