Summary: Ive had the lens before and it's one of my favorites, and the one i received is great Except.... the UV filter that was one this lens was a giant pain in the A.. to take off. Couldn't tell if it was the lens ring or the filter grooves that were bad but once off I was glad to find it was the filter grooves bad. I was very irritated at how over-tight it was put on. The lens almost went back but its good.
Great, inexpensive portrait lens with a beautiful bokeh

Summary: This is a great, inexpensive option if you're looking for an excellent portrait lens. It's 85mm so you'll need a little room between you and your subjects. Adjust your F-stop to the lowest setting and you'll get that fantastic bokeh in your photos (that's when your subject is in-focus and the background blurred.) This is a very fast, autofocus lens. You'll need a Nikon camera with a built-in lens motor drive. there is no manual focus.
Get one you will love it. Nikon is stopping production.

Summary: What can I say....... Get one and enjoy taking portraits. Beautiful results. Nikon is stopping production of this beautiful lens and going to promote the G lens. But that would mean no aperture control in case of old manual cameras, also the G lens is more plastic than metal. This one is built like a tank.
Summary: Very good lens! Fast focus because of F1.8. You must have nikon with AF built in the body in order to use Autofocus with this lens. Nice picture quality. I recomment this for portraits from distance and night shots. Very good product. A Lens every photographer must have.
Summary: I bought this lens for portraits and realized quickly that the lens was also perfect for taking pictures during basketball season. I love a fixed lens, and this one is one of the best. SUPER glad I bought it.
Summary: This is an absolutely fantastic lens. For the price, it's unstoppable. From the length and brightness of the lens optics, one could infer how beautiful the photos are that this hunk of glass produces. Its also really solid, although it has a plastic exterior, the build quality is strong, with metal interiors. Keep in mind, when auto-focusing, the focus ring does rotate. Great for portraiture and mini-telephoto, it's a pretty strong addition to my collection.
Summary: I am replacing a 70-200 2.8 with this, reluctantly. However, I am pleased with the results and quality. Very sturdy build, which I like. I feel like I could drop it and not damage it. Much lighter than a telephoto lens with a wide aperture. A tad on the noisy side.
