Summary: This is a scam. The lens I got does not have a manual and auto setting on the lens, does not look like the picture, and does not work with my camera. I purchased an auto focus DX lens, which will work with a Nikon 5100 like the picture. There is no motor in the lens, so the camera body I have does not work. It is 9 days past the so called return date, so I am out $178.00 for nothing. The lens does not focus very well manually at all.
Summary: I attempted to replace a 20 year old Nikon F.1.4 50mm [...] Instead, I bought the F1.8. It was a big mistake. The lens was not nearly as sharp as my 20 year old until stopped down to at least F4, which makes it worthless for available light photography. B&H was terrific. It took the lens back and gave a full credit toward a new F1.4. That lens is reasonably sharp at f1.4 and tack sharp at F2.0. I use it with my Nikon D300. I also have an outstanding Nikon 24-70 F 2.8.
Cons: Blurry Focus, Needs to be stopped down, Weak Casing
Summary: I bought this lens for my Nikon D60 but when I brought it home I realized, it will not autofocus. I had to return it for this reason. I don't know how the lens works on other cameras, but just make sure if you have a D40 OR D60, this lens WILL NOT AUTOFOCUS.
Summary: I bought this lens with the expectation that it really was for all SLR cameras, but when I tried to use the higher f/stops, it would not lock or even let me take the photo, sending me an error message, that it needed to be locked. When I looked at the manual it stated, that it was compatible with most Nikon DSLR cameras, except for (Nikon D5000, D3000, D60, D40, F3AF), the box even indicates that this lens is for D-Series Nikon cameras.
