Best purchase of the year

C Steva, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens is the best purchase I've made in a long time. Worth every penny. Making the transition from kit lenses to this has made a world of difference in my photography. This has not come off my camera body since it arrived and I couldn't be happier with the difference it's made in my images. Wonderful, shallow depth of field for lovely portraits, also fabulous for low-light situations.

Good lens and Great for the Money

  • Summary: Good lens and a great lens for the money. It's sharp at 1.8 and gets great by 2.4. It does have a plastic mount, but is feels really solid. I think it outshines the FA1.4 50mm because that lens tends to be soft until 2.8. This lens is cheaper too.

  • Summary: A very good lens for the price. Granted its made of plastic which a lot of folks think makes it inferior but the image quality is very good. I would recommend this lens.

  • Excerpt: Just acquired this lens and putting it through its paces ... and it's living up to its reputation. Not a lot to add that has not already been mentioned.
  • Pros: Sharp, bokeh, light weight, super "bang for the buck" ...
  • Cons: 52mm filter (not 49mm that I usually carry), lack of Quickshift, etc.

  • Summary: great pictures every time with my Pentax K-R. I shot some pictures at christmas time of my son, and everybody I showed them to thought I went to a studio. They turned out that good.

Excellent crisp images

Mike, Amazon
19 August 2014
  • Summary: Excellent crisp images, fast focusing, great for indoors and outdoors alike. Yes, the autofocus is a bit on the loudish side but this is a quality lens and the price point is excellent. I was looking into the 1.4 aperture lens (2x more expensive) and grabbed this one instead. Couldn't be happier.
