    I have read that it is sharp, but the DOF is pretty slim wide open.

    It's certainly sharp wide open, but contrast is low...which will can potentially give the impression of soft depending on the subject, but that can be adjusted in post. And, of course, its brilliantly sharp when stopped down to f/2.8. Certainly the sharpest 35mm equivalent lens for the system.
