Excerpt: Been using this lens for about 8 years now. I personally didn't really like the 50mm range on the DX, but loved it on my FX. I really like the color this lens brings out, and the bokeh it produces. The only thing I find a bit annoying about this lens is the noise of the focusing when set to AF.
Excerpt: I purchased this lens for my nikon D90 and I couldn't be more pleased! The depth of field (blurred background) is exactly what I was wanting! The customer service from b&h is exceptional. I appreciated the next day free shipping!!
Excerpt: I bought this lens for my food blog, and I couldn't be happier with the quality. I had previously used the lens that came with my camera, an 18-55 mm lens; the difference in my photo quality from that lens to this one is immeasurable. For its reasonable price, this lens is the way to go.
Excerpt: Got this lense back in the middle of September of last year. Really have to say that this was a great investment since I do portrait photography for people at Scifi and Anime cons on the east coast. The only issue I have with the lense is getting a full body shot of the person your shooting.
Excerpt: This is a very sharp lens on a DX body. Also very light. I found myself backing up at times forgetting it is 75mm equivalent full frame. It does not focus as quickly in low light as my 18-140 DX on my D7100. Otherwise I would give it a 5.
Summary: Just received this and the photo listed is misleading since the filter is not Zeikos, it is another brand (Xit XT58UV 58 Camera Lens Sky and UV Filters) I understand both Zeikos and the other one that came with the package are same price but I still prefer to know what I am buying.
