Purchaser

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good image quality stopped down. Relatively fast auto-focus for a macro lens (especially with Focus Limiter engaged). Focus Limiter and Focus Lock. 1:1 reproduction. Little to no CAs in most situations. Adequate construction. Good manual focus for an AF lens.
Bad points:
Expensive for a f2.8 lens. Corners not good wide-open. Strong vignetting between f2.8 and f4. Noisy screw focus. Lens extends to double the length in 1:1 mode. Some CAs in certain situations. Optimal image quality across full-frame only around f5.6-f8. (Wish there was an SSM 50mm Zeiss on the pipeline...)
