Excerpt: This is a fantastic lens to get for a crop sensor. I have it on my D7100 and I find it a perfect lens for just about any situation. The focal length on this is perfect for that "take a picture of what yous see" kind of feeling. Its wide enough to capture great landscape shots, and if you take a step forward or even just extend your arms, you are at the same distance as a 50mm 1.8.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Really great prime lens for beginners like me. I purchased this lens for my Nikon D5100 because of the reviews and recommendations I have read online. Once I started using this lens I noticed great detail,color and sharpens in my photos. Way better in comparisons to the stock lens that came with my Nikon. Highly recommend if you already know how to use the manual settings in your camera!
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I've had this lens for a few weeks now and it has completely replaced the stock lens on my Nikon D3100. I've so far photographed architecturural details, smallish (not macro) found still-life, and scenery (including fireworks) with excellent results. From here on out, when I walk out the door with my camera slung over my shoulder, this is the lens that will be ready to go. This being said, if I specifically go out for macro or scenery I would use different lenses.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Short In Length
