Outstanding optic. The only thing I would warn against is, in the way you mount and dismount the lens.
It's so small its hard to get a grip on the thing to take it off and mount, one is tempted to grip the mounted lens hood to assist. After a while of doing that, the front ring will work itself loose and it will get loose enough you eventually have to send the lens in to get it repaired.
