Highly recommended. Good seller

Summary: Excellent seller. The product has arrived at certain times and conditions. Affordable. The 50mm is an excellent lens for its brightness and incredible depth of field. Low weight and easy to carry.
Summary: I love to take photos of my grandchildren, and the kit lenses that come with my Nikon D90 just were not producing the quality that I wanted. It isn't that they're not great lens too, but they just were not fast enough (f4.0-5.6). With this lens at f1.8 you can get great indoor shots even at iso200 and without a flash.
Summary: This lens are very good. If you have full-frame camera, this is old-good 50mm, on crop this will be 75mm, so if you think to picture birthday party in small room with crop look at 35mm. Sometimes in semi-dark environments picture gets blurry, so be very very careful with settings on manual mode (I don't use auto). P.S. anyway, with this price you can't get better lens. Anyway this will be better than zoom lens (kit, or any other...
Summary: I do not recommend this lens if you want to have some with which you can take photos. Its capabilities are limited. one of 18-55 mm lenses is better than this if you want to take a building picture. As you guess ,it has no zoom capability. and i do not think that it deserves $200 . But it is so light .:)) because it is plastic . Nevertheless it can be useful in taking portrait pictures.
Summary: This is an awesome lens. It gives me a nice bokeh background. I have been able to capture great shots of my two toddlers although at times when they move fast my picture becomes out of focus so I really have to be close to them, nevertheless I am very happy with the lens.
Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S Nikkor review by Prime Minister

Summary: Like the AF-S 85mm f/1.8G, this AF-S 50mm f/1.8G is a nice surprise. And an affordable one too. Sharpness and contrast in the center are very good already at f/1.8 (really) and stopping down the whole image becomes nice and sharp at f/2.8. It's fun to have a lens which gives usable sharpness at f/1.8. None of the other AF 50mm lenses from Nikon are this sharp and contrasty at this aperture. CA is well under control and I find the bokeh of this lens soft and unobtrusive.
Pros: Sharp, faster auto focus, small, light, affordable, recessed front lens
