reviewswhat are people saying

"Very sharp lens, excellent image quality, great colours in the images. A great 50 mm all-rounder."

bhphotovideo.com

"As expected this is a fast, versatile lens for taking macro photographs."

bhphotovideo.com

"Sometimes the AF hunts backwards and forwards before making up its mind with close-up macro shots. This can slow down the capture of an image at times, but I can certainly live with it. Otherwise the AF is very accurate and very fast."
