This is a lens I really love. It is very versatile and I use it a lot for textural work as it has excellent sharpness and very nice blur textures. Its a lightweight lens and I use it on canon eos m so it makes for a very compact system and gives me a 160mm lens equivalent at 2.8 and as a very light equivalent. Manual focus is very smooth and love the IQ and color rendition
Excellent lens. Mine has a big scratch on the rear element and it's still very sharp wide open. Beautiful bokeh too.
What I love about this lens is that it's the size of a normal lens, but gives you twice the reach. It doesn't make your camera look intimidating, and you can do street photography without having to get super close, and without being noticed.
It's probably not the lens you'd reach for for artificial lighting. You would probably want a 50mm f/1.4 for that, for the extra speed. And it's not something you'd use indoors, unless the room is very large. But most of my shooting does not fall into those categories, and this is one of my favorites.
My ideal cheap/compact 3 lens FD kit is a 24mm f/2.8, a 50mm f/1.4 and this lens.
