  • 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...

  • Excerpt: Just rec'd this lens after CAREFULLY reading entire description and I have a Nikon D3200 --- I checked other sites and see that auto focus is NOT supported and this was not noted in the description : ***About the Nikon 50mm F/1.8 This compact and fast, f/1.8 lens is versatile and perfect for travel and portrait pictures as well as general photography.

  • 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

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. It has 58mm filter thread, so I can't use my old 52mm UV and CPL filters.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

For the Money, decent lens

  • 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. I saw high color noise regardless of aperture or shutter speed. With that said, if you are an amateur or serious amateur, this may work as a low price alternative! Not a bad lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, price
  • Cons: High Noise, Quality, Short Focus

Very sharp

Roadrunner, B&H Photo

  • 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
