 +===== Facts =====
 +  * an underrated gem: almost a perfect 17 mm lens
 +  * estimated retail price 270 EUR (currently a discontinued product)
 +  * in my use from 5/2005 to current date
 +  * the last lens that I will give away
 +===== Pros =====
 +  * sharp results with great colors
 +  * already wide on 1.6x crop body and becomes even wider on 1.3x and full frame
 +  * full metallic structure with excellent build quality
 +===== Cons =====
 +  * as almost all wide angle lenses has tendency to show significant CA especially when not stopped down
 +  * could have a larger maximum aperture but it seems that no 17 mm lens gives more than f/3.5
 +  * rather heavy for such a small lens
 +  * ultra-wide-angle zooms have practically replaced ultra-wide-angle primes on the market
