Excerpt: I absolutely love this lens. It has not come off my D5300 since I bought it 3 weeks ago. My primary purpose for buying this lens was to take portrait pictures indoors and because it was highly recommended by my instructor as far as sharpness and quality of my images.
Excerpt: I have owned the 50 1.4g and the 50 1.8d, the 50 1.8g is my favorite, love it for street photography, very light, unobtrusive. If you were thinking about purchasing the 50 1.8d or the 50 1.4g the 50 1.8g gives you the best of both worlds.
Excerpt: Very sharp lens for a really great price. It is super light and short making for a great walk around lens. It has really nice bokeh at large apertures. My only complaint is that you can't really take photos at smaller apertures in anything but bright light because it doesn't have VR but that's...
Excerpt: I was very surprised and pleased that Beach Camera offered this Nikon prime lens free when purchasing a Nikon D750. Full frame cameras do best with prime lenses and this is one of Nikons very good ones.
Pros: Refurbished by Nikon Warranty on Lens Small & Light Reasonably Fast Aperature Normal View Pretty Sharp
Cons: That it's Not a Zoom with Wider/Longer Reach
Summary: One of my best nighttime performers, better than the 50/1.4 AFS and than most other 50mm I tested (but the Noct of course), including the Voigtlaender Nokton 58/1.4. Good results in low light, generally speaking. Wide open, it vignettes a lot, but pictures do have some punch already.
Pros: Contrast, flare behaviour, against-the-light shoooting, point light sources
Summary: After looking at the different options to get this specific lens, I finally chose this bundle from Cameta Camera. First off, I read about the seller reviews before making a decision to purchase from a 3rd party since I normally do not.
