'good enough comparing the price'

  • 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

1st Prime Lens and 1st 1.4 fs

TR, B&H Photo
6 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Wow this is my first prime lens and first 1.4 fs lens. I really like being able to shoot in low light and shallow debt of field. It is easy to get images out of focus with such narrow debt of field. Example shooting child shoes, one shoe was two inches behind other show showed up as out of focus.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Shallow Debt Of Field, Sharp

A sharp Nikon Nikkor Prime Lens that Does what it is suppose to do!

d4nelli, Ebay
10 July 2014
  • Summary: This is a prime Nikon Nikkor Lens that produces sharp images. It can't compete with the prime 85mm 1.4G lens, but then again, you will pay 4 times as much for the 85mm lens compared to this 50mm lens. Great for portraiture.

So far, no complaints.

  • Excerpt: I've only been using this lens for a couple weeks but I've found very little to complain about so far. I've used several different fast fifties over the years and this one is about as good as any. In particular, it's much sharper wide open then most other lenses at similar apertures. The only downsides I've found are the autofocus speed (it's usable but not particularly quick), and the build quality (it's not poorly put-together but it is light and plasticky).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Great Prime Lens

Roogs, B&H Photo
14 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Since picking up this lens, it has become my primary lens for personal work. I have multiple lenses but this is my only prime since going digital. Work has required me to use other lenses but it has remained my go to when taking my camera out of the bag. I have had some issues w blue reflections showing up in shots where there is blow out light behind the lens. Some of this could be user error though, not all.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blue Light Relection

Awesome lens in a very small package

Happy shooter, Adorama
20 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I was happily surprised to see this lens being so small and light. At f/1.4 it is a sweet and very fast lens. Great for low light situations. I do not have the 24-70mm lens, so I use this lens to fill in this range. The only reason I did not gave it a 5 star rating is because sometimes it is a tiny bit slow on focusing, but that's about it. Did I mentioned how small and light this awesome lens is?
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Great lens...very sharp

Alan MacRae, Adorama

  • Excerpt: This is a good lens and it was nice to save a few bucks with Nikon's discount in the first quarter.<br /><br />I give it only 4 stars as a matter of the extensive use of plastic. Not that plastic isn't good but, as someone who has used Nikon gear for over 45 years, I'm used to the solid feel of their metal bodied lenses and miss that feeling in the newer glass.<br /><br />The lens is sharp, fast and has great bokeh, exactly what I bought it for. Great lens for the money.

Not all things to all people

DucatiDad, Adorama
14 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The lens delivers as advertised in terms of sharpness and light gathering but fails to deliver on some real life attributes. I find this lens slow to focus (compared to 70-200) and occasionally difficult to lock focus (with a D600.
