Played with a friend's specimen, for a half day, Henry. I thought 
the lens was spectacular in both handling and resultant 
photographs. Certainly an order of magitude better than the only 
other W.A. that I ever owned, i.e. the Canon 20mm 2.8 on the 
EOS1n. To be fair, that lens wasn't the red band Canon 'best' line, 
but it was still great fun to use.
