Excerpt: Use it as a short portrait tele with a 7100. Back in the film days a 85 1.8 was always in my bag. This kind of lens, almost symmetrical in design, is very sharp and well corrected. I feel speed is not a big deal compared to a 1.4 especially considering the difference in cost.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: A sharp clear lens for relatively cheap - only thing it lacks is an internal motor (there is a more expensive model with the motor if your body needs it). There is basically no good excuse not to have this lens, unless you already have better glass.
Excerpt: This lens works well with my nikon d3100 even w/o the AF. I use this on just about any subject. AF would be nice though, but for the price, I don't mind doing it old school. The focus ring is smooth, It did not take me long to learn to focus manually. A great lens to bring on travels, as it is light-weight.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, High Quality Good Price, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Not Bulkyheavy, Rugged
Excerpt: Beautiful, fast lens at a decent price! As a photo teacher, I am always looking for good, sturdy products that fit within out budget. This fits every bill! Adorama has amazing customer service and is incredibly reliable.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Light, compact , low light handling and super sharp lens. A little bit noisier than the AF-S model, but costs much less. An xcellent bargain lens. Strongly recommended. It is on my D800/700 when I do not have the 24-70 F2.8 on my camera.
Pros: Bargain Value, Compact, Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: Takes nice clear pictures and offers great depth of field. I bought this camera for portraits and am very happy with it. One thing to note and this is not a negative, but you want to make sure you read the description clearly before purchase. I have a Nikon D5000 and AF is disabled for this camera and some others. The lens aperture ring must also be set to f/22 and then you use the camera's aperture settings.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: I'm not a highly skilled photographer but the lens and the DSLR allow to look far better of a photographer than I really am. I got it to get better bokeh effect in close up shots. It's doing the job as I would expect it to do.
Summary: its an excellent lens for low light environment, gives excellent portrait photos... due to lack of zoom it makes teh photographer more creative while choosing the best position to take the photo
