This is the perfect "walk around" lens for my Nikon D800

Summary: This is the perfect "walk around" lens for my Nikon D800. It's sturdy, focus is sharp, and it's small. It's great for landscapes and street photography. And when I shoot weddings, it's the lens I use along with a 135mm Nikon DC lens. Perfect for crowds and dance floor shots. If you shoot on an FX camera and love prime lenses, this one is a must have.
Excerpt: This is a great (and economical) lens. I wasn't ready to drop $ for a lens so I nervously picked this out and have been pleasantly surprised. My shots have been sharp and without much distortion. Definitely a great purchase.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: Excellent lens. Well built. Tack sharp. Some distortion at the edges, easily corrected in post. With a slight crop, photos closely approximate what you see with naked eyes in terms of field of view (I am shooting with a cropped sensor). This lens does not have a focus motor, so it will not autofocus on all cameras. Do your research or ask me if you are not sure about this. I highly recommend adding this lens to your bag.
Summary: A perfect lens for the photographer who shoots in different modes. It is an old style lens that is adapted to work with new automatic mode. The real value is when you shoot manual, or shutter priority, because you have real manual lens control, rather than playing around with buttons and menu items like with digital lenses that were designed to have little or no real hands-on manual controls.
Excerpt: I started out with a kit lens and found myself leaving it set to 24mm and decided to give this prime a try. I'm very glad I did. For landscapes, night skies, and even street photography, it's almost perfect. It is extremely sharp and has a hard infinity focus stop that makes it great for night skies. It is light and easy to cary all day. I wish every lens were this good.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
