Amazing lens...Great lens!!...I love this lens, it works amazing with portrait shots and video is amazing - I did some interviews and they were beautiful!...Shots with it are always very sharp, and because of the nice wide maximum aperture, it's great for shooting in low light and getting that lustrous bokeh that everyone loves....It provides sharp optics and less chromatic aberration than the 35mm 1.8 and its distortion free (mainly because of its focal length).

Precise MF....Great lens....absolutely love this lens this lens pictures come out great if you are looking to upgrade it is worth the money to upgrade i love it better then stock lens must buy....absolutely love this lens this lens pictures come out great if you are looking to upgrade it is worth the money to upgrade I love it better then stock lens must buy...Good lens for anyone that wants to portray something really close to the lens, but forget it if you want to take a picture, lets say from feet to head, it's really hard to get, because you have to calculate all the time if the image is getting blurry or not, and it just makes it really tedious.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard Lens: This Canon 50mm lens has an unusually large maximum aperture so you can get detailed pictures even in low light without needing a flash. It's excellent for basic portraits and scenic shots, especially at night.
Very good...Great Prime...I shoot pics of my family almost exclusively and with kids its hard to get quick shots let alone crisp focus because they are always moving....I have not tested this lens to video yet but considering how quiet and smooth the autofocus is, it would but phenomenal for wide angle videos....I really like this lens because you can get a wide angle view, but you can get closer up to the subject and get a little bit of a macro.
Capture stunning images of wide perspectives with this Canon 9522B002 EF-S wide-angle lens that features an aspheric lens element for high image quality from the center to the edges. The circular, 7-blade aperture delivers soft backgrounds.
Great choice...Loving it....It does very well indoors, hardly weighs anything at all, and it does not knock stuff off the table every time I turn around when I am neck strappin' it....40mm is a good all around focal length for street photography where you do not want to be as noticeable with a much longer zoom lens screaming "DSLR" (my other main lens is the 18-135mm)....It's also great to use instead of the larger lenses when you want to take pictures without being overly obstructive and do not require a great deal of zooming.

Awesome focus....Works very well on my Canon 7D Mark II and my Canon 6D....I discovered that it's great for portraiture as well....It's tack sharp, fast focus and an all around nice lens.

So far the images are crisp, clean and with great contrast....A great Macro Lens now with IS....Bought this for my wife who loved her Non IS sigma version but really wanted the IS for hand holding since she didnt want to be carrying the tripod around ALL the time....Seems to be a winner.

Insanely good!...Perfect Lens!...It is not a telephoto lens, but a great lens addition to your DSLR as a primary lens....This one I think is the perfect walkaround lens and the build quality is decent-- not much different from the kit lens....I get some pretty good pictures with this lens, often better than the kit lens the camera came with, but it does have its limitations....Attached to my NEX-6, this provides a package that is just fun to use, especially with the camera set to A (aperture priority).
With built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, this Sony SEL35F18 35mm prime lens helps you achieve crisp, clear images with your compatible Sony NEX E-mount camera. The 2 motors offer quiet and smooth operation for shooting videos.
Love it...It's ok...50mm is a good focal length for portraits though, and this lens can focus on something as close as a foot away from the camera so you can get some good closeups....Given everything else was real-time, including finding and putting on hold the product in stock at the nearest store, it seems reasonable to expect that there should be in-company computer communication that is commensurate with comparative network inventory systems....The revised Canon 50mm is a nice improvement from the prior model - with a larger (and more quiet) focus ring and better auto-focus (along with sharp photos and a great price) - this one lens any photographer should not be without.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Lens: Capture important moments in your life with this standard lens, which works with your compatible Canon DSLR EF-mount camera. A circular aperture with 7 blades helps you add creative background blur.
Love it...Sharp lens...The loss of MTF at f - 1.8 is noticeable, especially once you get a feel for how the lens performs at f - 5.6, but in my opinion, the compromise is perfectly acceptable in a portrait context....The only downside is it is noticably heavier than the Nikon 85mm 1.8 and the Nikon looks/feels way better, though, I do like how this lens balances well with my 5D3....It's a great lens if you are using a canon crop censor camera you can get some sharp headshots with this lens...on fullframe you have more depth to field and sharper images then the crop censor...but it's a all around great lens for the price

The 85mm focal length draws attention to your subject and transforms the background into a soft blur for professional-quality portraits and impeccably detailed close-up shots.
Right out of the box this lens takes amazing pictures, I found myself chasing the dog around the house getting nose and paw pictures with a lot of detail....Even portraits from 20 feet away take awesome pictures with smooth backgrounds....Good lens...The Image stabilization is a bit noisy if your going to take video, but it works well.
