Excerpt: I purchased the 50mm Nikkor AF-S f/1.8G lens for my DX format cropped-frame DSLR (a Nikon D3200). This lens is actually a FX lens for FX format full-frame DSLRs, but works well with DX cameras too.
Excerpt: I just purchased this lens as an capable walk around lens. Not too wide, not too long. It is sharp and the f1.8 aperture is wide enough to gather lots of light. The lens is plastic. The lens hood which I usually use is very flimsy, I just hope it stands up.
Excerpt: I bought this lens new, to go with a refurbished Nikon Df. I use it all the time! I get beautifully clear photos. This lens has been out for a few years and has been reviewed positively on many web sites, including B&H. It's a great value.
Excerpt: Purchased a Nikon 3300 a few months ago and while I am pleased with the camera, the kit lenses leave something to be desired. This Nikon 50mm, 1.8 has provided some new areas when dealing with depth of field and softening the background. Very pleased with this purchase.
Not a new lens as stated. Broken components in accessories.

Summary: The lens is fantastic, takes brilliant photos. Brand new lenses would have a factory seal on a nice box. Used lenses are in a scuffed box that has no seal and that's what I received. Also, the tripod in the starter kit was broken and the broken piece was nowhere to be found.
Excerpt: I debated buying a 50mm for some time; I invested a substantial amount of cash in the gold-ring trio of a Nikon 16-35mm f/4 G, 70-200 f/4 G and 24-120 f/4 G. Each is superb, but each is also heavy and large. Did I "need" a 50mm? No.
