Specifications:
Highly portable lens with high optical performance and light weight of
12 oz. (340 g). A very practical ultra-wide-angle zoom. The large front lens group minimizes peripheral darkening, and the flare-blocking diaphragm minimizes flare. Also, with lens group 2 being the zoom group, distortion is corrected.

Pros: Light weight, low cost, good sharpness
Cons:
Barrel Distortion

The lens is sharp enough to make high quality 13"x19's from scanned negatives. My big complaint is the barrel distortion. This is especially noticeable in vertical seascape shots where the horizon is about 1/3 the way down the frame. The distortion is so bad, the horizon is curved, making the shots unusable. Horizontal shots without straight lines, (such as landscapes, etc), are fine for this lens. An example of a picture made with this lens can be seen on my web site: www.modernpictorials.com. Go to the "LBI Color" page, and see image #S132A. I just ordered the 17~40 f4.0 L lens, and hope the barrel distortion is less.
