BAD distortion - not ideal for pro use.

  • Excerpt: Since my daughter shoots a DX consumer body, I was excited by the prospect of a Nikon prime lens that she could use, too - and that would have auto-focus capability on her camera. So, I bought this newer 1.4G version as a replacement for my Nikon 50mm 1.4D, that I use on my FX body.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Did Not Meet My Expectations

ardent travel writer, B&H Photo
23 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Very disappointed. Did not meet my expectations or needs. It restricted my ability for a wider shot, and the quality of the picture. Received better of both from my 18-105. Will request an authorization to return and refund.

Difficult to use

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens because my other lens is and 18-200mm. I thought it would be great to have a prime lens as an alternative. I mostly take portraits. Almost every picture I took was blury. It just wouldn't focus properly. It could be operator error, but I don't think so. I ended up sending it back.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

Waaaay Sloooow, had to return

  • Excerpt: We were so excited to purchase this lens, but let down when it arrived. The auto focus was so slow it was impossible to get a sharp image, while shooting children or any moving object. It may be great for still photography where you have time to manually focus.
  • Pros: Durable
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

  • Summary: I have owned the 50mm 1.8d, 1.8g & 1.4g, and this is by far the worst of them all.I am a semi pro wedding photographer, and use a D700 as my main camera. I upgraded though the 50mm range until I reached the 1.4g.
  • Pros: Focus Hunts, Heavy Vignetting, Lightweight, Poor Low Light Focusing, Soft Wide Open
  • Cons: Focus Hunts, Heavy Vignetting, Poor low light focusing, Soft wide open

  • Excerpt: Пишу по личному опыту. 50mm 1.4G AF-S + D3100 - ужасно. Объектив никогда не фокусируется, все время мимо. Отвозил в Nikon просил сделать юстировку вместе с фотоаппаратом. Сказали проблем с объективом не обнаружено, фотоаппарат что-то на словах делали. В итоге фотосессия на выходных полный провал.
  • Pros: Боке
  • Cons: Объектив не знает, что такое фокус
