    A must have for your full frame body

    Customer review by cdubois2

    5.0 stars by cdubois2

    At this price it is a marvelous Portarit Lens for your full frame body, extremely light and unobstrusive, The pictures are simply marvelous with incredible sharpness. It also can be used as a macro lens. Focus is a little slow and the motor is not very quiet. Some will complain abou the speed having a maximum aperture of F2.8, but I have been using a Hasselblad for portait with a 150mm F3.2. and feel that the speed is much more than adequate, especially at this price point. Reviewing should be easier, ICould not find a way to rotate the picture!

    Very Good Portrait Lens, Impressive Performance

    Customer review by Envor

    5.0 stars by Envor

    The lens build quality is very good. Focusing of the lens is smooth, sharp and accurate. Bokeh affect of the lens is very smooth, sharpness is excellent from corner to corner of the frame and contrast is impressive. Even if you have 50mm lens, this is a good addition to your portrait lenses. Very happy to have this lens and definitely recommend to others. You will not be disappointed with the performance of this lens.

    This lens is super sharp starting at f2.8. Great for low-light photography. I appreciate the compact, light-weight design. The focus ring turns 180 degrees!!! This is very rare in the era of AF lenses where MF operation takes a back seat. However, this makes AF slightly slower, for example compared the 50/1.8. Fine by me as I prefer greater MF precision. This is the lens that Nikon and Canon users can only wish they had. It will always have a place in my bag.
