extremely sharp lens - still nearly full open

I've got this lens today by amazon and have tested it, immediatly. wow!

My old Takumar 3,5/35 phantastic buidt lens, my pentax 2,8/28, love it very much, but this lens

shows very high contrast, very nice colors, finest contours, still at f4.5. I'm astonished, that German test newspaper had given only half of points. this lens of 130 $ only fullfill all my wishes.

very nice bokeh.It isn't necessary to sharpen images with PhSh after shooting.
full 5 of 5 points. very very content with it. (SCARCELY CA's wide open visible, f 6,7 none).

It seems to be the same line as DA 1,8/50
