Plastic fantastic DA 50/1.8

I really just got the DA50/1.8 because it was cheap and because I have a thing for 50mm glass, but it is far more than I ever expected. Here is a shot through plate glass window from my recent trip to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. I am continually impressed by its sharpness and color fidelity.

sometimes, this lens comes across as too sharp and clinical, but it consistently amazes me as well...
