Strengths:    Cheap. Easy to find. Good construction. Lasts forever. This and a used Pentax SLR for about $40 total will take better pictures than most point and shoots.

Weaknesses:    I would rate the images as fair.

Bottom Line:   
Ok lens. Would be great for teaching kids how to use SLR.

Strengths:    Super inexpensive, very light pretty fast. An incredible value.

Weaknesses:    Slow for a 50mm lens. Not as spectacular as the 1,7 or 1.4 lenses

Bottom Line:   
For the price this is a very good lens, Light weight and relatively sharp even at f2.0.
