reviewswhat are people saying

"Rated at a minimum focusing distance of 7 inches, I have found this lens easily focuses down to 4 inches and is sharp all the way down to f/2 (1.8 seems a bit much at times...)"

bhphotovideo.com

"It produces very nice images even in low light, wonderful bokeh and a very shallow depth of field."

bhphotovideo.com

"The biggest weakness of this lens is auto-focus. It is slow, not always accurate, and it requires two adjustments to switch between AF and MF."
