Still not used to its lightness. Tested out in various events conveniently in the same location to figure out its strengths. All shots were at F/2.4 with iso at the minimal speed i needed.

Alienware Event. For this, 1/80 @iso800 was the lowest iso i could go.

Concert Performance. For this, 1/125 at iso800 was very decent.




Aggressive Crop. Quite okay actually.


from what i observe, my copy is a tad back focusing but nothing Focus Adjustment can`t solve tomorrow. Will see how it does in fast sports this weekend.

Highly recommend this lens as well to those who wants to try out primes.
Had it for awhile.
Cheap, light, colorful and its good.
Personally liked the colors it produces.

having tested out this lens...found several situations where it works well and some where its just enough. Then there are also times when this lens works decently only if using certain settings. Quite the journey of discovery for this lens.

The fact is that its so light yet does so much. For $2xx, its a damn good buy.



Combined with the 50mm f/1.4, gives a lot of flexibility when shooting.

weighing in with my pic.

this is one of the first photos taken with the Plastic Wonder that made me see how the plastic wonder is a cheaper way to getting good IQ at a reasonable price...

Reportage, for some reason quite a number of your images don't look particularly sharp when compared to the other images posted on this thread.
Given that your lens is new, perhaps it could be your camera.
