Build quality

Very nice and solid.
It also have a great feel to it.


Conclusion

I like this quite a lot but it's not a perfect one.

Image quality are nice and love the bokeh.
Wide open have quite good sharpness and little corner softness.
This however have little glow and noticeable vignetting.
Contrast is also a bit flat and that on all apertures.
I don't se that as a bigger problem becouse this can be adjusted for the finish print.


Thumbs up:
Image quality
Build quality
Bokeh


Thumbs down:
Contrast is a little flat
Flare / backlight
