Don't need all of this stuff

Horton, Amazon

  • Summary: Apart from the filters and the tulip, I'm not using ANY of the stuff that came with my new lens. Its all collecting dust. Its a good little collection, if you actually use it. Also, I talked to a specialist who advised me never to clean my camera on my own... so I probably won't be trying out all of these gadgets.

worth having for the money

J.A., B&H Photo
23 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I am traveling overseas to scout a documentary, and only have room/money for a few good zooms. Threw the nifty fifty in there as well, as it's a great deal for the money, basically disposable, and gives me a 1.8 prime to use in super low light situations, when I'm stuck with my 2.8 and f4 zooms.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Value for money
  • Cons: Slow Focus, Weak Casing

More than a bargain !

Tatiyana Kent, B&H Photo
10 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I primarily use this lens for portrait, fashion and product photography. Its amazing at capturing detail, providing soft images and helping in low light scenes. The only thing that I notice is that when it is too dark, the auto/mf focus slows down dramatically which causes aberrations to happen. You would definitely need a tripod once its dark outside. Another thing is that the lens is made of plastic, so its easy to break once you drop it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Weak Casing

Cheap and cheerful

Brittraveller, B&H Photo
13 November 2013
  • Excerpt: It feels extremely light in comparison to my other lenses and the autofocus is worryingly noisy, however, it does take lovely portraits and is definitely worth the price - especially when compared to other prime lenses with this sized aperture...if you want an idea how to get professional-quality shots but are on budget, this is for you.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Weak Casing

Good Lens

Flavio Cabral, B&H Photo
13 August 2013
  • Excerpt: This lens is very fun to use in day-to-day and is also a great option for those who are beginners in photography. Fast, it is good to do night shots and portraits where the cameras with crop factor. She makes a good job in low light but the focus a little hesitant in these conditions. Indeed their focus is not always accurate besides being noisy and not having the option of full-time manual focus (FTM).
  • Pros: Light, Lightweight, Sharp
  • Cons: Focus Inaccurate, Noisy, Slow Focus

Great Product, Terrible Customer Service

Great for the budget conscience

KPM, B&H Photo
13 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I picked up this lens to throw in my video kit. It's pretty cheap and the motor is slow and loud, but gives pretty good image results. A great lens for a student to help with low light situations, or a pro that needs a beater to throw in the bag.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Focus, Weak Casing
