Thanks Jeff. Me too.
I was shooting a variety of shots wide and close seeing how the lens handles them.
Because I have to get closer to the subject to fill the frame with a 28mm it gives a more intimate feel. Lens looks sharp on the edges on the wide shots too. I think it will do fine for landscapes as I was hoping. I will explore it further.
I'll have a 2 lens kit now with this 28 and my 180. It's a big spread. Maybe I'll add the 50mm f1.4G for it's compactness and to fill the gap. I'm in no rush.
I really love this 28mm lens. I think I did right purchasing it. We were going to go to the Smokey Mtns this weekend and try it out there, but the weather is no so good. I'll see what I can find around here.
Here's a snap shot from the other day when I received the lens. A little curvature but easily manageable.
