Thom's Mini Review: There's always space in my FX bag for this lens. It's compact and highly capable. I've never been disappointed in the optical results I get with this lens, especially stopped down a bit. Indeed, I'm reminded of Galen's love of the 20mm f/4 Nikkor: small and competent. It's the best 20mm for FX I know of at the moment. Recommended
