comment:My favourite lens... It's a pity that it is a fixed lense... I can't remember how may times i thought "ah sh*** i can't see every thing. Do I change my lens? Erf no I will stick the pictures later with autopano..."

APS-C DSLR transformed it in a fabulous portrait lens and aperture is ideal to take photo inside. A must have !!!
