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

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

Not nearly as sharp as kit zoom. Yuck!

Jim in Central New York, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Horribly blurry at f1.8. Really blurry at f2.8. Not until f4 is there some improvement. Sharpness remains inferior to every other modern lens I own whatever the f-stop. I use Nikon D-90 and D-300. This lens is good ONLY for hoops games in dark gyms where f2.8 is still too darn dark. No weddings, no landscapes, no artistic available-light. Hype about its sharpness is wrong.

Awful light falloff f/1.8

Gary, B&H Photo
14 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Light falloff starting just outside the center and increasing to the edges at f/1.8 is excessive and surprising. You can't blame the Chinese manufacturer for this optical design flaw. I agree that Nikon should pull it from the market to protect their reputation.
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

very disappointed

bk, B&H Photo
17 May 2011
  • Excerpt: I wanted to purchase a 50mm lens that would be compatible with my Nikon.I was not told at the time of purchase that the lens was NOT compatible with the auto focus feature of my camera, which is important to me. I returned the lens. My eyesight is somewhat dependent on the auto focus but if you don't need this feature than the lens is fine in all other regards.
