Sony FE 85mm f1.8 portrait lens, great for the price or just plain great?

I have read many reviews /comments about the lens.

A lot of comments say " Great for the price", "Can't beat with this price", as it is indeed a lot cheaper than Batis. 1/3 of GM f1.4. If the price is not the major concern (only $200 cheaper for example), will you get a Batis instead?

Most of the negative comments are "CA is bad" while some says "it is not an issue as software can correct it". Also some reported quality control issue .

What do you think from your experience of using?

Currently a $50 discount may trigger me buying it.

Thanks
