As the title says. Definitely not for action shots. Takes a few seconds to focus hunt and lock on,

La calidad de los cristales es muy buena, tiene un buen control de las aberraciones cromaticas. El precio justifica la construccion del lente y todo lo que ofrece tanto par una camara SONY con sensor APS-C como para el Full Frame

Great for learning

This lens is great for learning as it forces you to move and be creative as it has a fixed focal length. After being out of the game for a while, this was a good lens for me to start back up with.

Manual focus......

First off, this lens makes great starter prime lens coming from kit zooms and such. However, even the kit lenses that I have used have better focusing than this. Overall, not a terrible lens for the price just don't expect good focus performance.

Great lens!
