Excerpt: Feels a bit light but the operation and optics are great. Can't fault it - especially at the price. I was going to go for the f1.4 but was convinced by a couple of magazine tests that this was the better performer as well as being half the price!
Excerpt: I use it for portrait lens. It's a great prime lens for the price and for those who love to create a soft background. However, if not using a full frame then it's framed as a 75 so you have to play around with it to know how close or how far to stand.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Great For Portrait Lens, Lightweight
Excerpt: You really can't go past the 50mm 1.8. It's awesome for pretty much every avenue of photography you want to get into. If you want to capture some crisp night images, its possible with the 1.8 apperture. You can also snap some beautiful portraits with incredibly soft bokeh. This is your go to lens, definitely a game changer. There is some difficulty getting used to the set 50mm focal legnth. However, you will come to realise it rapidly improves your photography.
Excerpt: So, I am only giving 4 stars because I have only used the Lens once so far...with that said it was a great first outing. I bought the lens specifically to take portraits of my niece and nephew and it didn't disappoint. It is easy to use, quick, and the images are so clear. you can't beat it for the price. I can't wait to try it out on my next vacation. I highly recommend!
Excerpt: I read reviews, I compared sharpness, I compared bokeh. I was not looking for a cheap 50mm lens, I was looking for a great one. I want to start off my career with the best image quality I can muster. I tried Nikon's 50mm 1.4G too, but the bokeh on this 1.8 is so much nicer--smooth, rounded, creamy. No rings around the circles, no octagonal "circles" of light. It was between this 1.8G and the Sigma 50mm 1.4, which I have also tried.
