comment:Absolutely amazing lens. I just got it recently, and was unsure how much I was going to
use it as I never have used primes much before. However, it has truly impressed me.
The colours are superb as is the sharpness. No other lens I have can match it - the
50/1.7 being the only one in the same league. If you can find one, go for it. It's
worth it.
