Excerpt: I am not at all a professional but this lens make my pics look like I am one ! I am still practicing but the shots so far are great ! Bokeh is beautuful. Only gave 4 stars becasue I haven't tapped it's full potential yet !
Excerpt: Some of the photos taken by me using this lens were superb and I have had some posters of them on my wall. I took my little 6 months kids pictures with it and some of my friends won't believe that I have taken those pictures.. Really neat. Worth buying it along with your DSLR. I used it with Nikon D5300.
Excerpt: Put the lens on my serviced Nikon D600 and had high expectations for the 50 as my walk=around, everyday lens. Not disappointed! Amazingly sharp, good contrast, and excellent color rendition, Combined with the great higher ISO qualities of the D600 getting excellent results with existing low light situations.
Pros: Durable, Excellent resolution, Great Color Rendition
Excerpt: I am absolutely in love with this lens. My portraits have taken on a whole new level. I've gotten offered a few more jobs with some of the samples! Simply stunning images. Couldn't ask for more.
Excerpt: I will be using this lens to photograph indoor and outdoor weddings, senior portraits, and families. I enjoy the aperture options! I have not found a single thing different than what I expected when I bought it. Overall great lens for quality for lighting varieties!
