Check out the following site:
http://www.jafaphotography.com/wide.htm#Lens tests
I have had one of these for 6 months and think it's
great--very sharp and unobjectionable distortion. I
tested it against the 21/3.5, 24/2.8, 28/2 and 35.2.8.
It was the equal at f8 (only f stop compared) to all
except for the 21/3.5.
