small & sharp!

Just take the picture!, B&H Photo
18 March 2014
  • Excerpt: This is truly an incredible portrait lens! However, one must always move your focus point (with this shallow of DOF one cannot focus and recompose. You MUST move your focus point!), and always use continuous focus tracking to correct-for the slight movement between you and your subject. <br /><br />Due to this lens' small &amp; lightweight size, it becomes a must-have portrait lens! A MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED lens for FX owners!
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Rugged, Small, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No tripod mount

Amazing depth of field

  • Excerpt: The bokeh created with this lens is truly amazing. I find that when photographing my preschooler I must increase the f-stop to ensure that his face stays in focus. Even with f/4.0, the bokeh is beautifully blurred.

Fast Sharp Versatile

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

  • Excerpt: What to say about the best portrait lens out there?<br />Fortunately is not so popular, so not so many people owns it and only some fortunate photographers do. the built quality is AMAZING. it's a REAL lens. nothing like those news plastic lenses. If you know how to use it the results are more than beautiful. are special. some people that had bad experiences with this lens is because the lack of technique.

Love it!

Luis, B&H Photo
1 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I read all the reviews both pros and cons. Haven't really had any cons despite the obvious ones that will come natural. It is a heavy lens with no VR and a telephoto range. You will need to be steady, no questions about it. This doesn't mean it's a bad lens just that you're not as a good photographer as you thought. No crutches on this one.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Unique lens

  • Summary: Useful primarily for playing games with bokeh, but that's what it's designed and marketed for. Good optics, as far as I'm qualified to judge.
