The key to this lens is f/8 and be there.

Nice picture PhotoClimber!

Here is one from the last summer. I have noticed that my lens works best at 35mm.

Well done. I really am beginning to think this lens has been grossly underrated, overall. Sure, its not as sharp as a prime, but crikey, its a damn good lens anyway!
