ownership:I have experience with this lens
compared to:Minolta: 100/2.8 soft, 50/1.7,
price paid:
very good picture quality
relatively fast autofocus
comment:It's a fantastic lens, with extreme good picture quality. Sharp like a razor (by F2.8 also good, but from F4 perfect), it has a beautiful bokeh, none chromatic aberration, none spherical aberration, nice colours.
And it's really lightweighted, and really small. It's easy to handheld (for long time also).

And it's nice, like a little gem. :-)
