Build quality

Very good and with a solid and quality feel.


Conclusion

Really nice lens, image quality is good at all apertures but you have some soft corners wide open.
One nice plus is that it can focus down to 0.33m (1.1ft)


Thumbs up:
Build and Image quality
Center sharpness
Closest Focus: 0.33m (1.1ft)


Thumbs down:
Corner softness but this is a miner thumbs down
