    "It's ok...So good...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....I would recommend getting this lens over more expensive models if you travel a lot and really need to optimize your space or there is a possibility of damage, you need a quick lens that won't weigh you down, or you really want to break into the portrait scene."

    "Not Bad...Love it...So yes CA is annoying and this lens does have an issue with this in a lot of situations and I removed a star solely because of this, but it also does a lot right and for the price literally, cannot be beat....I love that because it's a prime it has the ability to have f 1.8 and nice bokeh.It is pretty decent on pricing but what draws me back is that sometimes in the photos the subject is only somewhat in focus and what I mean by that is that even though the subject is same distance the edges of the subject at 1.8 can sometimes be a little blurred."
