so good...Love it....Great Lens for portraits...the lens is nice but takes much better outdoor then indoor shots which is a little upsetting since I bought it for my indoor shots but overall it seems to be a good lens just not as awesome I had heard it was.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Lens: Capture important moments in your life with this standard lens, which works with your compatible Canon DSLR EF-mount camera. A circular aperture with 7 blades helps you add creative background blur.
A Must Have...great item...This is a great portrait lens....This is a great lens especially for taking portraits and because of it's low f stop it works well in lower lighting even without a flash as long as it's not too low and people hold still for a sec.
Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens: Get sharp, clear photos with this Canon medium telephoto lens that delivers vibrant color and clarity with fast, quiet focusing. The 85mm focal length draws attention to your subject and transforms the background into a soft blur for professional-quality portraits and impeccably detailed close-up shots.
Love it!...A Must Have...Great for portraits and low light...I recently got into DSLR filmmaking and totally ignored my colleagues' recommendation that I just buy a camera body without the sub-par quality kit lens.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard Lens: This Canon 50mm lens has an unusually large maximum aperture so you can get detailed pictures even in low light without needing a flash. It's excellent for basic portraits and scenic shots, especially at night.
Sharp lens...Great Len....Perfect Portrait and Mid Range Landscape Lens...I'm glad this lens doesn't have VR as the VR system would add weight and with a wide 1.8 aperture I don't see that it would be particularly useful in this application.

Whether you're capturing headshots, wedding photos or nature images, this medium telephoto lens offers all you need for professional results in almost any lighting conditions.
The best...I love it....Best Portrait lens ever...I use this for documentary films and it does great at capturing action and does even better for interviews.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G Standard Lens: Suitable for professional and amateur photographers, this is a great lens for travel, events, portraits and general purpose photography. Capture clear images in dim lighting without a flash with the wide-open aperture. Switch seamlessly from automatic to fine manual focusing so you can ensure every detail is spot on.
Pro level...Fast- f2.8!...Its also a great lens for portraits....I purchased this lens for the Canon Rebel T1I camera and have been very satisfied with the excellent quality of pictures it takes.
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens: Experience a broader range of your DSLR's capabilities with this mid-telephoto macro lens. Image stabilization helps to ensure that your photos are clear even at very close range. Capture fine details with unprecedented clarity.
I love it...Great lens....Lens is great for the portraits...Yes just as good I took pictures with both and returned the Zeiss as it just wasn't any better than the Sony, Buy one you won't be disappointed.
Get a reliable portrait lens for your NEX camera with this Sony 50mm lens. It has a fast aperture of f/1.8 for solid performance under low-light conditions, and it can get in close to your subject — up to 1.5 feet. Add a 49mm filter to your Sony 50mm lens for lens protection and polarization effects.
Very nice bokeh...I love it...It's good for portraits and some scenery....After reading so many strong reviews I bought this prime portrait lens last month from Best Buy for my Sony a6000 and a5100 cameras.
Capture crisp photos with help from this Sony SEL50F18/B 50mm f/1.8 prime lens that is designed for use with most Sony Alpha cameras with an E-mount and features OSS (Optical SteadyShot) image stabilization to help prevent blurring and ghosting.
Awesome lens...Loving it...Family portraits came out great!...The lens is good enough to deserve a well coated UV filter such at the B+W MRC 52mm to avoid glare; the bestbuy cheap UV filters protect the lens but add noticeable glare when shooting toward the sun.

Its versatile features and easy portability make it especially suited for basic travel, portraits and memento shots.

Whatever you're shooting, you'll get consistently sharp results at dusk, dawn or even in dim indoor lighting. Weighing just 5.5 oz., it makes a convenient carry-around lens for shooting stills and video.
Love it!...Great lens...It's definitely great for portrait photography....( I haven't used it at night yet but that's my next project.) The focus is quiet as well, making it nice to use indoors for moments where you don't want to hear the mechanism working.
