Excerpt: Yes its a great lens but if you really want a 50mm just go for the nikon 50 1.8 auto focus. Yes event though theres a F stop difference the newer 50 is sharper and has a better contrast ratio and also does not have as much color aberrations.
Summary: a great lens. I love it. It takes beautiful photos and is great for film. Gives you that yummy blurry background. Tip:. Get an nd filter to cut the light down so you can use it in bright conditions wide open
Good product that will take time to fully appreciate

Summary: This is not an auto focus lens, so it takes some work learning how to properly focus. This should be a good experience and help to improve my skills. The pictures taken a good so far and will only improve with more practice
Great lens, Great picture quality, Recommend for everyone.

Summary: The lens is great for those pictures that you'd like to take at the same level, field of view as the eye. Depth of field give a nice soft background for those portraits and its small enough to carry in almost any bag and definitely to have as an extra in every camera bag.
The product is good, this specimen was dirty as expected with the price.

Summary: This lens was my "project lens". I purchased it solely for the purpose of dismantling it, cleaning it and then reassembling it again. It has already proven its value being at very good condition and at the same time, providing a valuable comparison and verification as a dirty lens.
