Build quality

Great build quality and it got a nice feel to it.
Focus is really smooth and nice.


Conclusion

Really like this lens.
It has a nice feel and good image quality.
You do have quite some corner softness but not it you use it on a crop sensor.

Thumbs up:
Build quality with a nice feel to it.
Center sharpness
Great bokeh.

Thumbs down:
Corner softness
Would like a closer focus distance.
