dcm, thanks for posting the photos. I've been curious about this lens since it was announced and have only seen 1 test on a German site that gave it so-so marks. From your photos, it seems like a great little lens. The Longs Peak photos bring back some interesting memories, too. About 20 years ago, a friend and I got a late start on our ascent and found out firsthand why they say, "Be off the summit by Noon." We got caught in a terrifying thunderstorm just below the summit and ended up going down the southwest side of the peak, leading to a very long off-trail hike ending well after dark.
