While this lens is a bit pricey, you can expect it to deliver solid performance accross the board.  I use it mainly for landscapes and low-light photos, as well as astrophotography.  Don't be afraid to stop down with this lens, as it delivers respectable image quality even wide-open.  Highly recommended for an FX DSLR user who wants a versatile and fast wide-angle.

I have a 20mm "goto" lens, I use most of the time. But I certainly do love this lens. Rented one for 4th of July and fell madly in love with it. But the price is a bit much. However Nikon makes a cheaper one that looks very enticing. Gotta get one!
