    "Very Easy to Use...I am a novice still getting use to the whole photography thing but I definitely noticed a big difference in the quality of pictures from my lens that came with my camera...This lens is awesome for closeup, I m beginners so I need little time like 20-30 sec to focus lens correctly to take photo, if you are planning out door trip like going NY or DC to day trip this lens might not be good fit as this is good fit for closeup and portrait"

    "Price is a steal...Good for the price...It might be a little lacking for pros or very experienced amateur photographers, but if you're still a relatively casual photographer like myself, this is a huge step up from the kit lens, and combined with the 50mm 1.8 and a decent zoom lens, it's a great option to get a nice range of focal lengths covered...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"

    "A must have lens...My wife loves it...I received some good advice from a friend regarding a fixed 50mm lens--the F/1.4 on a 50mm lens is what he told me to look for, and the pictures are fantastic (using a Canon EOS Rebel T3I)...The quality and the extra light you get from this lense , makes it worth for me expending the extra money , very easy to use and makes your DSLR look like a more regular camera instead of having a huge lense when you are being a tourist , love the rear glare (main reason why I got it) even taking regular pictures works great"
