Good lens after I got it on

  • Excerpt: The lens itself was good and sharp and not a problem, It was so tight mounting it on my camera {D-7000} It took an effort to lock it in. I sent it back and will live without a 50mm lens. Maybe some else would have better luck with it.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Difficult To Use

Fair lens, but not "great".

  • Summary: This lightweight lens is very sharp under most circumstances. It seems cheaply made - plastic. The lens often focuses poorly if you have it at f/1.8 - focusing much closer than it should. (Not sure if this would occur on all cameras, but it happens on my D800e).

Misleading photo listed

  • Summary: Just received this and the photo listed is misleading since the filter is not Zeikos, it is another brand (Xit XT58UV 58 Camera Lens Sky and UV Filters) I understand both Zeikos and the other one that came with the package are same price but I still prefer to know what I am buying.

  • Summary: I should have gotten the f1.4 version. This lens is ok, it works... I just should have spent a few more dollars for the faster version...

Normal FX lens

  • Excerpt: It's bulky version of the great manual 50mm by Nikon. The autofocus adds bulk but plastic keeps the weight down.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Bulky

Average 50mm Lens, soft wide open, Nothing special about this one.

Steve Huff, Amazon

  • Summary: Ordered a Nikon Df and this lens came with it. It has been a while since I shot with a Nikon and this lens is the same as I remember it. Pretty soft wide open and doesn't get really sharp until f/2.5. This is an average 50mm lens and I'd pay $100 for it but not $279.

Affordable and nice

  • Excerpt: I use it for indoor potrait. This lens is ultralight and very sharp. I can use it aperture full open at f/1.4. The focusing motor is super smooth and moderately fast. On D7000, vignetting is not so much but on D800, I do see darkening at the corners.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

For the Money, decent lens

WyoPhoto, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I bought this as a full frame alternative for my D800. I didn't have the money for the 24-70mm and thought this would be a good compromise. Well it isn't! If you are used to the quality of the 70-200mm or other pro glass, you will not be happy with this particular lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, price
  • Cons: High Noise, Quality, Short Focus
