one of those must-haves, ya know?
June 06, 2011
It's noisy, and it has cheap-looking shiny plastic. It's a bit flimsy, doesn't have the internal SWM, doesn't have VR, doesn't have zoom capabilities, doesn't have "M/A" --- who cares. I toss it around as if it were putty (well, not really, but you get the picture). You buy this lens for its creative potential -- it really brings out the SLR qualities and characteristics you may be aiming for. I use it a lot for abstract type shots, but I heard it makes a great portrait lens. It's sharp, it's fast, it's compact, it's light, it's affordable -- the 50-mil is one of those must-haves.
