Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant pictures when you get the knack! The quality it beautiful - perfect for portraits and close ups and great in low lighting when you don't want to use a flash and get more natural results.
Bad points:
Ideally need to use this lens with a tripod and make sure the focal point is stationery or end up with blurred shots. May be just that I haven't got the hang of it yet. Needs a bit of reading up on!

Light in weight, good for general use up to a point but I purchased it more for its portrait which is good?

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Light and quick. Good to get back to a prime lens with all the benefits of picture quality, and reminds you of how lazy you get with faming using a zoom.
Bad points:
Probably not going to last as long as my old lenses-mount not as solid
