Fixed focal-length lenses have an image integrity that zoom lenses struggle to match. Because they feature fewer elements and moving parts, it's easier for them to achieve stunning clarity and sharpness. This lens falls into that category, but what's more, it does so with a light-gathering, dimension-enhancing f/1.8 aperture and a perfect length for portrait photography that's equivalent to 90mm on a 35mm camera. That means close-ups of kids, pets, grandparents and other loved ones that pop off the page, framed print, or screen. It also means shots of things like streetscapes that enhance a sense of space. This is a great choice for your first fixed-length lens, as it lends itself to rewarding experimentation.
