Quick and silent AF
Well balanced of weight

comment:Very good lens among any other 50mm's.
I highly recommend this lens even if the prince is more expensive than any rivals.
Smaller than f2.8, it shows us gentle images. Lens aberration works well especially for portraits.
Larger than f2.8, You can see the supreme sharpness from the view of full pixel size on your PC.
