Pros

Cons

  • Super slow focus and hardly ever got the focus right and it felt it's stuck and can't pass certain range until I manually twist the focus ring to adjust that stuck up area.Andy

    I got this lens so that I could shoot at night, and it has become one of my favorites. It's great for portraits and low light settings. All of the pictures I've taken with it have come out amazing.

    My wife and I were expecting a newborn so I got this for her birthday. The images are stunning for portraits even in low light. This is a must have for family portraits. I am a hobby photographer and don't have a lot of time to edit so I want pictures that look great off the camera.

    Excellent lens for portraits and low light. the 1.4 nails it. This is a good lens on my D7100. I had the 1.8 and needed a 1.4 for even better low light situations.

    This lens is a great value and is great for very low light conditions. The small depth-of-field is optimal for portraits.
