One of the best

The tiny size and weight make this almost self-recommending for full-frame users who want to keep things as small or light as possible.
Optics are superb for all practical purposes, with just a very small corner area of unsharpness and purple fringing against the light taking it below perfection. There are very few photographic situations where this will be remotely perceptible. Right from 2.8 the image has great sharpness and contrast; it's a far more consistent performer than the 50/1.8. 
AF performance is also more consistent than I've ever been able to get on my 6D with any of the three versions of 50/1.8.
