Build quality wise, I don't find it too bad - people complain about the plastic, but it does seem sturdy in use, with no wobble or bending. The knobs are fine to turn in my experience, although I don't have any experience with Canon's equivalent.
Wide open I found mine to be decently sharp, definitely acceptable for my needs. Perhaps the complaints here are due to copy variation.

Focusing is quite easy, but the focusing ring is a little too loose for my liking, with little friction. I worry I'll knock it out of focus easily.

Any sample pictures?

A loose focusing ring can be improved in several ways including a LensBand (or the generic equivalent, the rubber band).
