Excerpt: It was a hard decision choosing between the Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8 and the Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4 lenses. I ended buying this AF-S 50mm f/1.8 and I am very happy with it. The good: -Great picture quality -Fast autofocus -Nice bokeh -Very lightweight -Very small The bad: -Autofocus doesn't work as well in low lighting conditions. Manual focus is the solution in those cases.
Excerpt: Been using this lens for about 8 years now. I personally didn't really like the 50mm range on the DX, but loved it on my FX. I really like the color this lens brings out, and the bokeh it produces. The only thing I find a bit annoying about this lens is the noise of the focusing when set to AF.
Excerpt: Got this lense back in the middle of September of last year. Really have to say that this was a great investment since I do portrait photography for people at Scifi and Anime cons on the east coast. The only issue I have with the lense is getting a full body shot of the person your shooting. You have to take a few steps back just to be able to get it. But like I said before it was a great investment for me.
Excerpt: This is a very sharp lens on a DX body. Also very light. I found myself backing up at times forgetting it is 75mm equivalent full frame. It does not focus as quickly in low light as my 18-140 DX on my D7100. Otherwise I would give it a 5.
Excerpt: I am an amateur at best but this lens makes my photos look professional! I'm super pleased with my decision to purchase this lens. I plan to use it to photograph my son and do family portraits. I recommend it to anyone who wants better looking photos and for the cost you can't beat it!
But otherwise I really like how clear the images turn out

Summary: I bought this for my Nikon 7000. The items came very quickly! It seems that the lens' autofocus feature doesn't always do what it's supposed to do. But otherwise I really like how clear the images turn out. I have to play with it around some more.
