The image quality is also very good for the price. This certainly won't compare with more expensive lenses but for the price it's certainly a tremendous value.
If you need a cheap lens that will allow you to shoot at night or do some photography with a very shallow depth of field and you don't want to spend a ton this is certainly a must buy.
I was a bit worried when I first saw it because it does feel a little cheap, but it takes seriously amazing pictures! For the price, you cannot complain. I use it mainly to take portrait pictures, you can take portrait pictures without a flash indoors.
Most of my baby pictures have been taken with this lens and I seriously don't regret my purchase.
I recently purchased the canon 60mm usm macro lens that double's up as a portrait lens, but I still find myself using this one for indoor situation because its much faster and easier to use.
The only down size is that the focus ring is a little flimsy and hard to use, so I mainly use it on auto focus. The auto focus is really fast on this lens, even under low light situations.
I have this mounted to my Canon Rebel T3i (aka EOS 600D) with a crop sensor.
This lens acts as an 80mm lens due to the crop sensor, however for the subjects I'm taking pictures of, this is actually a plus. I won't be standing on anyone's toes to take a photo.
The build quality is very nice, for plastic.
The only minus is that it doesn't feel weather sealed at all, however my camera body also isn't weather sealed.
The pictures speak for themselves. You really can't buy a cheaper lens for this outstanding quality.
I've attached a photo taken from this lens. I took the photo from .. 2-3 feet away, however that is ok because Tank, my dog isn't too fond of the big DSLR camera in his face. ;)

RETURNED. The focus was rough to operate and the auto focus function was very loud when operating. The lens would shut down the camera body when attempting to take a shot to the... Read morePublished 20 days ago by Amazon Customer
Pretty sharp, great first prime lens with a big aperture. AF hunts a bit with my 70D but not too bad. Decent low light lens, will cost hundreds more to beat it. Read morePublished 25 days ago by mikepos
Either we received a faulty lens or this is not Canon product. We've returned it and will re-order a replacement in hopes we got a dud. The connectors were faulty, we believe.Published 25 days ago by Deborah Turner-Davis
