Haven't got a chance to go outdoors for field test with this lens yet, but have already done more than 1000 clicks indoors. Images from this lens are great, wide aperture (widest I may use is 2.5 though) and fast focus.
It's being used with a Nikon D7100 and after a little more use, I will upload a photo or two and add more to my review.
The pro's can correct me if I am wrong or leave something out, but if you're new to photography that means a couple things. Practically speaking if you don't have a camera that has a built in motor and you have the aperture at 1.8, you can get great focusing effects on your portraits, it just might not be focused on the spot you intended, especially at first. But with digital cameras nowadays you can snap away and get better with time. I would say the other main point is that at 1.8 you can shoot in much lower light situations. So for that night time portrait in B&W, you can't go wrong!
Overall, if you have purchased a camera with a kit lens (usually 18-55) this could be a really good second lens to begin building your collection. It's relatively cheap, performs well and doesn't take a huge amount of room in your bag. Plus, who doesn't appreciate a great portrait photo without having to go into software for adding that soft focus in the background effect. It comes built into this lens!
It has a number of applications though mainly intended, I think, for portraits. I only listed a couple of the things I used it for. A pro photographer once told me the way to get better is with practice. "Just get out there and shoot" he said. Well, with this lens you will want to! A quality lens at a great price!
I had originally bought a used one off of amazon, but the focus ring was sticky so I bought the new one after returning that and it turns like butter ;-)
note: if you have a nikon d5200 or any cam that uses AF-S lenses, this lens will only do power aperture, you have to manual focus. also, i don't know if it's just my camera, but it won't let me manual aperture - it forces me to lock it at the highest aperture so it can do it electronically.
It's the second lens I've bought and I was debating between this and another one. I'm so glad I chose this one because it's absolutely amazing.
