Good lens for the price

  • Excerpt: I must say I am really impressed with this lens. This is my first pro-level lens. The focus is perfect 8/10 times. Its a very sharp lens, and gives good results in low-light. The background blur is okay. I have heard complains about this lens losing its focus, I hope they resolved the issue, and I really hope my copy will not have any trouble in the future. Overall, if you are on a budget, you will not be disappointed with this. Its a good alternative to Canon 17-50.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: I mainly shoot video with my DSLR but like to dabble in photography from time to time. This lens is very versatile with both video and pictures. I have taken this lens to the beach a couple times during golden hour and the picture quality was significantly better than the kit lens. It was also good at taking action shots of my dog playing on the beach as well.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Flares

Solid lens for a great price

  • Excerpt: Couldn't be happier with the speed of this lens and the build quality for the price point. Only thing I would change on this lens is the size of the focus ring. It is very short and can make it tricky to pull focus while in movie mode.
