Showing 101-110 of 500
Great product. Maybe some expensive, but very quality.
5 October 2011
Summary: 1. I bought this lens for several reasons: my old lens gave strong backing focus and in Ukraine it is much more expensive than Ebay 2. That is my primary lens, about 50% of my photos was taken with this lens.
Summary: -First let me just say that in reading past reviews it was frustrating reading some controversial reviews about one lens or the other or a flash that works great on the "their" camera, and an other review on the same lens ect... saying it didn't fit or work on their camera, when "they" never said what camera body that they had, so here up front and in my review title I am saying that I have The D5100- DSLR -I was extremely impressed with the speed at which this lens was...
Summary: I recently bought a D3100 and added the 50mm f/1.8g for portraits and general shooting. The lense works realy well with my camera. Low light shots are wonderful and closeups are clear and crisp. Great lense at an affordable price.
Summary: this lens is great, i use it with my nikon d3000, which does not normally have autofocus with the other 50 mm lenses but does with this lens. i am not an expert but it is much better than the stock lens that comes with the camera. it has sharp photos and easy to use with autofocus. it also does a good job of blurring the background and focusing on the central item in the picture.
Summary: I'd been wanting a 50mm prime lens for a long while, and when I found this one in my price range, I quickly snatched one up. I mostly shoot still life and this lens gives me great focus and depth of field on my small subjects that I just can't get with any other lens. I've learned to never expect less from a Nikon product though.
Summary: I am a pro photographer who takes portraits and events. I have a wide angle, zoom midrange, 35mm prime and telephoto. I had the 50mm 1.8D and did not like it as compared to the 35mm, 1.8. I still have the 35mm, 1.8 lens that I compared this to. I loved my 35mm but this lens is a gift to Nikon users. For just a little over $200, you have exceptional sharpness AND color. This is where this lens beats the 35mm, the color.
Summary: I felt somewhat obligated to enter a review, as the only quick review of two stars seemed a bit unfair. But, in all fairness, I've only had this lens for about 24 hours, so take this for what it's worth. I've used the 1.8 D for a couple years and was generally satisfied with it. Had I not been given the option to upgrade, I don't think I would complain about it too much, but of course it's got it's issues.
Pros: Build, AF speed, Improved optics wide open, silent af, auto/manual override, great bokeh
