IMO, The 01 is the best of the Q system lenses, followed by the 06 tele zoom and the 03 FE. The 01 is sharp, fast, and incredibly lightweight.

Sounds right to me. Having f1.9 available really keeps the ISO down, and it's a sharp lens, even from wide open. Distortion can be bothersome, so use the in-camera distortion correction, or better yet, fix it in post.
