What a Lens!

  • Excerpt: SUPER SHARP lens! Perfect for studio head shots and outdoor full length portraits! This is THE portrait lens for Nikon shooters. Very quick and quiet focus as well as being light weight. A little soft at 1.8, but by 2.8 it is super sharp. This is my number one portrait lens on FX bodies.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: Fast, sharp, lightweight, great bokeh. If you've read up on this lens, then you know what to expect. It's not built like a tank but it feels solid enough. Awesome lens for the money!

Super all around lens, will not be disappointed in this lens

  • Summary: Great all around lens, no need for the f1.4 unless you can determine exactly why you need f1.4 and will use it enough in your shots to justify the cost. Some days I use this as my walk around lens and it is great, causes one to do better compositions since you have to move and not zoom the lens. This lens will stand up to any photo task set before it. Great size and weight, fast zoom, sharp photos.

For the money, it's hard to beat.

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens right before a wedding shoot and used it a few times before the big day. Right away I was amazed at the sharpness and quality of the out of focus elements. On the day of the wedding I ended up using this lens 98% of the day. I couldn't stop admiring the quality it was giving. That being said it let me down on two instances where the autofocus took too long to hunt, which made me miss a candid moment or two.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

  • Excerpt: I am an inexperienced photography enthusiast looking to enhance my skills. I purchased this lens as we are expecting a child and I wanted something to take portraits with. This lens has provided me with outstanding pictures right out of the box without having to know much about how to manipulate it. I can't wait to learn more and really unleash the potential of this lens. Definitely a must have for anyone wanting to do portrait work.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Nice and sharp!

  • Excerpt: I use this lens for portraits in a studio and also for low light shots. Works really nicely for both. Focuses lightning fast, tack sharp, especially at f8-11. I mean you can see every eyelash crystal clear. It's just a really nice lens. I can't imagine benefitting from jumping to the f1.4 version for all that extra money. This is a great value lens.

Unbeatable clarity

Brian O'Brien, B&H Photo
2 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I've had this lens for about six months now and have used it on a d5300, d7100, d800, and d810. While it showed great results with the crop frame cameras, it is when paired with the crazy resolution of the 800 and 810 that it really starts to shine. The colors are true, distortion is minimal (if even noticeable), the depth of field is plenty narrow at 1.8, the bokeh is very pleasant, and the clarity is amazing, especially considering the price tag.
