Build quality

Very good and solid.
Also have a nice feel to it.


Conclusion

Nice and well built lens.
Image quality is great but do have little glow wide open and some soft corners on a full frame camera.
The flare is also not the best looking so maybe not the best lens for that beautiful sunset.
