great investment

  • Summary: I am a professional photographer. I use 50mm as regular normal lense. But this glass gives you something other than fast speed, it also lenders incredible colors.

soft at f1.4, but great lens from f2 upwards. a good 35mm choice.

  • Summary: very good lens over all. excellent build. soft at f1.4 but very sharp from f2 and up. the widest aperture should be reserved for only cases of extreme low light. other than that, using at f2 is a pleasure with shallow enough DOF.

Very good lens especially in low light conditions

  • Summary: I have a Nikkor AF-S lenses, but for several years I'm looking for manual Nikkor lenses. Especially aperture f 2.8 down for my Nikon FM2n and D700. As new Nikkor lens are more expensive, a good and affordable alternative are Manual old lenses . This lens have a great optical design and are very well made and useful for digital cameras. Till today is posible to get excellent examples of manual lenses.

Sharp and beautiful from f/2.8 on down. A good lens overall.

  • Summary: It's soft and has low contrast at f/1.4, but is plenty sharp and has beautiful color/contrast from f/2.8 on down. Bokeh is very pleasing on this lens - preferable to the 50/1.2 or the 105/1.8 in my opinion (although not quite in the neighborhood of the 84/1.4). A good lens overall, but I'm not confident it's worth the extra money it costs over the 35/2.0.

Buy a modern zoom lens.

  • Summary: Any modern lenses are better than this old manual lens at the same focal length. It's very soft and less contrast at wide open or stop down one or two. Useable at F4.

Great optics for night and black and white photography

  • Summary: I wanted to have this beautiful wide-angle lens longingly for my photographic experience. The reasons to buy this 40 years old design lens for my Nikon FM3a camera are simple:-I would use it with my manual focus camera as standard lens.-Much better mechanics and high quality construction.-Suitable for night photography.İt gives the speed that I needed for use in low light situations.

  • Summary: Real good for close ups on fishing trips.Color slides are magnificent with this lens.Lens is very sturdy and focuses nicely.Too many people are stating flaws for these manual lenses because they are using digital slrs.They are just fine using film slrs. Film slides rock.
