9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp. Creamy bokeh. Excellent color rendition and contrasts. Literally perfect portrait lens. Built like a tank. Built in lens hood.Sometimes get CAs. Required a little AF fine tuning. Heavy. So sharp it gets diffraction pretty easily after f5.6. Clunky built in lens hood. Pricey.
Hands down the best portrait lens ever. Colors, contrasts, sharpness, DOF blurry bits are literally perfect.reviewed April 2nd, 2012 (purchased for $800)
On DX it was a bit tight but the perfect length on FX in my opinion. Distortion free. It costs near 1000 bucks but it performs well. Great results.
I would never part with this lens. Its like a loved one in the family. Cherished. Highly recommended for portrait shoots. Once in awhile the lens hood catches so gotta be aware of that. Metal construction. Feels strong but heavy. Other than that, cant praise it enough.
