positive:Almost everything!!!
Sharp from f2.
Excelent contrast.
Amazing colors.
Almost no distorsion or flare.
negative:Coma wide open.

comment:t f1.4 the colors and transitions are just amazing, good contrast and lower shapness but very sustained in all the frame on a FF. The way this lens captures colors and light is just amazing, photos really look different.

The lens makes sense only on FF.

Build is superb, as a G should be, only Hood should be improved.
