Amazing learning tool!8/30/2011
Very good prime lens for starting out. Takes amazing portraits and is a very good learning tool. If you have the money though getting a lower f stop would be the only thing I would have done differently.
Good lens wth shortcomings8/30/2011
The lens does not have an internal motor and so I had to focus manually. This resulted in more than 80% of shots being out of focus with an aperature setting of 4 or bigger. When I get the focus right however the photos are stunning. Very good in low light (which is when it is more difficult to focus) and very good brokeh.
At first I was frustrated at the fixed-focal length almost never used it and considered selling it....then I forced myself to start using it and I LOVE IT!! I use it for EVERYTHING (or try to lol)
