Strengths:    See above.
Build like a tank!

Bottom Line:   
Allready at 1.8 high contrast and sharpness.
The Nikon- and Canon-likes reach this level at f: 4 or 5.6.
You don't need to stop down for a lot of higher contrast and sharpness.
Ideal for setting subjects and objects free in cities and landscapes and to use depth of field in a creative way.
Also great for portrait and fashion.
Bokeh is beautiful and looks natural.
