Not for everyone

Summary: THIS LENS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. It is not for noobs, it is not for the individual that has their camera on automatic, AV, TV or P. This lens is strictly manual, you will receive no help from the camera for focusing or aperture. Once this lens is attached to you camera your aperture becomes 00.

The lens isn't brand name quality or glass, and don't expect it to be--but it's still able to do exactly what I want and I'm SUPER...
Summary: A rather hard unit to work with. I am using this on my Canon XSI camera and the depth of vision is very shallow and it is rather hard to take good looking pictures with it. Admittedly I am not a pro or even a semi pro photographer, but I have been taking pictures for a long time.
