The lift are rather small and have room for about 8 people but they go up at breakneck speed (7m/s). Despite this, it was probably the smoothest large scale lift ride I've been on, you don't really feel the acceleration, just your ears pop about halfway up. The ring room on the 34th floor used to house a regular, public restaurant but these days is only used for corporate events etc. It's glazed from floor to ceiling and rotates slowly (stopping for while, rotating again) so once you've picked a spot, you can just stay where you are.
Stupidly, I'd forgotten to pack my polarisation filter (and when I remembered this morning I couldn't find it) so taking photos through the glass was a bit tricky but not as bad as I feared. Here are a few examples:
