Excerpt: I have been shooting with one of my father's old 50mm lens - manually. It was great but I couldn't use the light meter in my camera so I bought the AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.4G. What I discovered was why every photographer shooting street shots and special occations should know. This lens is wonderful! It captures plenty of light when you need it. It blurs the background really well on close-up shots and is a pleasure to work with. Go get it!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
