Anybody using the Yongnuo 100mm F2?

I recently made a thread discussing the decision of going from apsc to FF, vs buying a faster lens for the apsc. Not forever mind you, just as a next step idea. I had all but decided that as my next purchase, a faster lens gave me more value than a whole new camera.

That decision was etched in stone when i found that Yongnuo makes the 100mm f2 for Nikon now. A while back i was looking up these YN lenses and saw that they made an 85mm f1.8 for EF but not F mount. So unfair Yongmuo! Then i saw the 100mm today for EF mount and i was even more jealous.

Then i looked up the NIkon version and poof, there it was. Sorry Yongnuo 🙄 Just wondering if anybody has noticed or used this lens. It has AF, 9 aperture blades, very nice looking bokeh, seems fairly sharp, and is only $170. The only downside i have heard is the AF isn't blazing fast, not an issue for my intended use of portraitry.

For anybody interested, here's a review i found. Going to order it tomorrow i think.
