Wow - Super sharp wide open at 2.8

  • Excerpt: I use this on my D7100 and rest assured, you can shoot this all day long at 2.8 and get amazing sharpness and very little chromatic aberrations. I was blown away by how sharp it was wide open. Sure it gets even sharper at 5.6 or 8, but who needs it?!

Excellent Prime

  • Excerpt: I love this lens. Very light, compact, well built and I love the way it isolates the subject. Brought a used copy and had it serviced by Nikon as images were a bit blurry, probably due to dirty rear aperture blades. Since getting it back I've had no problems. This is a great lens.

  • Summary: Truly a legendary lens, going back to its first incarnation as a manual lens in the 1970s. A friend who worked as a photojournalist in the 70s and 80s said it was one of his main go-to lenses, as it was sharp enough wide open to produce usable images at night without flash, and sharp enough in the...

Great Value

  • Excerpt: This is an old style lens and it shows. I feel that is a positive, but some people may think it a negative. There is no image stabilization and no autofocus motor.

Great lens! Got mine used!

  • Excerpt: This lens is great. I use it on a D7100 and found that it seems the sharpest at f/4-f/8. f/2.8 has a tiny bit of CA but it's easy to fix in Lightroom. Since I got this lens, I haven't taken it off of my camera. My 18-200mm is gathering dust now, unless I need the wide end of the lens.
