positive:Great size and weight. Love the colors and sharpness. Awesome for portraits.
comment:Love the color rendition and sharpness of this lens. I use it primarily for portrait work and the speed is key. Bokeh is nice and creamy. Also great for macro detail shots. Ability to manual focus on auto mode works well with the focus check lv on my 580. No complaints here, well worth the money.
