    "Got my hands on a spare lens for my Canon. Its 85mm lens with stunning visability. My Canon was getting a bit old, in my eyes. This lens has been a breath of fresh air. Its not super cheap but its far less then spending for a whole new camera. I keep this lens in my bag at all times. You can easily screw it on and start snaping. "
