Build quality

Really good!
Very solid and well put together.


Conclusion

Great lens that performs good at all apertures and I struggle to find bad things about this lens.
The bokeh is not as soft as one would like in some occasion.

Thumbs up:

Build quality

Thumbs down:
Bokeh can be little rough at some occasion.
Closes focus of 1.8m (6ft)
