Let's get the negative stuff out of the way: it's expensive, it's heavy, and it's manual focus only. Once you get over it, you're left with something that's really bordering on pure optical perfection. Even wide open it's sharp corner to corner, (actually sharper than many reputable lenses ever get even stopped down) also with very high contrast, no distortion, no chromatic aberrations (both lateral and longitudinal) and great colour rendition. Plus the build quality is outrageous, this thing will easily last half a century without breaking a sweat. also bokeh is really nice. Really hard to find any fault with this.

SOOC image, wide open.
