Those that get the lens soon, give us the details, we are eager. Thanks.

It's a solid lens. The OOF rendering is reasonable although nothing in particular to write home about. The colour rendition is good and feels richer than the kit lens. Sharpness is on par with the 50/f1.8. It's a little soft wide open but sharpens up reasonably quickly. It's not clinically sharp but I didn't expect it to be so. All in all, it's probably fairly close in performance to my Canon 50/1.4 for which I paid a similar amount for with the 1.4 maybe edging it out sharpness-wise. Mind you I've only done a few street shots. Like so:
