Outstanding lens for the value. If you can snag this for under $100, you'd be hard pressed to find a better option at a similar price (but that's true for most of the M-series'). Around $175-ish the max for what I would pay for this lens. Build quality is excellent, as is form factor. Bokeh is quite good, and the 100mm is not too large on a APS-C that still makes for a very affordable portrait lens. Sharpness can actually be a bit too much for a portrait lens stopped down, but is wonderful wide open. The only down side is I almost always have to PP the color and contrast (but that's true for most legacy lenses). Bottom line is this is one of the best values out there.
