    Only complaint is the lens hood is too loose as there is no lock to secure it.

    As compared to most other 50mm options, the depth of field isolation at a wide-open aperture is somehow smoother and ever so slightly wider than with others - which means i can isolate a model's face, but keep both eyes and nose in focus - impossible to do with most 50s - i'm always forced to choose which will be slightly out of focus, and this lens lets me get just enough breathing room to produce some stunning portraits, even though most of us don't think of a 50 as a portrait lens much of the time.

    I might of had a bad lens, but only sometimes when i had it on autofocus it would sometimes not be able to focus on anything i was seeing through my view finder.

    The one drawback is a lack of weather-sealing on the mount, which is not a dealbreaker.
