Excerpt: I bought this lense because I wanted to achieve smooth bokeh for portraits and something that would give me an edge in low light, well, aIl can say is that it performs amazingly! This is now my daily lense in place of the Canon 1.8 which doesn't even come close.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: For your frame of reference, I bought this lens specifically for use in videography, so I could give an artistic look to indoor interviews that I do on a regular basis, mostly in corporate office settings for startup companies that are looking for artistic and unusual framing.
Excerpt: This lens is absolutely amazing! Exreme;y sharp images, quiet/accurate autofocus. It is definitely worth the $. Nice weight, great build quality. Really shines in low light performance. I mainly use it for video and my interviews are looking spectacular.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I used this lens for events & street photography I've probably taken 10000 shots so far. This lens does have troubles focusing at 1.4, but that is the only real problem I've had. It's sharp and gives great color, bokeh looks really smooth as-well .It feels strong and durable, in-fact I've dropped it...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Great Colour Rendition, Nice Bokeh, Sharp
Excerpt: This is the best lens for the value in our arsenal. We use this lens for videography on our Sony A7s. Fantastic artistic look, incredible bokeh, great in low light, etc etc etc. We use primarily for documentaries & weddings.
Excerpt: My use for this lens is a fast "normal view" for my T4i. Mostly indoor capability where a longer focal length is too close. It's wide aperture allowed me to take pictures without flash that would normally require my ISO to be way too high. The build quality is it's best attribute.
Solid lens, good price, great choice for any APS-C shooter

Summary: Basically a 50mm f/1.4 prime lens when used on APS-C. That's about the ideal single-prime configuration. Couldn't be happier! Camera body tested: Sony DSLR-A700 (APS-C) PRO: -Standard lens! 30mm has the same field-of-view as a 45mm lens on an APS-C sensor.
