Review User description
Overall: 9 Price: 3 Features: 8 Build: 10
Pros: bully build, fast AF, new lens, tack sharp and f/1.2 Cons: aberration, price

Exceptional lens, excellent build - bully tough, but not too heavy. AF is fast, comparable to 35mm f/1.4 but some hunting appears at nigh or very low light. Circular aperture creates beautiful bokeh blur. Moderate green aberration is present at f/1.2 on bright edges. Surprisingly sharp at f/1.2 and tack sharp at f/2.
Lens for a lifetime.
