I have the older version of this lens with the larger front element and 
use it a lot for architectural photography for one of my clients. I have 
been very satisfied with all the results and would not change it for the 
world (maybe for the newer version though) and have printed 16" x 12" 
off it with no problems. You do get some probelms with converging 
verticals as you will with all lenses of this length, but these I 
correct using Photoshop 6.
