    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 5 out of 5★ by 4reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by A must have for your full frame body 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! 03/20/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Very Good Portrait Lens, Impressive Performance 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. 08/21/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by No cons 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. 01/29/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by best value out there for anyone looking to add a nice portrait lens to their collection, this is the lens you want...look at the graphs, look at the online reviews, then look with your own eyes...shooting into the light cropped in at will get a little magenta CA that's easily taken care of in post...and the AF tends to hunt in low light situations, the lightweight feature makes it great if you're doing pet or children where capturing a moving subject is part of it...i really think you'll love this lens if you're looking for sharp images without having to take out a second to get them 07/24/2013
