All metal construction means it is very solid.
Focus is butter smooth (like an M lens), and focussing is very easy.
The aperture ring goes in single EV stops, ie 2.8 - 4 - 5.6 - 8 - 11 - 16 but this is not a real negative
Good sharpness even wide open, but some red/cyan CA at softish edges, but this is gone by f5.6. Very sharp across whole field from F8 onwards.
May be difficult to find one
Some flare when pointing near the sun (benefits greatly from a lens hood).
Here's an image taken at the MFD, @F4.0 in pretty poor light. Absolutely no post-processing.
