Excerpt: I didn't like this lens at first, but I ended up taking it to an event because it was the shortest I had that would work. The colors were better than my favorite lens(k 85 f1.8) very sharp even at 2.4( I am a pixel peeper). I ended up not even having to PP 75% of the pictures I liked.
Pros: Cheap, Sharp, Light weight-small
Cons: for the price nothing...Not considering the price...nothing.
Excerpt: Wow, under $200 for a well made light lens. Took some photos when I got home, auto focus hits every time even in horrible lighting. The throw on this lens makes my sigma seem like a piece of junk. It has a much longer throw than my 50mm 1.4 HSM which is hard to manual focus. The lens is not as cheaply made as I was thinking, when I got to the store and held it compared to nikon and canons cheap-o lenses there was no comparison.
