One of the sharpest ultrawide lens ever made. Constant f/2.8 aperture. Even better than the fixed focal length Nikkor 14 mm f/2.8. Barrel distortion and some vignetting at the wide end. Not immune to flare.

The mechanical construction is solid. This is a professional grade lens, with rubber seals to protect it against dust and moisture.
