Superb Replacement of the KIT lens
28 December 2014
Summary: KIT lenses do not do the cameras that they come with justice. This is the equivalent of 75mm on a crop sensor if you aren't using a full frame camera. Fantastic for indoor shots/portraits of any kind.
Pros: Fast auto focusing Excellent Bokeh Fantastic Image Quality, much better than KIT lens Great low light performance coupled with current generation Nikon cameras.
Cons: Twice the price of the equivalent Canon model. But I chose a Nikon camera for a reason, so that's ok.
Excerpt: This is a great, lightweight and fast lens. i love it for low light situations and takes me back 35 years when I started with a SLR 35mm camera + 50 mm lens combo. The lens is sharp and has a good bokeh. True, the build does not feel as solid as some years ago...

Although I have done no in-depth analysis of photos through this lens, nor detailed comparisons to others--and don't intend to--I...
Excerpt: Prime is definitely the way to go for lenses, you get more control over DOF and better image quality from them. This lens does just that, the autofocus is quiet and fairly quick. It does stall or miss its mark on occasion but that's just more motivation to shoot on manual focus.
