Image quality

Wide open gives good center sharpness and not that severe corner softness.
Next to all corner softness is gone by f/5.6 and the lens is very good from here on.

Build quality

All metal and very solid.
Have a nice feel to it.


Conclusion

Good overall image quality and very nice build quality and feel.
Bokeh is moslty very good but can look a bit odd sometime.
But its a wide angle lens so it's not like you will see that very often.
