comment:We'll this was my first purchase of a prime.
I got it in a mint condition and was so, so happy.
And í was amazed by it pictures, no dissapointment what so ever
Had to get used to it a bit but it makes remarkeble quality pics.
Fantastic as a portrait and street lens for photographing people.
If you come across one of them for a small som, just get it. It won't dissapoint you.
