Ok for the price, but soft below f4

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens when I bought my D600. The kit lens that came with my D600 is sharper than this lens is. I shoot fashion, beauty and portraits and when I use this lens I usually shoot at 1.8-2.8. Unfortunately, it's not sharp when opened up that wide.
  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: This isn't a great lens by any stretch of imagination. People writing positive reviews do a disservice to the vendor because many of these lenses will be returned. My guess positive reviews caused by several factors.
  • Pros: cheap
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Very Poor Image Quality

Fails above f9

  • Excerpt: This could make a great walk-around, but I can't use mine. If I stop down (f9, f11 etc) I get a blue circle in the middle of the shot. Sent it back to Nikon and they say this is the way they are made.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in bright light

Manual use only lens

  • Excerpt: If you like a lens that you can do all the focus on then you would like this one.. I thought that this was the new one that auto focus for you. I'm not happy with it because it was not a auto focus,but the lens is ok for manual use only.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

  • Summary: I don't know why so many people rave about this lens. Perhaps it's a quality control issue, but I've been extremely disappointed with my copy. I was hoping for a reasonably sharp prime lens, but this lens is soft - even compared to my 18-70 zoom.
  • Pros: Low price
  • Cons: Soft, Very poor build quality, No lens case supplied, Slow focussing, Poor colour reproduction and contrast
