Very well made and are solid as a rock.
The feel is also very good.
Image quality wide open has quite good center sharpness but also soft corners.
Renders well with nice contrast, bokeh and flare.
Stop it down a bit and you can get some great sharpness.
Closest focus of 0.33m (1.1ft) is always a nice plus and the size of the lens is still similar to most 50mm.
Overall a very nice lens.
