I tested the lens, then returned it. It wasn't for me.

Also, every reputable review I've read about it, does not rave about its performance.

To get optimal sharpness out of it, you need to stop down to F8. I noticed most of your photos were stopped down. Why, not sharp enough wide open?

Poor and nervous bokeh...

I just don't see too many reasons for buying it.

Here's another review for the lens:

They compare the FE 28-70mm (kit lens).
