Just great.

(This review is for a version II of this lens, with an EOSM mount)

Optical quality is very good to excellent, even at f/2.8.

Flare-performance is pretty impressive. The lens resist well to it and, when it does appear, it is both contained and very usable, aesthetically-wise.

Construction quality is also very good, with the focus ring offering a bit of excessive resistance but it this more of a product characteristic than an operational hindrance.

If it was just a bit (tiny bit) cheaper it would be unbeatable in terms of "price-to-performace" ratio. With the current price point it is still an excellent offer.

If you own a EOS M, a Fujifilm X, a Samsung NX or Sony E (the available mounts) I most vehemently recommended buying one.
