Excerpt: i rented this lens over a year ago and was sad to send it back. finally decided to make it my own. super sharp and fast great bokeh. excellent senior portrait lens. just wish it had IS. it probably doesn't need it but i'm shaky!
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I needed a faster lens for low light situations in the field for wildlife, and sports photography. I can now get amazing captures that were much harder to achieve with a slower lens! I've never had an f/2 lens, and the dof does take a bit of time and practice to get used to. Your focus has to be spot on! I've akso used this lens for portrait photography and the creamy, blurred backgrounds are what most all reviews stated...awesome!
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I'm using this lens for portraits and for weddings. Overall it's amazing, beautiful colors, bokeh and crisp!! The only complaint I'd have is that it's slow to focus in low light. I had a wedding last weekend and it struggled focusing for the reception. But outdoors it's spot on and creates beautiful images!
