Great lens, minor issues

Miss Bee, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I love and have used this lens for many many years. It's produced beautiful results with portraits. There are some minor issues which can be annoying at times or you can work around them. Those this lens has a higher aperture it still performs poorly in low light situations. It has a very difficult time focussing and often takes awhile to lock in the focus point. Sometimes not at all. There needs to be ample light when using this lens for tack sharp images.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Still the Best 50mm Value

  • Excerpt: I will start with the negatives, which I'm sure most reviewers could agree on. The focusing speed is not blazing. It is probably one of the slower USM lenses out there. Not slow in absolute terms, but in AI Servo at close range with a moving subject you're likely to get some OOF shots. The vignetting at f/1.4 is pretty extreme. It's also a little "smeary" with lower contrast up until about f/2.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Slow Focus, Vignetting

Great lens for the price

  • Excerpt: I use this lens for proffessional portrait sessions. It's a good lens for the price. Getting crisp and clear images while shooting wide open is almost impossible with this lens, but you get what you pay for and it is a solid lens once you stop down a few steps. Nice bokeh. Overall satisfied. Good first lens to buy if you are interested in purchasing your first prime lens and don't want to spend too much money on it but still want a good lens.
