Fun to use

I'm not using this lens too often, but every time I do, it's a lot of fun. It delivers very good image quality, there's really not much to complain. It's very sharp wide open. Build quality is nice, but nothing to write home about. Focusing ring is a bit stiff, especially in freezing temperatures.

The only major gripe I have with it is that it doesn't handle flaring too well, so watch out for that when shooting with very bright light sources in the frame. Other than that, I can only say it's a superb lens.
