Summary: This is my second prime the first was a 35 1.8f also Nikon AFS. I have taken some of my best pictures with either of these two lenses. The 50 is great for outside work and the 35 is my inside lens. Being fairly new to photography I have also taken some crappy pics. It's my fault that they don't turn out to my liking.
Summary: this is a great lens. It is very easy to use, and the photos come out great. I am only 14 years old and I completely understand how to use this lens. I use this with my d3100 camera, and I love how I am able to switch between manual and auto focus. I also love the depth of field it has.I would definitely recommend this lens!
Summary: A no brainer, just get one. On a D7100 this lens captures an amazing image in near dark conditions. It is crystal clear, handles depth of field possibilities superbly, and portraits are as good as you'll ever need. Spend $1000 if you must; for 99% of us your images won't be any better than this lens produces.
Summary: This is a mainstream lens, not very special, a not overexciting image quality, just a normal performer. I think that Nikon will need to be doing something to stay in competition: more and more third party manufacturers are delivering a better quality at a lower price. If I was in their driver seat, nobody could beat the quality of my own range of lenses.
Summary: For the money it is hard to beat. At f1.8 it produces a shallow dof with nice bokeh. Great in low light. This lens is tack sharp. Great image quality! Mine was Nikon refurbished. Absolutely no issues at all. Looks and performs just like a brand new unit.
