Excerpt: I absolutely love this lens. It has not come off my D5300 since I bought it 3 weeks ago. My primary purpose for buying this lens was to take portrait pictures indoors and because it was highly recommended by my instructor as far as sharpness and quality of my images.
Excerpt: I have owned the 50 1.4g and the 50 1.8d, the 50 1.8g is my favorite, love it for street photography, very light, unobtrusive. If you were thinking about purchasing the 50 1.8d or the 50 1.4g the 50 1.8g gives you the best of both worlds.
Excerpt: Very sharp lens for a really great price. It is super light and short making for a great walk around lens. It has really nice bokeh at large apertures. My only complaint is that you can't really take photos at smaller apertures in anything but bright light because it doesn't have VR but that's...
Excerpt: I was very surprised and pleased that Beach Camera offered this Nikon prime lens free when purchasing a Nikon D750. Full frame cameras do best with prime lenses and this is one of Nikons very good ones.
Pros: Refurbished by Nikon Warranty on Lens Small & Light Reasonably Fast Aperature Normal View Pretty Sharp
Cons: That it's Not a Zoom with Wider/Longer Reach
Excerpt: Received this lens in perfect condition! I absolutely love it and have used it for portrait photography. It has very sharp facial focus with beautiful background blur at f4, which is what I mostly use.
