Got it last night, only had a few minutes this morning before work.  Weather outside was frightful, so here are two quick ones as I was headed out the door.  I rarely focus with the center AF point, so the analysis of the MTF tests is good news.  These shots were taken with a 5DIII, f/1.4, ISO 100, 1/800th.

Haven't yet done a proper AFMA.  I think in the one where she is pointing at the cup, one or both of us swayed and it looks like front focusing.  The other we were both quite still, so the focus, set on her left eye, seems more spot on.  Tomorrow I'll have time to fiddle and try to get some shots with lights in the background for a better look at the bokeh.

Thanks, traveller, for getting the exhaustive and very helpful tests posted so quickly.

Thanks for sharing, traveller!

This sumes it up quite well:

This lens does everything well and one thing (low light) exceptionally well. It’s the decathlete of 85mm lenses.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.
