A great lens for the price

  • Summary: Overall, it will improve my photography. My main purpose is for wedding jewelry, and close-ups on newborn feet, hands, ears, noses, etc. I played around with it after I received it last night, and as many mentioned the automatic focus was very loud, and seemed clunky.

Beautiful pictures with my Canon Rebel T3i

  • Summary: Beautiful pictures with my Canon Rebel T3i. The only issue I have with it is that it creates a lot of noise with auto-focus, and often takes a long time to focus. It has a lot of difficulty with focusing at sharp angles and at close distances.

  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Weak construction

Great Image Quality - Poor Build Quality

LandL, B&H Photo
6 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens for its great image quality and compact size. I meets or exceeds my expectations in both areas. My only complaint is the build quality. This lens is made with cheap fealing plastc and the focus ring is very poorly damped.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Casing
