Clarity is incredible
This lens is great, about as good as it gets in terms of price to quality ratio. This lens is a few years old as of this review, but it is still well worth it. The clarity is still wonderful, years after release.
1) Outstanding ‘normal’ lens: 55mm is a versatile lens and the 1.8 aperture on this means that it works extremely well in low light. Bokeh is nice as well.
2) It’s a quiet and small lens. Shooting photos of videos is a dream. It handles really well and it’s a great lens to put on your camera and have a small footprint in your bad.
3) Inexpensive considering the quality. There are cheaper lenses at this, or similar, focal ranges, but they don’t have the same quality or colors as this.
1) Lens is not stabilized. It’s not a big con, as your camera most likely will be stabilized anyway and this lens is fast enough where it doesn’t matter. It’s a tiny negative against it.
Yes! Buttery smooth photos, great price, great size... this lens is worth having.
