Great portrait lens, new to photography

New photographer in SF, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Highly recommended for portrait photos and low light conditions for higher exposure. If you are new to photography and thinking maybe you should go with a 1.8 for a portrait lens, I would recommend considering this lens. It's a bit extra (but still in a reasonable price range for 1.4s and much cheaper than 1.2s), but the difference in portrait photo quality is well worth the price.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

50mm f/1.4G

  • Excerpt: Great lens. VERY SMALL and lightweight. Tiny tiny tiny compared to other pro lenses in the 1.4G line up, such as the 35 and 85. Everyone should have a nifty 50, and the 1.4 is the only way to go.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Good Price / Performance ratio

  • Excerpt: I read a lot of reviews about this lens prior to purchasing it. The image quality was praised highly, which I can confirm (using it on a Nikon D800) and the main concern was slow focusing. The slow focus is not very noticeable when you are within a similar range to the subject but if you change it drastically you have to wait before the subject is sharp again.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Great short portrait lens!

  • Excerpt: I'll preface this review by saying that the lens I received had a bit of a front focusing issue, so my thoughts about the lens' performance will only encompass what I was able to see while using it in live view to get correct focus. Sharpness wide open is not too impressive, but it's never so soft as to be unusable. Nice to see a depth of field scale, but it's extremely small, and only has f/16 and f/11 on it, so it's unfortunately not very useful.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
