    "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...I bought this lens as I wanted to add to my equipment a nice portrait lens but that won't break my bank :-) The lens is very well build and an excellent size to carry anywhere"

    "Real easy to use...Good Lens For DX...Much better than my 18-140mm Kit Lens from Nikon, even though I love my 18-140mm lens, this is way better in Bokeh, and a lot clearer in detail for the same type photo as I compared them myself today when I bought it to make sure, I never bought a Prime Lens before but now I am a believer in them...It's a very good lens to use with the camera that I purchased and I see that is working very very well I love it and I look forward to many years of working with this particular lens it's a very good camera and lens make it just that much better"

    "Price is a steal...Great for close up...It is fine for what it is, I just don't get as much use of it as I thought I would and just end up using my phone when I want to go for something more lightweight...I took it in a trip to Iceland to capture pictures of the northern lights and it was fantastic but I was foolish and did not account for the wind knocking over my tripod and smashing the lens less than a week after I got it"

    "It is fun to use...Best lense I own...I've a fair collection of primes to compare it to, some of which are L glass, and I've got some great L zooms as well; yet for portraits, I inevitably turn to this specific lens as it outperforms everything else I own in the successful shooting methodologies I find myself returning to over and over...I was in the market for a 3rd zoom lens and completely against a fixed focal length lens...after using this lens...it has become my primary lens and I can't wait to buy a second fixed length lens"
