reviewswhat are people saying

"Great lens, Super sharp for both macro and portraits. It is my most used portrait lens. Wonderful fast focus, good build quality."

"More than satisfied with the sharp, fast focus, but even happier with portrait results."

"After purchasing this lens and trying it out a few times, I think I can do without this lens. For me, being a novice.. its hard getting use to the focus, distances.. etc. Maybe I just need more practice, because so far I haven't had luck with a clear photo."

I agree.
Don't use the spec graphics when they are not appropriate. Like Fish eye and tilt shift. It is just a type of lens, not a pro or con. Leave the graphic's blank. It is confusing for newbies. It looks like, I just filling in something because its there.
Anyway's it is a nice lens

I'm both baffled and amused that a prime lens is listed as having a poor zoom range. Seriously?
