ownership:I own this lens
compared to:
price paid:100 USD (used mint)
positive:great size
great color
great bokeh
ood for indoors/ low light
negative:could probably be smaller, has that front hood area that isn't needed. the hood part that can be pulled out seems cheap and more of a joke than a hood.
comment:Haven't had this lens too long but so far I have really enjoyed it. Bought it with a maxxum 7000 and it was totally worth the money.
