Nikon 50mm f1.8 AF Lens

Ian Hooi, REVIEW STREAM
23 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I’ve recently accquired this lens for use with my Nikon D40. The Nikon 50mm f1.8 is the cheapest lens in the Nikon lineup, but it is also one of the sharpest. The lens is able to shoot at apertures ranging from f1.8 to f22, and with a minimum focusing distance of 0.5m. At f1.8 the depth of field gets extremely shallow, especially when shooting about 1.5 to 0.5 meters from your subject, so you have to be very precise with your focusing, if your camera is like mine, and...

  • Summary: Will outperform every other lens in your bag, for the cost of a few rolls of film. BUY ONE!
  • Pros: Outstanding sharpness, color and contrast. Very small and light. CHEAP!!!
  • Cons: Smallish focusing ring. E-series looks and feels cheap, especially 1st model.

Perfect manual focus lens

8 March 2014
  • Excerpt: "I bought this lens when I was just starting to figure out how to use my dslr, and it was not difficult to figure out. It is perfect for portraits and nature shots as well. It does not focus well on things less than 5 inches away. However, I believe you can shoot macro with it. While this "human eye" lens does not zoom, you can get close enough to get a decent nature shot, and when editing the photo you can zoom in quite far before the quality becomes ...
  • Pros: clarity, bokeh, focus
  • Cons: MF only

A brilliant lens for portraits

EmPFree, Ciao
2 February 2014
  • Excerpt: "I bought this because it was so cheap compared to other wide aperture lenses. It's great for portraits and gives you full control of depth of field. I've got nothing but stunning results from this lens- pin sharp area of focus with a nice bokeh (blurring of background) when I want it. It's also good for shooting in low light conditions as it can let a lot of light in due to being able to go down to f/1.8. You can get lenses that go to lower f-stops, ...
  • Pros: good control of depth of field, produces high quality photos, value for money
  • Cons: Can only go down to f/1 . 8

Excellent lens to have in your collection

  • Excerpt: "...and low light conditions for Nikon AF DSLR camera bodies. It has no focusing motor of its own and as such it won't work in a Nikon D40, D60, D3000 series, but works like on charm on Nikons that can drive external lenses like the D200,D300. Do check lens compatability. Focusing is quick, it is light, feels a bit plasticky but not cheap and produces really superb results. Not only is it excellent in low light but generally, it just gets more details. ...
  • Pros: Cheap, solid, light, amazing picture quality, great detail, low light ability .
  • Cons: No lens motor

2nd Time.

Hernani Canete Jr, FutureShop
23 October 2013
  • Summary: I regret selling my first one after only months of using it. It's because I already have the 35mm 1.8G and I am kinda confuse and never thought that I would need it for portraits ( coz my interest is landscape photography ). Good thing that they went on sale again. This is one lens that every photographer needs.
