Sharp, excellent build quality, useable wide open, not huge, interesting bokeh 
heavy, low contrast wide open, coating not as good as SSC 
Great and affordable 1.2 lens. Sharp enough wide open. Bokeh can be a bit wild at times, but I like it. For image samples, see (; for a video shot with the lens, check out (
