Excerpt: I don't normally buy "normal" lenses because I don't normally find them interesting but I am going on a trip overseas and figured I needed a lens for low light situations. Photographers that I respect had mentioned this lens as an excellent performer. They are correct. The resolution, image quality, and build are a bargain for the price to buy one. This is a good deal!
Excerpt: Bought primarily for product shots in factories; low lighting and busy backgrounds were my main problems, this lens works great to combat both. Obviously amazing for company bio portraits as well. Hard to beat it for the price.
Excerpt: This is the sixth lens of the Nikor family I purchase and the 3 "prime" or fixed length.<br />I love to do portrait photography and this lens has fitted perfectly my needs, I just don't know why I hadn't purchased it before!<br />The focus on this lens is spot on, pretty fast even in low light and renders a beautiful Bokeh!.<br />I tested it with some recently cooked and decorated pastries, and when I saw the sharpness of the product I was amazed.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Focus, Lightweight, Reliable, Sharp
Excerpt: I bought this lens to go with my Nikon D7000 for Studio work, along with Senior Pictures. <br /><br />This provides the low aperture I was needing. It was a must have for my collection, specially at its price. I would have to say it is one of the best lens you can buy for price to performance on the market!
