Wasatch SummitsGreat prime lens.

Voted 5/5

This is an excellent little prime for those wanting a good amount of depth and bokeh. The lens captures light excellently. The build quality is ok, though it seems the body is made of plastic. This does keep the weight very minimal overall. Found this lens works exceptionally well for close up photography.
