I have this lens since very few time. So it is a bit early to give a deep analysis.
It is not so easy to use this lens: for focus and to measure the light. It is possible but you have to take your time: live view x10 for the manual focus, and some trials looking the histogram to fix the exposure. For the kind of shots, I want to do with this lens, it is not a problem, often using a tripod.

At widest aperture, the vigneting is important. The main drawback of the lens. The quality in the corner is not at the best, but reasonnable for night shots.
But, when the aperture is close around f/11, the overall image quality is good.

To sum-up, the ratio Quality/price is good. However, this lens must be used with care and has some drawback. After, it is to you to evaluate what you want to do with this lens.
