Build quality

Very nice and solid.
It also have a great feel to it.


Conclusion

Overall quite the nice lens but did expect a bit better sharpness wide open.
But looks great from f/5.6 and also renders nicely with good contrast and bokeh.
Flare looks good but backlight can be a little problem.


Thumbs up:
Renders well
Build quality / Feel
Bokeh


Thumbs down:
Sharpness wide open
Backlight can be problem
