Pretty worthless review...

Huh. Color me not very impressed by the reviewer. Tests a wide aperture telephoto lens on a test scene about the size of a sheet of paper and makes no effort to deal with the shallow DoF. Apparently not aware that lens designs such as this are very likely to behave quite a bit different at such close distances than at "real world" distances. Didn't even align the books on the bookshelf. I'd say his four pages of "sharpness" examples are mostly worthless comparisons showing nothing beyond expanding DoF with aperture. No way to evaluate the lens at all from those shots.

Anyway, will certainly be an interesting lens to see reviewed by someone competent.
