This lens with high aperture and medium perspective is just asking to be used for experiments with depth of field. Its medium focal length makes it great for portraits with richly blurry background and faithful images at short distances. You can also take snapshots and freeze the action around with very short exposure time.
With the technologically advanced successor of MEGA O.I.S., you can take sharp images from edge to edge. It moves the limits of optical stabilisation to a higher degree. It reliably stabilizes even a more shaky hand that would destroy the image without a stabiliser. It also lets you take very sharp images can without a tripod.
You can also use the camera lens to make your own movies. The lens smoothly changes the aperture to prevent sharp jumps in exposure. It also has a quiet drive so there are no unwanted sounds in the movies. What more do you want for your video shoot?
