Love it...good buy...takes great pictures for any type of photographer!...It gives a very nicely effect for blurry backgrounds (don't know the right terminology), and also it forces me to move to get the right spot to get everything in frame.

Good deal...I love it...Lightweight and takes sharp pictures....It performed great wide open @2.8 and did even better @4 I use it all the time for everything from "macro" (with extension) to portraits of my boys.
Capture stunning images of wide perspectives with this Canon 9522B002 EF-S wide-angle lens that features an aspheric lens element for high image quality from the center to the edges. The circular, 7-blade aperture delivers soft backgrounds.
Great lense...Fast motor....Amazing image quality!...The quality and the extra light you get from this lense , makes it worth for me expending the extra money , very easy to use and makes your DSLR look like a more regular camera instead of having a huge lense when you are being a tourist , love the rear glare (main reason why I got it) even taking regular pictures works great!
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.
Great lens!...No regrets...It is super sharp....It's built very good, not cheap feeling to it, the size is great, and the speed is even better, I got it mainly for night shoots and I am very happy with it, even for day time shootings the speed is great.

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.
Clear pics...I love it....PRICED RIGHT, GREAT IMAGE QUALITY...I had the 50mm 1.8 nifty fifty and so far I'd choose the 40mm over the 50mm since the 50mm at 1.8 doesn't produce as sharp pictures as the 40mm at 2.8....I got this to go with the recent cannon camera package I purchased on black Friday.

Awesome Lens...I love it...The picture quality is incredible....I have the minolta nifty fifty f1.7 and the A mount adapter and that one is still good too, but on the a6000, it's a little to narrow.

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.
Love it!...Great !...Lightest, smallest Nikon FX lens is sharp...The only downsides that I have with it is that I have to be too close to my subjects for macros, while I have my extension tubes attached, and it will not auto focus on my camera, the Nikon D3300 (which really isn't a downside for me; as I will only use manual focus, but just about every other photographer that I know insists on having the option available).
Nikon AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D Standard Lens: The wide-open aperture of this versatile Nikon lens allows you to capture photos in most situations without a flash. 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.
Awesome lens...great lense...It takes super sharp photos....Shooting from f1.2 to f1.8 is tricky, you can not be lazy, move the focus points, manually focus if you have to, but if you are careful you can pull it off for insane DOF and creamy bokeh.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Standard Lens: This Canon 50mm lens has an unusually large maximum aperture so you can get detailed pictures even in low light and without needing a flash. It is a perfect tool for basic portraits and scenic shots, especially at night.
Very nice lens...Super sharp...Sharp and clear...The corners are not as good as the FE 55mm but not too bad and much better than any of my legacy 28mm lens (Canon FD, Olympus OM, Konica and Takumar).
