    Great lense for up close picture. This lense works great for up close portraits or food pictures. Brought to thailand to use for food photos, worked great.

    This is the sharpest lense have ever used. If largest aperture is not one of your requirements this is the best lense you could get for crop/full sensor

    Great portrait lens that is lightweight with super sharp images for a steal of a price! I use as a travel lens also, it is very versatile and easy to slip into a pocket if I need to switch to a zoom lens.

    With the APS-C sensor this lens becomes more of a 55mm lens or the equivalent of the 50mm lens for full frame cameras. It is a sharp lens and a great value for the price on either form of Canon DSLR.

    The pictures come out really clear. My sister is a beginner photographer and was using a different lens. When I purchased this one I couldn't wait to see what all she could do with lens, I was really impressed with the way her pictures looked. It's a really good lens and for the price too.

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

    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.

    For an inexpensive lens you can carry in your pocket, this thing makes great sharp pictures. Also you won't get stares and gawkers the way you do with a large white L lens. Very stealthy for candids and street photography.
