Build quality

Very well made and are solid as a rock.
The feel is also very good.


Conclusion

Image quality wide open has good sharpness all over but also noticeable glow.
Stop it down a bit and you can get some very nice quality pictures.
Also reanders well and nice bokeh which the 8 bladed aperture helps to keep in fairly round stopped down.

Overall a very nice lens.
