Image quality

Wide open have good center sharpness but gets soft fairly fast towards the corners.
The corner softness is quite gradual and I don't feel it that imposing but some is still there at f/11.
Also have a quite noticeable vignetting wide open.

Build quality

Very good, all metal with a rubber focus grip.


Conclusion

Good quality lens that renders nicley.
But do have some vignetting and corner softness.

Thumbs up:
Center sharpness
Bokeh
8 bladed aperture

Thumbs down:
Corner softness
Vignetting
