too early to tell

  • Excerpt: It is too early for me to give any more than a three star as I had expected this lens to be clear close subject and blurred background. I thought it was a prime and maybe I don't understand prime but I thought it would be only 1.8 but I am getting camera info which gives larger numbers.

  • Summary: I have to admit I dismissed the other reviewers' warnings about the poor build quality of this lens. I thought that as long as it takes good pics, who cares about build quality.

My Potrait Lens

  • Excerpt: This was my first lens purchase, and there are no issues with the lens itself, the quality is great, and it does the job it's meant to do. My problem with the lens is simply that it doesn't do that much better of a job over the stock lens that comes with the sony Alpha cameras for my uses.

  • Summary: I loved this lens for the month or so that I had it. I recently made the switch from using a Sony NEX-5 to a Sony Alpha On the mirrorless camera I had a wide-angle lens that I wanted for my alpha, and after doing much research I thought this would be good for my new a50.

One of my favorite lenses

  • Excerpt: Use for low light shots indoors. Also use for people pictures. After getting used to the lens, I can blur the background out by setting to f/1.8. Tried using outdoors, but lens is not ideal for scenery: too narrow field of view.
