    Cons: Difficult to mount if you have large hands, no manual aperture settings, lens caps too small and expensive to replace

    Pros: Ultra fast focusing, very good in low light, Very Very light, great IQ. handle's flare very well

    Summary: My all time Favorite, even though its focal length on crop sensoc is around 62mm, I find it very useful for indoor shooting especially when there's not much light available.
