Even with Helen's generous offer (which I really appreciate), I decided to buy it locally rather than risk grey importing as it is such a risky lens. Arrived today, here's the brick test. What do you guys think? //corrected using lightroom's profile correction.

Sun was on the right.
Keeper or returner?

Also the lens isn't as big as those reviews made it out to be. I think its a keeper but I haven't pixel peeped enough in the past to know for sure and would rather trust the opinions of people here. Better to get it right now while I can still return it and get a replacement

Never mind, I did some hyperfocal shots at 16mm and it was sharrrrrp, sharper than my old DA15!
She's a keeper
