    "Love it...Fast AF...Fastest Lens available at this Price...I recommend to only use this for portraits and landscape because you have to be a good distance from subject, if close to subject you will lose a lot of what you're looking for in a photo such as background and what your trying to tell the viewer on what you captured"

    "Small sharp...Great quality...PS I own the 56mm f1.2, 35mm f1.4 and the 16mm f1.4 the first two are much older than this one and still focused faster....When it comes to a 23MM(35mm equivalent in full frame terms) I need a fast reliable autofocus lens because in my case the 35MM lens is the one lens that helps me to narrate stories with a wider angle of view without introducing much distortion."

    "Love it...Love it....If you bought the Nikon D5500 kit with the 18-55mm lens you really need this unless you need the faster f-stop which gives a shallow depth of field for that perfect portrait....It's difficult if you're trying to take a pic of people unless you have ample room to move back as it's a 50mm fixed but for what I use it for a lot (products, cars, etc as well as videos) it's great!"
