Excerpt: This lens is perfect for catching photos of kiddos. They turn out just beautiful! It fit my Nikon D3200 amazingly. Ive had no issues with it. It also showed up earlier then expected which was awesome! Thanks so much for an amazing product!
Excerpt: I am a novice at photography, but I love this lens. It gives crystal clear images and works great with my Nikon D5300. this lens has forced me to get to know my camera better in Manual mode. Great buy! Fast shipping too!
Excerpt: I bought this for use on my D7100. At $117 it is a steal. It focuses quickly, and gives very sharp images. On a crop sensor camera, the field of view is just a little wider than an 85mm on a full frame. With the 35mm 1.8 that gives a view almost as wide as a 50mm on a full frame camera, these two lenses cover the mid-range primes at bargain prices. What's not to like.
Excerpt: I bought this lens for my D3300 knowing it would not auto focus on this camera (which I prefer). The exposure functions all work great. The sharpness of this lens is so much better than the kit lens, it makes this camera really excel. On this camera it shoots like a 75mm lens which i find nice for nature shots between wide andge and macro images.
Summary: When you balance the function, quality and price of this lens it's hard to come down anywhere other than this being a great piece of glass. Keep in mind it's a 50mm so you need to be pretty close but for portraits, kids, pets or other similar subjects it's great. I've used it recently for some concerts in otherwise dark clubs and at 1.8 if is plenty fast enough. No real drawbacks.
