Excerpt: I do dog rescue and the pictures sell the dog. I wanted a good sharp closeup with an artistically blurred background. This lens does it for me. My dogs portraits are crystal clear, the light in their eyes comes through but the background is just blurred enough to not take away from the dog. You need this lens because you can't get this effect without it. Love the lens and the service from B & H was perfect.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I currently use a Nikon D3200 for 2 years now, and one year and a couple of months shooting with the 35 mm. It is my favorite lens to use. Since, it's a prime lens it challeges you to move around to find the best composition and it is really sharp! I barely even detach it from the body since it covers many shooting angles and distances. I have also used it to do some night photography.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
