I am thinking about put it on ebay. It's overlap with my other lens. But somehow I feel reluctant let it go.

Very soft, like it has a softar filter, I'm guessing less than 50 L/Pmm it reminds me of the old pre-war soft focus lenses for portraiture like the Leica Thambar.

So if you want to do 1930's 'Hollywood' style portraits it's nice, not for shots like the one above.
