Summary: Really nice quality photos! My room is very dark and normally when I take photos, they tend to be really dark and unappealing. With this lens, it really does make all the difference in color and clarity wise!! Definitely recommend.
Excerpt: I use this lens on my Nikon D750 full frame camera. The results this lens gives for general and landscape photography on this camera are incredible. I was going to say incredible for the price, but really the results are as good as any lens I've used, and I've used plenty from both Canon and Nikon.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: Nifty fifty, one point eight D version! This lens is small, fast, and fun to shoot with. Sharpness is there, and wide open bokeh is nice and isolates subjects from backgrounds well. For better bokeh and seperation, go to 85 or 200+ mm, but for 50mm, this lens is versitle and great!
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
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.
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: 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.
