    I like this lens for its 2.8 aperture and pancake style build. Takes sharp pictures wide open. A good lens to walk around with for general street photography.

    This lens is pretty darn nice for the money you're paying. Way better than the kit lens that comes with your camera. Lets in a lot of light and takes some really nice pictures.

    I purchased this lens to go with the Canon SL1 camera to keep on the camera for all purpose photography. It is a thin lens that takes excellent photos and keeps this compact camera small.

    The price on this was too good to pass up. Its a great lens to use for all types of shots. It doesn't zoom so that takes getting use to but the quality of the pictures is worth it!

    I use my Canon 70D for interior video often and needed a lens that offered good results in low light situations. This lens works very well and am please with its performance.

    Wonderful camera. Read many reviews before pulling the trigger. Super sharp photos (best at 7.1 aperture) but quality falls up at higher numbers.

    Adding the standard lens to my camera improved my ability to capture higher quality photos without the heft of a larger lens. Great for traveling and handy to have when needed.

    Seriously, for beginners, this is a great investment. Good to use with the Canon 70d as well (those into videos). Perfect for "true to eye" (not skewed) images.

    I was looking for a fixed focal length lense for a reasonable price. Considered the nifty fifty but decided on this for its wider angle of view. Nice sharp images.

    I have been looking at this lens for sometime and once I saw it went on sale for $149.99 I had to jump on it. Was so worth it though, makes carrying your camera so much easier!

    I use it with Canon 6D Mk.II and very happy with the lens. It's light, compact and sharp. Highly recommended for full frame Canon bodies.

    The lens are tiny and the retail price is low. They are hard to use being that they are not zoom lens. I am a beginner so I may not know what i am talking about.

    Love the lens, takes great quality pictures! It does seem very similar to my 50mm f1.8 in almost every aspect. Almost. Nonetheless, I like it.

    An excellent lens for general purpose use. Looked at other more expensive fixed focal length lenses and found this to be a great purchase for both quality and value.
