Summary: It's known that all lens with a fixed focal lenght has an outstanding picture quality and this follow that. The images captured with this lens, even in low light conditions are great. Very sharp, beatiful colours. With the maximun aperture, the bokeh are great. Excelent for portraits. Value for this amount of money is awesome.
Summary: I have a Sony Alpha A55 which is my first foray into the DSLR world. I have always used point and shoot cameras before, owing to their low cost and my busy schedule precluding learning how to shoot photos with quality gear. Well, I have found the time and this lens has made a big difference in the quality of my photographs. I have learned the proper use of Aperture Priority shooting which I now use almost exclusively for still photographs.
Summary: I purchased this lens as a cheap prime option for portraits. It takes incredibly sharp images with my A58, huge improvement over the kit lens that came with my camera. Allows me to take indoor photos without the flash, which is a big help for me! For the price, this lens is an incredible value. Also, big thanks to Amazon on the shipping. Was quoted a delivery date of 2/14 and it arrived a day sooner! Bonus!
Summary: No fault of the distributor but the box for the filters was mis-marked and I received the wrong size. Not to worry the distributor got the correct filter sizes out to me in a timely manner with no questions asked. I recommend this company and would do business with them again.
