Fair lens, but not "great".

R. Snyder "whatsthedeal", Amazon

  • 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

Very sharp

Roadrunner, B&H Photo
18 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Upgraded from the 50mm f/1.8D. By comparison this lens is physically larger but is very light and feels very cheap. It does take sharp pictures but can't say they are any better than before. In retrospect, keeping the 1.8D would have been fine as I just don't like the cheap feel of this lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Not Durable
