Build quality

It's all metal and are very solid and well built.
The feel of this is also very good.


Conclusion

I really like this lens!
It looks and feels great and it can give some nice quality images.

Wide open is fairly sharp and is also quite well corrected for a flat focal plane.
So not that much corner softness but you do however get some noticeable glow.
Find the bokeh to look very nice in most cases but also quite ugly in a few others.
Renders well with good contrast but some of that is lost wide open with its glow.

Somewhat big lens but that's quite common for this focal length and a f/2 aperture.
Also the 0.3m (1ft) closest focus can be very handy.


Thumbs up:
Image quality
Build quality
Bokeh (but this can look a little off in some cases)
Closest Focus of 0.3m (1ft)

Thumbs down:
Glow wide open
