Summary: My eyes had a heart attack when I opened the box that this lens came in. It can't be used! It looks factory new. Not one scratch, dent or dink. The glass is spotless. The good people at 'Blue Penn' missed the rating of this lens by not listing it as 'used like new'.
Excerpt: I'm using this lens since 2003...& really it had & still a workhorse...about 98% of the time I'm uding this lens either on my D700, D200 or D90...the reason is very logical as 50mm projects a veiw that's equal to the Human eye...yes DX in format it's 75mm due crop fractor..
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have never been a fan of 50 mm lens on 35 mm format cameras and therefore always steered towards other focal lengths in a prime lens. But I wanted medium focal length prime lens for digital and and something that was fast, and not too expensive. for a variety of shoot environments.
Pros: Fast, Light weight, Small, Very Useable Focal Length
Excerpt: For people who are deciding between the 1.8D and this 1.4D, I say get this one if budget is not an issue. Besides the extra fraction of a stop, which can make a difference in bokeh softness (not really much in low-light shooting ability, since 1.8 is real), you will also get a more consistent manual...
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
