Great lens but...

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens. Its well built, produces great focus transition, renders colors well and creates images with character. The 58mm is a pleasing perspective. However when paired with my D810 it does not produce clinically sharp images on a pixel level.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

If the shoe fits....

25 September 2015
  • Excerpt: I won't get as long winded as I usually do when writing lens reviews. This is a controversial lens for certain and exactly what drew my attention to it. If you shoot for arts sake and prefer a "film like" look to your photos, and have the coin, then buy with the confidence of getting a truly...

Perfect for portraits!

  • Summary: This is an amazing lens. I was wondering if I want to buy it. I had the 50mm 1.4G, then 50mm 1.8G, but I didn't like their sharpness on d800 series. This 58mm is slightly sharper than its small cousins, but it gives you 8 extra mm and way better bokeh.

  • Summary: Absolutely incredible lens. I had the 50mm F1.4 but this 58mm blows it out of the water in terms of sharpness and picture quality. Not really sure how but it does. Price is steep but worth it for any professional or enthusiast.

Don't buy into the hype, there is nothing special about this lens.

  • Summary: This lens is a sham. It is Nikon's attempt to fill a marketing void left by not having a professional 50mm lens to compete with Canon. The first thing you will notice upon inspection of this lens is that it is light; super light.

Average product - not recommended.

  • Excerpt: Surprised how bad this is in comparison with my 85mm f/1.4G Nikon lens. I highly recommend saving your money and getting the 50mm 1.4G. Also surprised at the build quality. Feels hollow.
  • Cons: Build Quality, Price

  • Summary: Okay, I really did quite of bit of studying on this lens, read about what seemed to be a hundred reviews, you tube videos. Spoke to fellow photographers, and finally after about 3 weeks took the plunge. I bought this lens for special photography, specially people portraits, for indoor and outdoor.

Look no further for wedding photography

Noinker, B&H Photo
14 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens for wedding photography. I must say I had the urge to sell it a few times but I'm glad I didn't. The more I used this lens at weddings, the more I loved it. This lens takes time getting used to. You must have a professional body to have the best AF system, IMHO.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
