Excerpt: I just got a D810 for Christmas and was looking for reasonable price for a lens since I don't have the money for a big one right now. So I looked online for a lens that would take great photos and was amazing on my camera. So I found the 50mm lens.
Excerpt: First I must say I own both 1.4 and 1.8 versions. Simply put: there is no reasonable argument to go for the 1.4G version, the end. First of all, almost no difference in results when you compare 1.4 and 1.8 images. Half the price.
Excerpt: This is my first prime lens. I wanted a prime lens that would work well for portrait photography. I decided on this lens because I use the Nikon D7200, so the crop frame makes this lens the equivalent of a 75mm, which is close to the 85mm so many people say is the "perfect" portrait lens.
