reviewswhat are people saying

"Love this lens for those closeup shots. I needed a lens with a high F stop and I love to take portrait shots and it works great for them. The background blurs just like I needed it to!"

"I bought this lens for portraits and low-light sporting events. It takes amazing photos. I recently used it to shot an evening youth football game and couldn't have been happier. I would definitely recommend this lens to everyone."

"Use mainly for portraits. It is a liitle soft on focusing at 1.4 and can be somewhat hazey on highlights."
