Excerpt: I use this lens primarily for street / indoor low light photography. My copy is very sharp, even in the corners when stopped down to 2.0 or more. Bokeh is excellent, probably better than any any other lens I own. I can't imagine being without this now that I own it. I would replace if lost or stolen. If I could improve one thing about this lens, it would be faster focusing. Although it is accurate, it would be nice if it were a tad bit faster.
Excerpt: Before this I used my 35mm f1.8G DX on an FX body. As can be read elsewhere, the focus is adequate but not fast. I mainly use my camera gear to photograph my child. Given this is the most affordable Nikon f/1.4 I have been happy with the results and value. 50mm is a nice perspective compared to 35mm for candids.
