How do any of us know whether the lens is good or bad based on a single photograph of a subject at an angle to the sensor with lots of fine detail probably taken close up, using F1 .8?

Depth of field should be very narrow close up at f1.8. The camera instruction book clarifies autofocus may not be accurate with this type of subject.

I would want to see a much better example of what the lens can or cannot do before passing an opinion on whether the lens might be good or less good.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
