    Very sharp. Excellent optics. Nice contrast. Works well on dual pixel AF. Fast AF. Smooth focus ring. Solid built. Comes with hood.
    A bit heavy than a 50mm nifty fifty. No in-body manual override. No IS.

    I bought this lens because i wanted mid focal length on apsc camera; wider than 50mm and quality like the latest sigma. I also have sigma 18-35mm f1.8 which also gives the same performance at 30mm but it's too heavy and not practical to carry around. Great for anything like portrait, food photography, travel and landscape. Macro distance is average 30cm. It takes 52mm diameter filter.

    I end up using this lens 95% of the time.
    This is a really good lens and a keeper.
