I accomplished what I set out to do with this lens.
5 January 2014
Summary: I purchased this lens to take my son's senior indoor portraits. It worked great for that purpose, but some of the pictures turned out a touch blurry. This could be partly my fault in just getting use to the lens and possibly being too much in hurry to snap a picture at times. It's also possible, too, that it was a used lens and not a brand new one. In any event, I accomplished what I intended with it. Thank you.
Summary: This was my first lens I used digitally on my D90 when I made my transition from film. The sales rep told me its a great lens for portraits, and they was right! But the quality doesn't just suit portraits as you can see from my sample photos.
Summary: This lens are very good. If you have full-frame camera, this is old-good 50mm, on crop this will be 75mm, so if you think to picture birthday party in small room with crop look at 35mm. Sometimes in semi-dark environments picture gets blurry, so be very very careful with settings on manual mode (I don't use auto). P.S. anyway, with this price you can't get better lens. Anyway this will be better than zoom lens (kit, or any other...
Conclusion: This is my first lens besides the 18-55mm non-VR kit lens that I use with my D3000. I am just beginning to expand my photography and I cannot believe I have used any other lens besides this one. The kit lens feels barbaric! The autofocus is super fast even in low light. The lens is a quite soft and fuzzy on the 1.8 end (why I gave it 4/5 stars), but the shallow depth of field makes it hard to focus at that level anyway.
Pros: Build Quality, cheap, Fast Focus, Lightweight
