Excerpt: I am a new user of prime lenses, but my first test set of pictures with this lens already impressed me. Of course it is still a lot to learn how to get from this lens everything it can do. One thing already clear for me: I would never reach such a high quality of images with my zoom lenses like I reached using 50mm Nikkor.
Excerpt: Got the Nikon 1.8 G 50 mm lens for my D5100 Nikon and received the lens in five days with free shipping. I also have the 1.8 D lens but I like this one better. I also have the 40 mm 2.8 lens g macro.I raise tropical water lilies both lens work quite well. Good job B&H.
