Excerpt: I am extremely impressed with this lens and the price. Excellent for portraits. I just did a newlywed session using this lens on a D7100 and noticed I had to shoot in manual focus...to get sharper photos. Great addition to the camera bag.
Summary: This is a mainstream lens, not very special, a not overexciting image quality, just a normal performer. I think that Nikon will need to be doing something to stay in competition: more and more third party manufacturers are delivering a better quality at a lower price. If I was in their driver seat, nobody could beat the quality of my own range of lenses.
Excerpt: This is an amazing lens. It's crazy sharp, but does have a decent amount of distortion, but nothing too noticible unless you're shoot brick walls. <br /><br />It's an amazing lens, and I would highly reccomend it.
Excerpt: Very satisfied with this product, is exactly what I wanted. Perfect for all-around shooting; the 50mm is a great choice for those who want high quality pictures of portraits, landscapes, and everything in between. It is a great first lens for a full frame camera. You can focus manually or automatically and the auto-focus is very fast and accurate.
Excerpt: This is a great lens for the price. what more can you ask for a prime lens that get your great shots in low light , with out breaking the bank. I love this lens, its my go to lens now and it also forces you to think about your composition more since the frame is much tighter. This is a super fast lens.
