    Number one is that the lens is sharp, and two is that it is inexpensive for such a high quality lens design and three, since it is a fast lens (the f/1.8 describes the largest opening aperture), one can shoot in low light or shooting at a high shutter speed in bright sunlight. As an example, if I were standing a few feet away from a batter, and had nerves of steel (considering a baseball coming at me at 80 mile/hour) and I had perfect reflex so that I could take an instaneous photo, I could produce photos like this all day long with this lens set at 1/8000 second and f/1.8: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/18658/snap shots/55867/

    Congratulations on getting the lens, but what is so special about it? I ask as a know-nothing when it comes to cameras and lenses. I do know what f/1.8 means and that 1.8 is a very low number.
