I have been looking at this lens since it came out but couldn't get myself to commit. After getting some unexpected cash at Christmas, and a nudge from Alan's review, I grabbed one. Holy Cow, I Love This Lens! It's sharp enough to leave a scar and the bokeh is as smooth as a baby's bottom! It was only 25 degrees with 40mph wind yesterday so I just ran out and shot whatever I could until my nostrils froze shut. Focus Peaking on my a77 made it a breeze. GET ONE! Here's a couple samples.
