  • Excerpt: Great bokeh for the price. Way cheaper than the 1.2L, better bokeh than the 1.8.

Excellent high aperture for portrait

The Big Nick, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Great for portrait with blurred background. At high aperture, it lacks sharpness a bit. Also fixed 50mm zoom forces you to be pretty far from your human object.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Output

Good step up from the 1.8

Dana, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I mainly do portrait photography, so I wanted to upgrade from the 50 mm 1.8 to this lens for a sharper, more accurate focus. Out of the box, this lens was not calibrated correctly to my DSLR and was front-focusing (making all of my photos slightly out of focus) so I had to take it to a camera shop for microadjustment. Now that it's calibrated correctly, it's great.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Powerful Output, Versatile
  • Cons: Not Calibrated Correctly

Great lens, but a little pricey

FloraBug, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens, but don't expect the image quality to be great at F1.4. Stepping down to F2.0 helps with the image quality. I think this lens is overpriced.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight

Good Lens

SayCheese, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm a hobbyist and amateur photographer who just started taking photos. I've read good things about this lens and also read lots of good reviews. One thing I've had trouble with and have also read about was trying to shoot at f/1.4 in low-light situations (dimmed lit rooms). It seems to have trouble focusing on a subject at that aperature. But again, I'm an amateur. I may be doing something wrong or not doing something right.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use
