so good....good buy...The blur effect is awesome!!...This is a great lower priced option for the 50mm, if you have the budget, spend the extar money for the f1/4 50mm lens, but this one is excellent for a beginner.

Nice lens...Love it....I am enjoying the effect this lens gives me when I do close-up photography of children in public school classrooms....I can not use this lens as often wide open as I would like to due to color fringing and other issues associated with wide open shooting, however it is just as good the 1.2L or the 1.8 when stopped down beyond 1.8.

The best....great item...Love the blur effect I get!...Canon did a great job of packing a lot of glass (nine elements in seven groups) into a decent form factor of 3" diameter by 2.8" long; even with the hood mounted, this lens provides a fraction of the intimidation factor of, for instance, the 70-200mm f - 2.8L.

Good zoom....very nice...Great for sneaking up on wildlife....or a great alternative to actually walking closer to other things that you would not have to sneak up on if you are just lazy....I am very pleased with the ease of use (it does not require me to know anything more or operate the camera any differently than the standard lens) and the image quality has been great in the limited opportunities I have had to use it to date.

Great one....Great len....It has about the same "great photo quality in low light" as the 50mm, but it also gives me "more room" for a picture as well, I do not have to move in and out of my object so much as the 50mm lens....The benefits of a prime are that it does not sacrifice picture quality in order to allow for zoom capabilities and that it will force you to physically move in order to take the best possible picture.

Good one...Great lens...good zoom, I can also use the extra 2 times zoom or clear image zoom In the camera, the camera extends the zoom, cleans the image and you got extra zoom from the camera, works well, I used for some moon shots already....I am in love with this lens which I use with my Sony A6000 Camera - It is very easy to mount in a flash and is exactly what I need to capture those once in a lifetime shots.

Good Lens...Nice lens...Since these cameras have the cropped sensor, the 50mm lens acts as if it was an 80mm lens, which is good for portrait work, but is too long a lens for using indoors like a birthday party, or in a museum....It's a great lense if your moving on from the lense cameras usually come with no flaws overall & great purchase for what you pay for.
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.
The Best....PRO LENS...Dont let anyone tell you that the L series lenses are not worth the extra money or theres no difference to them because there lying.This lens shoots such crisp images and focuses so fast, its awesome for sports which I have used for baseball pictures and to see the dirt particles from a player sliding into a base is just incredible.It also shoots super in low light condition and when paired with the 1.4 extender,youve got quite a lens....With the fact I was rarely shooting at f - 1.8 or f - 2, dropping to a max aperture of f - 2.8 and a minimum focal length of 70mm was a fair tradeoff for this lens's range and image stabilization.

Love it!...Great item!...I was able to get some excellent shots of my son at his high school graduation without a tripod with this VR lens and they came out extremely sharp....Later that night I took the lens to a High School Football game and in the first half, the sun was still up and the pictures were once again awesome.
