    Hi, yes. I do have it. I was actually surprised of how well it handles corners, because even on aps-C it was smeary. If you look corner to corner sharpness at 20 mm, that will not happen. You'll have to stop down to F 11-13 to get them acceptable. Untill f9 it smeares corners. But zoomed in even litlle it gets better. I had it on my vacation just recently, and I took some great landscape shots. Must say that untill I can afford 15-30, it will do well. Prize differense is big. BTW it does not vingette much. Some issues with focusing with CPL, what is needed, but as it is wide, you can just use MF, when needed. I'd recommend IF you are on budget. Samyang 14/2.8 is sharper, but I don't like its distortion. And you have to stop it down too to get corner sharpness.

    I have been lusting after wide prime thou, mostly I used this lens at 20mm and it is quite big for that. I'll post pictures later. You can see some at Tokina lens club.
