Reviews and Problems with Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G
Showing 81-90 of 500
my new FAVORITE lens
15 August 2012
Summary: I purchased this lens recently for my new Nikon D3200 and have used it enough now to say that it's by far my favorite lens!! I use this lense for portraits, head shots, etc., however even the simplest pictures look like they're taken by a pro. The abilities of this lens are surely impressive and I look forward to the magic that we create together.
Summary: Seriously, this lens is beautiful. The bokeh you can get with the wide aperture is just amazing. I very rarely take it off my camera. Perfect for portraits, weddings, everything. Shoots incredibly in low light too!
Summary: Works just as great as described by those who recommended me this lense.. Now I have all what I wanted from a low budget lense for the beginner. Fast, reliable and quiet autofocus, good picture, and not bad images made in half light. Would recommend!
Summary: I'm new at this DSLR stuff, and even I can see the difference that this lens makes -- for both still images and video. I thought the kit lens that came with my Nikon D3200 was fine, but kept reading about the importance of having a good prime lens. I bought this one after reading the reviews, and so far I love it. It's definitely better in low lighting, and I really like that you can override the autofocus and focus manually at any time.
Summary: I upgraded from the 50mm 1.8D and was thoroughly impressed with the 50mm 1.8G. For the money this is the best lens Nikon has to offer; fantastic optics and build quality. What can I say, for the price this is optically the best lens I've ever used. Wide open (f/1.8-2.2) this lens performs very very well; sharp corners, good contrast, smooth and pleasing bokeh.
Summary: I use this lens on a Nikon 5100 and it works great. I use this as my primary lens on my camera and use other lenses sparingly. It is quite sharp at f2.8 especially. I have found the auto focus to be quick, sometimes a hair off but mostly pretty spot on. I would recommend this lens as a great general use lens.
