Excerpt: I have to say I wasn't sure about getting the cheaper of the two "nifty fifties", but this lens hasnt let me down. I like having the aperture ring on the lens as well. Sure it feels a little cheaper, but it has indistinguishable quality from the gelded model (and it's way cheaper and lighter!
Pros: cheap, Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: If you don't own this, or one of the more expensive 50mm versions, then you are missing out. This one is primarily made of plastic. Very cheap feeling, but what did you expect. The photos themselves turn out fantastic. A quick lens and easy go to for portraits.
Summary: Really nice quality photos! My room is very dark and normally when I take photos, they tend to be really dark and unappealing. With this lens, it really does make all the difference in color and clarity wise!! Definitely recommend.
Excerpt: I used it all weekend with no issues. I wish it had come with a hood and a good cap for the lens mount side but I like the lens so far. It does make some vignetting but I kinds like that and my photo editing software can correct it if I don't want it.
Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens on my Nikon D750 full frame camera. The results this lens gives for general and landscape photography on this camera are incredible. I was going to say incredible for the price, but really the results are as good as any lens I've used, and I've used plenty from both Canon and Nikon.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: Nifty fifty, one point eight D version! This lens is small, fast, and fun to shoot with. Sharpness is there, and wide open bokeh is nice and isolates subjects from backgrounds well. For better bokeh and seperation, go to 85 or 200+ mm, but for 50mm, this lens is versitle and great!
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
