A good lens to have!

  • Excerpt: This a good solid lens to have as part of your kit. Here are my thoughts on the lens: Pros: It is solid and appears to be well made! It has very little vignetting and purple fringing at it's widest aperture. It is very sharp at f2 and up and has very nice colors.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Bokeh

  • Excerpt: Mainly portraits is what I use this for. I like the images tremendously when I can get it in focus. I usually shoot it in manual focus, because auto is hit and miss. I learned that for faster shooting a photographer must be very familiar with how this lense works. Requires practice to get correct.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy

Better Than Expected!

  • Excerpt: Just like everyone else who considered buying this lens, I was very weary of the autofocus issues. However, those issues seemed to be related to multi-point autofocus as opposed to just using single or zone AF.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Heavy

Great for low light photogrphy

  • Excerpt: I used it to photograph a band at a bar with almost no stage lighting. I shot at the bar the week before with my f/2.8 24-70mm lens and had to set ISO to 16,000 to get proper exposure without a flash. Shooting the same bar with this lens I was able to dial the ISO down to 6400 @ f/1.4

Very Sharp, most of the time

  • Excerpt: Very sharp lens when set at f2.2 or above. Under that and it softens a bit. I thought about switching but it seems that the cannon lens is a little bit worse when it is set to f1.8 or below so I kept the Sigma. Other than that, the lens is made very well and is great for standard portraits.
