positive:wonderful dreamy bokeh,3D feel, fast AF, light weight, great colors !

comment:bought and used this lens for wedding assignments, the results are great ! the f1.4 creates the feel of isolation in the pictures, 3D feel effect obtained, this is a great lens for a wedding photographer.

was initially offered a Minolta copy but picked up Sony instead for warranty and support, such a good lens so must buy it with Sony support !
