Pros: Price, sharpness, size, nice bokeh

Cons: Sharpness under 2.8, maf, construction

Opinion: It 'probably one of those lenses that anyone approaches photography sooner or later must necessarily buy, but it will become interesting and useful even when you are more experienced (at least for me) .rnThe construction is certainly not the best but remember that the price is around 100 € or little more.rnSurely not my favorite lens is not by chance the use infrequently, but for some sporadic portrait I would say that it is more than enough because the sharpness from 2.8 up is really good and the bokeh ... very pleasant ... rnNon very precise maf, sometimes a little slow and cumbersome, however, the quality-price ratio justifies the success of this lens over the years.rnNon I got to try the new STM version but I suppose it is better especially as regards the maf.

Pros: Price, excellent resolution starting from f.2,8 but usable at TA, size / weight

Cons: Blurry absolutely ugly, but fantastic for those who are used to zooming; huge flare and collapse of contrast to backlight or when light sources frame, all-plastic construction, lack of depth of field, prehistoric autofocus

Opinion: Despite all the faults is a view that I use with pleasure and of which I do not regret the purchase (at the time analog), now there is no more reason to buy it and except if you find it at the price at best price is better orient the purchase towards the new STM version that has been improved in: boken, the AF and the flare for a price that remains super-économico.rnPS: I use it in FULL FRAMErn

Pros: 2.8 sharpness, pleasing blur, pre-historic but effective focus, incredible price quality

Cons: Sharpness below 2.8, almost unusable at 1.8 due to poor sharpness and large vignetting, really slow focus.

Opinion: My first serious lens and true guilty of my passion for photography. Compared to the 18-55 in kit it seems to have another camera. Great as everything to do but vote for portraiture. It does not excel at anything but is really a great lens at a price from a dinner at the restaurant. Purchased 4 or 5 years ago and never again sold back always useful.

Pros: Sharpness, Price

Cons: Materials, Defocused

Opinion: I have had this lens for years and used on entry-level body (1000d), semipro (40d) and FF (5d2), never disappointed. It certainly has its negative aspects, it's a plastic after all, and blur it's a little tough, but I'm challenging to find an optic that has yielded this little bit to the priceless price it's sold. Sharpness is devastating, af is slow and noisy, but it works and is accurate. It is mounted on any sensor. I'm not a 50mm lover on FF, so I sold it but I consider it a must-have for those who are developing passion for photography without spending capital and those on apsc are interested in portraiture.rnrnNote: despite plastic ( Honestly they could have built at least the metal attack), like all the objects, if it's a tough one. The use of manual fire is quite unmanageable for the unhappy focus ring position. RnrnConclusion: you can find many defects in the outside, atThe feeling of fragility that the materials give, the performance of the AF .. but also taken together, the defects are swept away by the incredible optical yield, compactness, weight and especially glass price of undoubted quality.

Pros: Price, weight, opening

Cons: Sharpness under 2.2, autofocus, materials

Opinion: Let's face it: the first two defects, we can also expect them spending less than 100 euro for a lente.rnE the third is clearly also the son of the price, but it is also the reason one of the strengths, the weight absolutely irrisorio.rnConclusione ? I have voted 10, because if we put it all together we want to bet that this affarino (we assemble well on FF) is one of the lenses that if you bought it will remain forever in the kit?
