Solid lens

  • Excerpt: Very good lens for the price. Great lens to fill out your collection. I use it primarily for a medium close and close shot for video interviews. Only thing that would take this lens up a star would be if the focus ring were smoother.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

  • 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

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.

Very Good But Not Perfect

  • Summary: It is an excellent lens but shows chromatic aberration wide open even at the image center. Mostly gone by F4. Extremely sharp at F8 even in the corners. When compared to a nikon 16-85 zoom at 85 mm and F8: this lens is slightly sharper in the center and much better in the corners (the zoom has a large amount of lateral chromatic aberration in the corners).

performs as advertised

  • Excerpt: Tested it out at Mt. Rainier. On a crystal-clear day I could resolve climbers on the Emmons Glacier from 11 kilometers (Nikon D800E, tripod). The lens is just right for that "slightly better than being there" look I try for. The minimal vignetting makes panorama stitching a breeze. Only complaint I have is that f16 is the smallest aperature.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good Close-focus On D800, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: F32 Would Be Nice

  • Excerpt: This lens is amazing. The AF is a little slow sometimes, but I like to shoot Manual anyways. The depth of field that this lens provides makes me look like a good photographer.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Great Value

  • Excerpt: A great value for the price. Optically, its a big upgrade from the non D AF version of the same lens i previously had - especialy at wide apertures. The lightwieghtness is great, but somewhat scary.. I am concerened about the durability of this lens and its response to even small hits. Focusing is quite, fast and accurate. Lens diameter is a bit too large for my taste. overall a great lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Fast smooth focusing, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Durability, Weak Casing
