    "LOve it...Good buy...In my limited use so far, I find that f/2.8 can still achieve the Bokeh effect quite nicely as well but with a more gradual blur, and seems to be the sweet spot for macro shots....If used with an APS-C sensor, the zoom on this lens is an effective 80mm, making it adequate for many macro shots, but also functional enough for most portraits, although for the latter, I would prefer a 40mm lens (although the 40mm lens isn't as wide of an aperture at f/2.8 so I would not recommend it over the 50mm if you can only buy one)."

    "Love it...Have fun...Can focus really close (30cm) for unusual effects....For me this lens is useful for candid and street photography, it makes a camera like the 5D very un-obtrusive and non threatening, my professional cameras look like slightly oversized consumer superzooms with this lens on them and people go back to acting naturally much more quickly than when a giant white lens is pointed at them."
