Excerpt: I ordered this lens because I have started to shoot some street photography and just wanted a better lens than the kit lens I have. It has been everything I had hoped for and can seen why people talk about getting better lens and not always upgrading a camera.
Excerpt: I use this for portraits mainly and I think is an excellent lens. However, I took it out and shot at a farmers market the images were amazing. It is definitely on of those lenses to have in your bag.
Excerpt: I recently purchased this lens as it was recommended to me by a photographer who I am taking a beginner course from. So far I love it, and im sure the more I learn the more I will appreciate my purchase.
Excerpt: I use the lense mostly for portraits. I absolutely love the background bokeh in the photographs. The only possible negative is the adjustment period to getting used to not having to get so close for a close up picture!
Excerpt: I bought this lens to take photos of house plants but ended up keeping it on my camera since I purchased it. It's great for portraits, close ups, etc. etc. My only regret is that I waited 2 days too long and didn't get the special sale price. But I did get the filter kit for free so I guess that kind of makes up for it.
Excerpt: This is an excellent prime lens at a reasonable price. The sharpness and resolution is amazing. It is light and convenient. The quality is much better than a zoom lens. Also, the fixed mm of the prime lens forces you to be more conscious of creating the composition of the picture. After years with using zoom lens, I think I am going to return to using a Nikon 50 mm prime lens for most of my photography.
Summary: I am an amateur photographer that is broadening my skill set. Someone suggested to me to either try the AF-S 35mm or the 50mm. I went with the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G and I am so glad that I did. The way that this lens performs in low light situations is perfection. The bokeh it produces is beautiful. I have tested it on my dog and on people and the way I can easily transition on the manual settings is unmatchable for any of the other lenses I have.
