At 85mm, it’s field of view - especially on a small sensor - can be frustrating. It’s not as verdsatile as the 30mm 1.4 (in other words, get that first). But at the price, it’s an excellent lens, ideal for people like me who don’t want to spend too much but taking good looking photos with a wide aperture. Great for portraits and street photography alike. [...] [...] It’s a reasonably light and convenient lens, and it’s quietness helps too for taking photos without people noticing too much.

Have been using Tamron 18-200, but can see definite benefits in using a prime and this seems like the best for my wallet, especially with the ability to take indoor flashless pictures (guess who normally ends up doing the office photos). Thanks for taking the trouble to show us thecomparison. Colin Your samples are yet more confirmation that this is the lens for me.

I must remember to poke you about lens selection at some point, I’m already interested in more, but I’m resisting for now… :)
