I'm pondering whether to get the 80/1.4 for use with my R8, could you
give us a little more user comments on this lens in terms of optical
performance. What's the sharpness, contrast, color & resolution like at
wide open and slightly stop down to say, to f4; both centre and edge?
Would you recommend it for portriat works?
