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 & lightweight size, it becomes a must-have portrait lens! A MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED lens for FX owners!
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Rugged, Small, Strong Construction
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.
Excerpt: This lens gives me super sharp nature photos. I discovered that many of my best nature photos had been captured with this medium length lens. Its fast f/2.0 capability compliments its sharpness by enabling me to easily stop the action.
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.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
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
