Summary: Coupled with the Sony A99, this lens takes spectacular pictures. Use this sense if you have kids and you won't be disappointed. The details it captures especially on close-ups are just amazing.
Summary: This is a very fun lens, great bokeh! Bought it used, although it didn't come in the original box, it was in perfect condition. Can't wait to get out and use it more. Very happy with the purchase!
Summary: Great lens. Allows me to open up so I'm able to select the focus point I want and have other parts of image our of focus. I also am able to shoot available light at family gatherings without the distraction of flash.
Summary: I bought this lens for my Sony A65. I own the SAL 35 and 85mm lenses which are cheap lenses and I wanted one lens that was of higher quality. Given the 1.5 crop factor I figured I would push a little more money into this as my portrait lens. After getting it and manually focusing on points at 1.4 I was impressed with the files, sharp with good bokeh and nothing crazy at the corners.
