The lens has a wide aperture that allows more light to enter the camera and create a blurred background effect. It is a manual focus lens, which means you have to adjust the focus ring yourself to get the desired sharpness. The lens was manufactured in the past, but you can still find it as a used option. The build quality of the lens is sturdy and durable, making it a reliable choice for photographers. The resolution of the lens is high, allowing you to capture fine details in your photos. If you are looking for an alternative to this lens, there are plenty of options available in the market.
