My favorite lens, ever.

JB, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: First off, this lens is a beautifully made, and you'll love the heavy, sturdy metal construction. The D series lenses are a little louder than the G series, but it's still less loud than the typical shutter, so I wouldn't let the absence of a "silent wave" motor throw you. One of my favorite times using this lens was when I was in the ultra-dark basement of Webster Hall in NYC snapping a performance.

What's the difference: G lens & D lens?

OC Mike, B&H Photo
26 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Hey there, It just occurred to me that most people reading this will want to know the answer to one very simple question: G versus D? I own both. I love both. I bought both from B&H, and I highly recommend them. As you know, the D was called the King of Bokeh. Hail the King! So, there's a hint that it's a darned good lens. Let's go! Focus speed: D can hunt but I never lost a shot, the G is faster. Center focus: very, very shallow DOF w/both.Ever slightly sharper in G.

crazy amazing portrait lens!!!

bajang, B&H Photo
17 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I own a nikkor 50 1.4g but it's nothing compared to this master lens in terms of build quality, sharpness, contrast and clarity! Since I started using this lens every picture in the album I post socially gets tons of likes! The only time im going to prefer my 50mm I guess is when I know my subject will be constantly moving or if I don't have enough room to work with.
