Excerpt: Prime lens that works nicely as a walk-around due to exceptional image quality. Lightweight but feels solid. Quick accurate focus with D610. A winner for hand-held portraits, if slightly too long for small crowded scenes. Take a few steps back! Have not tried it for video yet.Great value.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I purchased this lens to use as a portrait lens, especially in low light conditions, and in order to get good bokeh.This is one of the sharpest lenses that Nikon has in their stable. I also have their 35mm 1.8G, and 50mm 1.8G. All are great!
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: This lens is a lightweight, sharp lens with a wonderful bokeh. I use this on my Nikon D750 for portraits and performance photography. Sometimes I use it with my street photography. This lens is a terrific buy. B&H is the best!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Lens was decentered. I sent it in for Nikon service under warranty and it came back just as decentered as when I sent it in. This was an awful Nikon experience. I wasted money on the lens, and I wasted a portion of the money that I spent on two trips where I used the lens
Excerpt: I use this lens with my D7100. It is razor sharp even wide open but I did see some chromatic aberration at f/1.8 as expected for a lens in this class. Other than that colors and contrast are well reproduced and beautiful boke. It is perfect for portraits even on a DX body, you just need to step back a bit further from your subject. Overall I love this lens along with my 35mm f/1.8 wich is more of a walk around lens but also great for portraits.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
