Paul, Great Yarmouth Male amateur photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This lens is superb. Paricularly good for close up shots and low light shots without having to use flash. The lens also offers great opportunities to create stunning bokehs.
Bad points:
No zoom with this type of lens so you have to get cloce to your subject. Not realy a bad thing though.

Lloyd, London Photographer in the making

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Sturdy build, deceptively robust for its size.
Focuses very quickly and is very bright.
Creates a very nice image through the aperture range.
Can be used on an APS, or Full frame camera. Currently used on an APS.
Bad points:
This is my first and only prime lens, so at the moment, I cannot think of any bad points regarding this product.

Les, Norton Canes, Staffs. I teach photography professionally

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic speed and clarity that only a prime lens can provide. Being so fast gives you the optimum control and creativity to get the shot you want in all lighting situations.
Bad points:
No bad points but a general point to mention is that unless you have a full sized sensor that is only found on the top range DSLRs your not actually getting a lens equivilent to 50mm, if you have the C sized sensor which is the common size for entry and mid-range DSLRs it's going to be equivilent to around a 75mm lens.
