Even though I was spoiled with the sharpness of the Sigma 50/1.4 I find this piece of glass really sharp.
Build quality is from the same high standard, and with 50% of the price and having 90% of what the Sony lens has to offer it's a true bargain.
Disadvantages are its large weight (1300g) and size, both are normal for 70-200 lenses (the Sigma even is 1cm shorter than most 70-200s).
