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
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...
Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
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.
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.

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
