  • 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

Tops on function low on quality

  • Excerpt: This lens was purchased to use as a portrait lens on the D7100. I was able to shoot some great photos and it is fast. The manual override is a nice feature. That said, it does feel cheaply made and it is disappointing that Nikon is having some of their lenses manufactured in China. Most of my lenses have been Sigma which I find high quality. Though this lens works fine, I do worry about the longevity.

'good enough comparing the price'

F Mubin, B&H Photo
12 September 2014
  • Excerpt: The product is quite good, I have used the 50mm f/1.4D as well. similar performance so I think people who have got expensive body with focus motor , need not to buy the G lens. Still, It is a good one considering all the pros & cons.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Weak Casing
