Excerpt: I love this lens. Fast primes are great, and my 35mm f/1.8 lens is great as a "normal" lens for my DX-frame D7200. The "nifty 50" (which functions as a "normal" lens for the full-frame sensors) makes for a beautiful short tele on dx frames.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Summary: The lens gives really sharp pictures and the autofocus is fast and accurate on my Nikon D300s. There is a crop factor due to my DX sensor, but that was aready expected. It's a great value for the price it costs.
Excerpt: This was my first prime lens. Worth the money, it's sharp and clear and gives me finer pictures than the standard kit lens that came with my Nikon. It was a little hard getting use to since I'm new to Manuel focus but once I got the hang out it all my pics have came out great.
Excerpt: After using an entry-level DSLR for a while, I grew tired of using the poor quality kit lens that comes with it, at least when it comes to shooting in poor lighting conditions. This 50mm lens works amazingly well in low light conditions.
A great less-expensive alternative to the pricier AF-S version.

Summary: Works perfectly with my D7100. No need to get the more expensive AF-S version unless you need the focus override. And yes, I realize I have no warranty. At the price I paid, it was just as cheap as buying a used lens.
Excerpt: I have the Nikon D3200 with the kit lense. Without sufficient lighting, I was having to bump up the ISO a lot, and would get noise; especially if the subject were far away-I just stopped shooting distance. I shoot mostly video. I bought this lense, which was at a fair price, and wow!
