User profile: Amateur

Cons: Got it as used unit at fairly cheap price. What can I say....It's cheap and it's sharp ! Needless to say much about it. Get one and u'll know!

Pros: 1) F1.8 (Slower than its more expensive sibling 50mm F1.4 but doesn't made much difference afterall). 2) Plasticky built quality (i don't mind, really).

Summary: I'm very happy with this lens. It perform well and so worth of what I paid for. Yes I'd mentioned about the plasticky built but anyhow, I don't mind because it is the end result that I'm aiming for and yes, this DT50mm F1.8 is a sharp one and it won't break your bank for sure!
