Excerpt: Trust me. You need a 35mm prime. I first used it for headshots and they were amazing. Then started using it for everyday photography. The f1.8 is what makes all the difference, gives it an amazing separation between subject and background. I had just bought a d3300 with a 18-55 and 70-300mm lens.
Excerpt: Lightweight & compact, this (35mm equivalent) standard lens does its job well. I also had purchased the Sigma 30mm 1.4 Art lens for Nikon APS-C cameras and was pretty happy but for almost half the price (and with CA being much less of an issue) this lens is a no-brainer.
Excerpt: I use this lens often for video and photos. If you have a Nikon camera you need a prime and this is the most popular distance. The 1.4's are better in low light and speed but tor $ this light little lens is worth its weight.
Excerpt: This is a good lens to replace or supplement the kit lenses that come with Nikon cams. It produces some extremely sharp, beautiful images and is a step up for sure. For a mostly plastic lens it feels fairly sturdy too.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: Como lente basico siempre utilice el de 50mm, este lo reemplaza perfectamente y por supuesto es de mucha mas calidad que el 50mm que viene con el body, rapido, bastante luminoso, lo utilizo mucho para paisajes, tanto de dia como al atardecer con poca luz.
Excerpt: I bought this lens to get better at macro photography and I am thoroughly impressed at the large aperture getting accurate color when I backlit the rose petals. I took this out to the field to take some photographs of a sunset and was impressed by the full capture of the lens on a DX camera.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
