Possibly one of the most versatile lenses you can get! A very good all-rounder in terms of being able to capture portrait, some landscape, street photography and cinema/video production. Plus with the big aperture, you can get great depth of field and the larger amount of light it lets in is great for low light situations. Because this lens is so widely produced, they have been able to provide good optical quality at a low price point. Generally I've only found expensive Cine lenses that can beat it on semi-noticeable image quality but the price to performance can't beat this lens. Definitely a must have in any photographers arsenal.
