Gil Lopez "G.L.", Amazon

  • 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

Perfect lens for people photographers

  • Summary: I think Nikon had wedding and portrait photographers in mind when they created this lens. I say this because the lens's ability to create that dreamy colors and bokeh usually associated with wedding photos.

Great lens! I was hesitant because of the price ...

Weston C Photographer, Amazon
22 January 2015
  • Summary: Great lens! I was hesitant because of the price point but the focal range, color rendering and design make it well worth the dough. As a full-time wedding photographer holding a camera (even with a rapid strap) puts a lot of strain on my fingers/wrist.

Simply Amazing.

Speedgraphic, B&H Photo
19 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Sharpness freaks need not apply, this one ain't for you. Unbelievable rendering at 1.4 and 2.0, and if you're stopping down further than that, it simply preforms as you would expect from a pro lens, sharp with good contrast.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Expensive

Good specialty lens

arthury, B&H Photo
6 January 2015
  • Excerpt: It is a specialty lens, made primarily for shooting people. It's a low contrast lens so shooting people in high contrast situations is great. Not a landscape or nature lens: color is muted and contrast is too low.
  • Pros: Bokeh Is As Promised, It Is A People Lens, Light Very Light
  • Cons: Contrast Is Not High, Focusing Speed Is Below, Sharpness Is Questionable

Hans Wurst, B&H Photo
26 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Nope. This thing fits right in line with Nikon's outstanding 24, 35 & 85mm f1.4G lenses(IMHO). Enough said!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus
