    "LOve it...Nice kit...The portrait lense is fantastic....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)."
