"Get prime, get quality""There's always a question in the beginner's mind as to whether they should buy a prime lens or a zoom lens. The answer I've gotten from asking many people is both. And so I bought this lens. It is amazing. It produces extremely sharp images and produces a very fuzzy background inaccessible by zoom lens cameras. It has all the regular features found on Sony lenses (AF/MF switch, etc...). It might require manual zoom (ie: my legs!) BUT I think its a great camera to allow one to access their own capacities that they were unaware of. It teaches me (more everyday!) about lighting, direction, and expressing emotions in my photography. And I should know its a good teacher because I am one! '=D"
