Build quality

All metal and very nice and solid.


Conclusion

Overall a great lens in both image and build quality.
It's nice and sharp and not much corner softness.
Also renders well with good contrast and bokeh.

But flare and backlight can be a little problem and don't look all that great.
Is also have quite noticeable vignetting wide open on a full frame camera.
