On one hand it's $60 for 35mm.
On other hand terrible chromatic aberration and way too soft... Duh Frown

When it comes to glass, don't skimp if you want quality.

I typically agree, but for $60 vs $300-500, even if it's 90% of performance, very hard to pass.

True words. But for those on a budget, it's fine. I'm in for one, thanks OP.

you obviously are an amateur...putting crap glass on any body will ruin all your shots...which begs the question, what is the point? might as well stick with your crappy kit lens.

I would rather have this than the 18-55 kit lenses that come on cameras now days. At least you get a constant 2.0 aperture which is nice in low light. Especially if you have a camera that doesn't have great iso performance

Duh... I know a thing or two 'bout glass.
But when you r on tight budget... Well, there is nothing much you can do but look for used or no-name. And both r 50/50 chance game Mad

you could buy a nikon or canon 35m prime lenses for less than $300...in photography speak, that is cheap...spending $62 on a crap lens is just plain stupid...you will be embarrassed by your shots when presenting to friends and family...

tight budget? quality 35m or 50m prime lenses cost less than $300...how much tighter do you need to get?

what is so terrible about the kit lens? poor low light performance with high minimum f-stop...but that's it? good image quality and clarity? i just don't know why everyone poopoos on the kit lens

Im returning the 50mm prime as I type this. It was ok the first day but the second day the autofocus stopped working. I was on the fence about buying this brand and I should of went with my gut.

If my crappy kit lens got close to f2.0 I would. The choice is between spending about $250 on a new-ish discontinued Canon 35mm F2.0 which has many flaws itself (hence it being discontinued) or $63 on this guy. The "right" thing to do would be to get the Canon 35mm F2.0 IS which is $550, a full 9 times the price.

Is this lens anywhere comparable to the Canon 35mm F2.0 IS? No its not. But is it good enough to learn shallow DOF shooting on for the price of a nice meal for two? Yep sure is.

Finally, I humbly refer you to this review which makes pretty much all the right points on why you should or shouldnt buy this lens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_sEM5wE3Ko

buying quality glass is a long term if not a lifetime investment that will return lifetime of memories captured...not only that, quality glass retains its value for decades to come....i guess it depends whether you viewing buying glass as an expense or an investment...
