  • Excerpt: Nice looking lens but that's where it stopped. Focus was not consistent in autofocus mode. In manual mode the focus ring would have resistance and binding at both ends of travel. Never could get clear focus in either mode even when mounted on a tripod with flash.

  • Excerpt: Since my daughter shoots a DX consumer body, I was excited by the prospect of a Nikon prime lens that she could use, too - and that would have auto-focus capability on her camera. So, I bought this newer 1.4G version as a replacement for my Nikon 50mm 1.4D, that I use on my FX body.

  • Excerpt: Unfortunately i received a bad copy of this lens; focusing was inconsistent at various distances (regardless of aperture setting). My results were confirmed by a certified repair facility and even then they did not know exactly what the issue was.

  • Excerpt: I ordered this lens as soon as it was released. The first copy I received simply would not focus. It was really soft. I returned it for a second copy. I kept this to have the length, but it is fundamentally dissapointing. The focus takes more than a second to go full range.

  • Excerpt: I Bought this version refurbished from Adorama. It initially worked wonderfully, but within three months the autofocus failed. It took me awhile to figure out the problem because it was at first intermittent. And I had to go through the camera not shooting at all at times.
