Yep bought this lens because I want to ge into portrait photography a bit more. I need to practice a lot but so far I love this lens.
Yes, I'm also thinking that this lens is great for candid shots of kids and pets and whatnot. A stealthy lens for a crop sensor especially. Cant wait to go out to the woods to do some portrait work with it too. It does feel like looking through binoculars after being so used to the 30mm FL..
Who needs zooms?

PS. Have you noticed, that you can use the lens hood that came with the 30mm Sigma, on this lens too?
