Build quality

Solid as a rock!
All the moving parts feel like they should.


Conclusion

This is a really good lens!
Takes great images and have a good built quality.
But you have quite a lot of corner softness and this is not completely gone even at f/22

Thumbs up:
Image quality
Build quality

Thumbs down:
Corner softness
