Excerpt: I think that the BEST use for this lens is to leave it in your gear bag!!!! VERY poorly made. This does NOT mount smoothly on my Nikon Camera and the focus is NOT sharp - as one would expect from Nikon.It IS inexpensive - but save your $+ and get a better lens.NOT happy with it at all.
Cons: Difficult To Use, Not Durable, Not Functional, Poor Design
Summary: Sharpness everywhere, beautiful contrast, fast auto focus, smooth and creamy bokeh wide open, good low-lighting performance, that's what you get when shooting with this lens. This is my favorite lens by far, everything just looks great.
Excerpt: I love this lens. It was just what I needed to achieve the bokeh effect in my background . I needed to use a lower f stop for low lighting situations and found myself using it all over! I love the images I get with it. It's a good length and it's a more artistic look in the image .
Excerpt: Love this lens! I was looking for something to compliment my 18-200mm which would provide a larger aperture and faster shutter speeds. Primarily for kids sports photos and random photography. I'm not a pro and don't consider myself advanced by any means.
Excerpt: I bought this lens ten days ago (this is my first 50mm lens) and so far, I am absolutely amazed at the clarity and depth of the pictures taken. This is great in any light but exceptionally good in low light. The autofocus is so quiet that you can hardly hear it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Very Quiet
