It is an excellent example of what a lens should look like in this class - albeit it is still not perfect. It is very sharp at f/1.4 and outstanding when stopped down to medium aperture settings. Lateral CAs are very low even without image auto-correction. The quality of the bokeh is among the best that what we have seen in this lens class.

Sony calls it "The ultimate portrait prime" and, at least for Sony systems, I think they are right. The focal length is ideal for portraits (and a wide variety of other subjects) and there seems to always be enough light to photograph with this lens handheld. Highly-reliable focus accuracy is an important part of the image quality equation and this lens checks that box.
