This has a dubious nature. It's a great toy lense to get creative juices flowing, but it's also meant for Full Frame cameras.

Meaning it's meant to be 50mm as a focal length with bokeh meant for f/5.6 and a smaller sweet spot so more is out of focus.... using it on an APS-C crop sensor makes it semi telephoto at 75mm, bokeh of f/8.5 and a larger sweet spot... creating less dramatic separation of out of focus areas.

Basically its sold to those new to photography and likely on a cropped frame camera, but excels on a full frame camera for best effect.

Still for 40 bucks there is fun to be had using either camera system. Just wanted to make those aware.
