    I just got the same exact lens in the mail today, too! I can say that after taking a few shots, I'm pretty happy with how sharp it is wide open. Here is a quick shot I took of the dog while sitting on the couch, at f/2.8 (some PP was done in Lightroom):
    DSC04117-2.

    Couple quickies...

    DSC00804_zps5337ec12.

    DSC00805resize_zpse76fd4ac.

    Not great but the ISO was a bit high. Need to take it for a good test run before I send the jury out on this one.

    I find that the minimum working distance is a bit longer than I like and it doesn't focus peak quite as as well as other Rokkors I have but it's sharp and has wonderful OOF areas. There is also a certain look this lens has that I find very appealing. I think it's almost as heavy as my 100/2.5. I like mine.
