What did this lens cost you?
It seems to outperform the 16-35mm f4 VR at the wide end (just by looking at the 16mm figures and the 21mm figures, I estimate the 18-35mm to do as good or a tad better at 18mm) resolution wise. And CA is a little lower as well.
Even at 35mm the differences are minimal as well... That makes this new "cheapo" quite a bargain?

Thanks M, you're testing it on DX also?
I just checked the review of reputed 16-35 F4, and i find this lens to be better surprisingly...
Klaus: No VR, less ambitious max. aperture at 35mm, smaller range. Not a big surprise IMHO.
Then why are not all consumer zooms better than their professional counterparts? (means, the pro zoom needed to be better, what with such an expensive price tag...)
If i got to shoot this at F8, then why not get a 20/2.8....
