Review Date: May 25, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $290.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Good size, great range of DOF, great low-light capabilities with f/1.4, seems like a great deal for the price
Cons:
No zoom, but then again it makes me think more about the shot

This is my first and only lens at the moment. I'm a beginning photographer so I wanted a fast, fixed lens so that I would think about my shots instead of just using the "AUTO" shot mode on my camera. It has been great for that.

I hate shooting with a flash, so the f/1.4 is great for me - I've gotten some fantastic shots in low light using this lens - it really picks up colors well.

One of my favorite shots with this lens can be found at: http://www.michaelmaxwell.info/gallery2/d/1029-1/one+of+many.jpg It really makes me think about my DOF options before I take the shot.

Highly reccommended for both the price and the shot quality. My only gripe is that I need a wide angle lens, but that's my problem... not the lens'!
