amazing lens for a very modest price

I'll start with the fact that manual lenses currently exist for those who like to focus manually. Saving money it's from another book, however...))) Before buying a manual lens, it is advisable to try manual focusing (in a store or if friends have one) and see if you need it? ... You should also be careful with ultra-fast lenses, they require more attention and accuracy. Difficulties with focusing a manual lens are mainly a problem of the person and not the lens. I consider this lens just as a gift for lovers of manual ultra fast lenses. It's small but hefty, has smooth focusing, beautiful rendering, nice rich colors and very attractive bokeh. And in addition to that , you can try it full frame camera and it will almost cover the frame . I would highly recommend this lens for those who clearly understand what manual optics are and how to use them.

This lens aperture wrenched up to F:2.0 is rather sharp and reliable. Welcome perfect shooting subjects.

Fine for the cost

The picture quality is poor, but then again it depends on how you choose it be used. The softness and mild distortion can be used creatively or to give images a vintage look, and for the cost you shouldn't expect extreme clarity and performance. It's an okay lens if you know what you want to do with it.

Excellent lens for the price!

Only taken it out a couple times but it's a great lens for the price. I've been buying manual lenses recently to try different styles of photography on a budget and this one is probably the best. The aperture ring is smooth with gentle clicks at each stop, I found the focus ring motion to be smooth with a slight resistance that's the right feel. Photo quality (if you can get your subject in focus at f/1.2) is really quite good, very clear and sharp in the center, minimal loss of light or detail in the edges.

Good manual "crash cam" lens

I mistakenly bought this crop-sensor lens for my full-frame camera, so there is vignetting, but it is a very fast 50mm lens, as advertised (closer to 35mm on my full-frame). Nice bokeh when you can manage to strike the balance between blown-out and in-focus. Will need to shoot with higher ISO and/or ND filter to take best advantage. Best for locked-off shots.
