I really enjoyed your review. It was personal, balanced, thrustworthy and informative. I had hoped that more of the pictures would be able to open in larger versions to get a real feel for the lens. The onion I think I see in other pirctures as well (the bottle in the upper right corner, and in the large beautiful shot you have of a field with flowers in it). However, although I read that it is supposed to be conventional wisdom that this is a bad thing, for me I don't find it unappealing at all, and would even argue that it might add a touch of extra texture to the shots.
Looking forward to your next review!
