Excerpt: I guess my 5 star rating gives it away. but, there are some cons. first, the pros.....well, pros are, price, great glass for the price. sharp. price. and for the money, you can't go wrong. the rest of it you've read in the many other reviews. tons of them. you all know how amazing this 50mm is. okay, so some cons. first con, when you are getting your dslr cleaned, or fixed cause you dropped it...ouch. you aren't able to use your 50mm G lens. that's a con.
Excerpt: Love this lens. I took a photography workshop and they raved about it so much I had to have one. I use it on my Nikon 7000 and it's perfect for portraits. The workshop instructors also use it for macro with extension tubes and I'm anxious to give that a try.
Excerpt: This lens has been quite well reviewed, so my small voice will just be a whisper. The best available auto-focus 50mm lens for Nikon for the money, or actually for any money. I have used the f1.4 AF-D, the f1.4 AF-S, the f1.4 AI-S, the 55mm f2.8 AI-S micro and the Zeiss 50mm f1.4.
Excerpt: Best 1.8 you can buy for the price. Using this with my cropped sensor turns it into a 75mm portrait lens. Pretty fast focus. Quality bokeh. Actually fools you into thinking you might be a good photographer! But seriously, it's a Prime lenses that forces you to start framing correctly. Just buy it.
Excerpt: NIKON -thank you very much for 35,50 and 85mm 1.8G. Finally I bought 50mm. Now I am done with lenses for a long time because I don't think that there is anything better than these three. Combination of quality, size, weight and price-nothing is better. Of course you can get 24-70 or 70-200. But it will cost you thousands, they are huge and heavy. I can't imagine being on vacation in Europe and walking around with 70-200 2.8. I would worry-lens cost as much as vacation.
Excerpt: Excellent definiton, sharpness and virtually no chromatic aberration. Like a short telephoto in my DX camera. Perhaps too light weight to inspire confidence or trust it will last. I have an old Nikkor AF 24 mm, 2.8 AF that is 35 years old that works and looks like new...
