Just upgraded to the PZD model. Arriving Monday. It's just so much lighter and smaller than the previous one, and you've done wonders demonstrating its capabilities that I just had to do it. A great walk-around lens when you're not doing anything in particular. Can't wait! Smile

Just picked the lens up. Amazing how different it is to the older model. Half the size (and weight), nice and quiet and faster to focus. Looks good so far, but I don't think you've got anything to worry about photography-wise DP. Smile

Lol, the next photo might make you retract that statement...

hope it serves you well Chris. It's not infallible, but it's well worth the asking price, and a convenient little thing for sure.

I've just posted an article on lens creep if anyone's interested.

What a good idea. It's also handy if you want to just shoot at one focal length for a while and you wouldn't have to keep resetting the lens. I often like to use, say, 50mm for a while, so this'd come in handy in that situation.

And for today's shot (since the images in the article were taken with a different camera)...

Took mine out for its first run today on the brightest, contrastiest day yet (duh!) - around the Tower of London and the Thames.

I was very impressed with the focussing speed and overall sharpness and exposure. I haven't got a grad or polariser the right size yet so I was a constantly juggling with the over/under exposure button on the camera (or exposure lock) but there aren't many shots that I can't use, and those that are awful I knew would be so that's not the lens's fault. At 18mm, f3.5, camera to subject about 1 metre the barrelling was significant, but then that's to be expected. Stand slightly further back and use F8 and it was a different story - fine.

I'm glad I've upgraded to this lens as it's just so much better than the older model - lighter, more compact and quicker to focus. As a general carry around it's a winner.

Oooh, a greeny. Grin Forgot to mention, the VC was very quick to kick in too. Smile
And I will be putting some of my images into the gallery.
