  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great in Low Light, Nice Bokeh

  • Summary: It's a fast lens, good for indoor events. The focus is not very sharp, maybe I did not get the best one. It's OK on D90, but very disappoiting on D70s.

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: LOVED this lens, but I had to return it because it was simply too expensive for my budget.Super sharp. Great in low light. Not quite the all purpose lens that 1.4 50mm is, but for cramped interiors and night work, it's hard to beat.
  • Pros: Built like a tank, Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Low light superstar, Nice Bokeh, Pro consruction, Rugged, Strong Construction, Super sharp
  • Cons: Too expensive for me

sharp in low light but slow focus

Johnny Q, B&H Photo
18 April 2012
  • Excerpt: A sharp lens that allows you to capture good low light pictures, but a little slow without internal focusing. I picked this over 35mm due to extra-low dispersion and have not noticed significant chromatic aberration. The lens hood could be better and is pretty cheap considering the high cost.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Love it

  • Excerpt: I've been on a prime kick lately, and recently added this and the Nikon 85mm F1.4G lenses to my arsenal. Compared to the 85mm, performance at F1.4 isn't quite as good, but it's good enough (that's the only downside of this lens from what I can tell).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

Glad I rented it first

  • Summary: Saved me $2,200!! Anyways, I thought it was a very good lens. I did not think it was outstanding. What keeps it from getting 5 stars with me? Well, that auto focus that you can call 'leisurely' at best.
