This lens is excellent if you want soft and blury images. The transitions between sharp and blurred are so nice. Close portraits with a large aperture give a soft and slightly dreamy effect, also perfect for detailed photos in, for example, weddings. The full portraits also get a cool effect when using this lens, soft and sexy bokeh. Landed on aperture 4 or lower on almost all images, as it gave the desired effect. It was a bit difficult to hit on the focus using large aperture with this lens.
