Couldn't ask for better
Every shot with this darn lens just screams, "beauty!" I can't take a bad shot with it... "Click!" Perfect. "Click!" Perfect. Mix this with it's compact form factor, quick AF, lack of CA or distiortion, and it's got amazing color reproduction and just enough punchy contrast to boot! Geez, this lens is could be worth twice its price (but it doesn't come with a hood, so no deal!). If I had to reach for something bad to say about this lens, it really is the lack of a hood! That's just weird... But not worth taking a star. Amazing job from the guys in blue!

Makes for great portrait shots.
I have been using this me we for about 6 months. It has given me some really great portrait shots of our daughter. The pictures are very bright and sharp. Great to be able to shoot without the flash get great colours. With the holiday season it has been perfect for lowlight pictures with the tree. Now if only I could get my daughter to sit still longer I'd get even more!! Definitely recommend this lens.

My Favorite Lens Right Now
This is my favorite lens right now! Super fast and razor sharp! The photos are beautiful and I could not be a happier customer with this purchase. This lens gets tremendous work during family photo shoots, and the results really show compared to other non-portrait lenses. This lens really can separate the subject at the lowest f 1.8, and the sharpness is quite good. The lens can be used at f 1.8 quite often due to the inherent sharpness present. A must have for prime lens professionals.

Outstanding lens, decent build quality
The 45mm 1.8 is a wonderful, compact, short telephoto lens. In my experience, it is sharp starting right from f/1.8, focuses relatively quickly, and produces beautiful results. The 1.8 aperture really comes in handy when isolating the subject from the background, especially in portraits. An amazing lens! The build quality is good - not the great solid metal construction like some of the other lenses in the system, but a good plastic housing. It would also be great if it came with the lens hood instead of having it be separate. My only gripes with the lens are the 37mm filter size - most of my other lenses take 46mm filters, so it makes it harder to share between them.

Allmost perfect little lens
This lens is very light and feel an touch is plastic. At least the lens mount is metal. It also doesn't have the 'Manual' focus ring which is a pity. It's also a pity that this lens does not come with a lens hood. Anyhow once you have this little one one your camera you might not want to remove it. Very nice for portrait work - sharp at 1.8 with a decent bokeh. Fast Autofocus with only little hunting in low light and only very few out-of-focus pics.
