Stockport GB
Having read a number of positive reviews of the MK3, I traded my MK 2 version. I am very impressed with the MK3 with an improvement in image quality and handling. It has a major bonus not mentioned in the reviews over the MK2 that there is no Hot Spot when used on a converted IR Body. ( 5D MK1 720um).
Very heavy Vignetting at 16mm f2.8. This is commented in all reviews.

Worthing GB Keen limited time.
I have not had much time to get to grips with this lens as yet but the photos I have taken so far are exceptional.
Haven't found any limitations as yet.
