  • Excerpt: it was not easy to handle this lens at first as I was used to Sigma 30mm, the first impression I got from this lens was like what??? the object looks so big!!! yea so this is for shooting the object that's in some distance, not for ones closer.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

My favorite lens for outdoors!

  • Summary: Love this lens! It is my go to for family sessions and out door family fun with my girls. The only issue I noticed was once in awhile the subjects have a purple hue around them...which is why I gave it four stars. I don't like that as it's very noticeable to me while I'm editing my images.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens as an addition to my recent purchase of the Canon 6D camera purchase with the 24mm - 105mm f/4 kit len. I wanted the lower f stops so that I could shoot indoors without a flash. Thus far, this lens has been wonderful. I used it recently for my daughters' graduation receptions.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction

Don't be fooled by the price-tag ...

  • Excerpt: Don't be fooled by the price-tag of this lens. The quality is superb. With most products and industries, a direct correlation between price and quality is marketed. However, as a consumer, sometimes it is best to test this relationship for yourself (or research trustworthy, technical reviews).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Ease-of-use, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharpness
  • Cons: Less Rugged Than 'l'

Can't beat the price

  • Excerpt: I'm a videographer. and this lens is a must have, especially for old school discipline. If you're the type (like me) that thinks variable lenses don't make the cut the same way fixed lens do, this is an excellent lens, particularly if you can't afford the next step up which is the L series 85 mm...

Excellent sharpness and beautiful color

  • Summary: Excellent sharpness and beautiful color. The weakness of this lens is noticeable purple fringing and the high price for a plastic body. A good buy!
