Excerpt: Indoor, limited space portraiture is quite amazing with this lens. I also have 1.4G Lens and honestly i don't see much of a difference in wide aperture settings. In some ways this lens sims to be sharper. There is some difference in the "evening lights bokeh" and in it's softness, but qite frankly it's something I desire everyones in a while stylewise.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Sharp
Excerpt: I bought this lense for pictures around the house where lighting is a challenge. I have used it for taking pictures of our grand gaughter, my daughter's sugar gliders and dog. It has made the camera a lot less intimidating for my wife to use, and is a whole lot lighter than the 18-300mm lense that I bought with the camera.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Great Bokin, Lightweight, Reliable
Excerpt: Awesome performance at such price. No essential flaw. Great resolution as long as focus properly. It is versatile, but no outstanding personality. Two aspects of dissatisfaction. 1. focus shift occurred one year after bought it. 2. severe chromatic aberration at strong back light.
