I've been debating on getting this unusual focal length at ~ US$800 for a very long time.  In a cropped sensor, it is more liked 115mm focal length on a FF.  And I have a 70-200mm F2.8.  Should I keep it? After taken it out for a few days, it is a keeper.  It has good contrast at F1.8 with creamy oof, become sharper starting at around F2.0 with bubbles oof and sensationally sharp by F4. i wish it was a 85mm, better AF and closer focusing distance.
