Excerpt: I love this lens. Fast primes are great, and my 35mm f/1.8 lens is great as a "normal" lens for my DX-frame D7200. The "nifty 50" (which functions as a "normal" lens for the full-frame sensors) makes for a beautiful short tele on dx frames.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Summary: The lens gives really sharp pictures and the autofocus is fast and accurate on my Nikon D300s. There is a crop factor due to my DX sensor, but that was aready expected. It's a great value for the price it costs.
Summary: My review is solely based on the my experience with this lens. I know my camera body (D5300) has no internal motor, so I knew going in that I would have to manually focus this lens. No big deal. That has no weight in my review. I'm finding Nikkor glass to be hit or miss. This lens feels nice.
Excerpt: This was my first prime lens. Worth the money, it's sharp and clear and gives me finer pictures than the standard kit lens that came with my Nikon. It was a little hard getting use to since I'm new to Manuel focus but once I got the hang out it all my pics have came out great.
Excerpt: keep in mind there are defiantly better lenses out there but if your just starting out and are tired of the low quality that you get from that kit lens that comes with your nikon d3200 then this is a good deal for only around $ you get very good quality images.
Excerpt: I bought this as my first lens to use on my nikon d750, first when I unboxed I noticed that it is very hard to attach to the body. It is soft from 1.8 - 2.5. I mainly use it at f/3.2 and it delivers good enough images. It has nice bokeh. And most of the time is good in low light.
Pros: Nice Bokeh, Non Accurate Auto Focus, Sharp
Cons: Badly Built, Difficult to Clean, Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus, Tough To Attach
