The lens far exceeded my expectations in this respect: the chromatic aberration is as good as gone, and sharpness holds up very well up to the edges of the frame. It appears that despite Tokina's "Recommended for digital SLR" text on the box, the lens was clearly designed with film in mind. I can highly recommend the lens for any film shooters that may have stumbled on these pages.
