    "Love it...Love it!...Great size for travel but lacking contrast...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 gem...Not bad...Great for travel due to its light weight....The kit pancake is a great lens out of the box, but this lens really allows for some creative shots with great background separation and still bright enough for some decent bokeh."

    "LOve it...Good buy...Great for traveling, light and easy to use....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...Love it!...Love the portability for travel....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."
