Move On

Hoogie, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I wanted a 50mm for landscapes and low light shooting.Before you buy this lens google Nikon 50mm 1.8 purple spot and you will find endless comments on why Nikon should recall this lens. With the lens anywhere near wide open you will end up with a purple spot in the center of your picture. It can be removed but so can Nikon from my camera use.
  • Pros: Cost
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Purple Spot In Pictures

LENS CAPS AND OTHER ITEMS MISSING.

  • Summary: Many items are missing! No front or rear lens cap. I don't know how to store the lens without them. No cap keeper, either. The lens hood doesn't fit at all and doesn't look like as shown on the package. The most unforgivable is that the lens caps are missing, which might imply they are not brand new.

  • Summary: This lens will NOT auto focus with the D3000. I purchased this particular lens and realized that I needed the 50mm f/1.8G. I gave a 1star rating not because the lens is not a good lens, but because it does not work for the d3000 body.

  • Summary: Maybe my order was not processed correctly. But if this is a wide angle lens I don't get it. Focus was an issue, zoom out is the only way I could use it.

Misleading product description

Lbuck, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: THIS LENS DOES NOT WORK WITH THE D3100! The KIT can be used but who would pay this much for a kit you could buy separately. I purchased this because I wanted the new lens and the bonus of having a kit sounded great. Problem is this lens is not for the D3100 so I had to ship it back (at my own expense). Company did refund me promptly which I was thankful for but the way this is advertised is misleading.

Does not work on D5100

Try once, B&H Photo
5 April 2013
  • Excerpt: After comparing 50mm options I opted for this model for price and performance but it does not deliver what was expected. Does not autofocus, and manually has to be set in the "locked" position. Even then the focus is erratic, sometimes on the subject, sometimes in the background. I am planning to go personally to the store to learn if I am doing something wrong (doubt it since even mounting it feels like forcing the lens into the camera), in the meantime I would not...
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Does Not Focus, Tough To Attach
