Excerpt: I recieved the Nikon D610 camera body as a gift. I wanted to start out with a 50mm lens without spending a whole lot of money while learning to use my camera. I did a little research and several blogs recommended this lens and I'm glad I purchased it. It is light weight and the lens clear. Plus the price of the lens is a great value!
Excerpt: I bought this lens with my first camera. I have barely used the kit lens because this lens is just awesome. Great bokeh with the low f-stops. Amazing lowlight photos. The 50mm length is great for just about everything. Will definitely be buying the other primes in this line of lenses. Now I just have to decide on the 35mm or the 85mm as my next lens to buy.
Excerpt: Bought this lens but returned it because the focal length was too zoomed. I have a DX body and this is a FX lens but I was really curious about the performance. The photos I did take had smooth bokeh and the super crisp details but I really had no use for it since I have the 35mm DX which I really love. But I do recommend this lens. Great value for the price, can't go wrong!!!
Excerpt: Amazing for portraits on my D5100. Not so great unless your subject is at least 15 feet away, and as a prime lens you have to zoom with your feet. But for the price, you can't beat the quality!
