Excerpt: I just took this lens out of the box and wa-la! I took two pics and loved it instantly! Took it outside for the first time and loved the results on the frost. I can only expect to get better results as I get more familiar with this lens!
Excerpt: I shoot with a Canon 6D and was convinced that there would not be another lens that I loved more than my Sigma ART 35... until I bought this. The gorgeous compression, the lightning speed focus, and the sharpness is unreal. I don't know how I survived life before owning it!
Excerpt: I am a photographer and absolutely love the look this lens gives me. I prefer to use it for seniors and engagement sessions, but have difficulty with young children as you have to be so far away from them to get the shot.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: There is lots of discussions about this lens being one of the sharpest canon lenses, and it may be.. but it is not even close to that at f2. This lens is great for candids and non-studio portraits. At f2 it is sharp enough for candids but not too sharp to catch every blemish your subjects may have.
