Cheap as chips and a great low light performer. It's not the superfast f/1.4 but to get f/1.8 for a fiver a day you won't go far wrong. If you have the freedom to move relative to your subject, in a lot of circumstances this lens could be all you need. Travel light, shoot cheap and get great results.
