So far I have mixed feelings about this lens. It does not have the metal feel of the other limiteds and just doesn't seem as special.

It's not made out of aluminum like the other Limiteds?

Interesting. It's not a DA 21 or FA 43 killer that's for sure. Feeling better now Boy that FA 31 looks nice though.
Exactly what I was thinking… but it costs so darn much.

What makes it less-robust feeling as compared to other Limiteds?

I think it is the weight. Seems as large as the FA31 (if not larger), but much lighter.

How is the 20-40 in the corners? I am particularly interested in 21 vs. 20-40 at f/8 in the corners.
It looks 20mm is not the sweet end of 20-40.
It does very well in the middle indeed. at 30mm, the 20-40 is very nice.
Thanks for testing!

Thanks for the photos! Looks like 21mm has more CA. Bottom right is also much better on the 20mm.
