Staple lens

  • Excerpt: Unreal quality for film. Amazing contrast and color for portrait and street stills. Slow focusing ring but is necessary for the depth of field.

Exeptional Lens!

  • Excerpt: Overall amazing lens, I mainly use it for street photography and landscapes and I absolutely love it. The lens is well built, optic-wise and exterior-wise, so yeah, its tough. If you are the type of photographer who dont mind manual focus this is the lens for you!

  • Excerpt: This lens has been on my wish list for quite some time now. The quality is amazing, with full metal body and even lens hood. It isn't light as a result, but it is very sturdy. The focus ring is also absolutely fantastic, and feels smooth and solid.

  • Excerpt: I tested this on my D810 against my Nikkor 50mm D and 24 - 120mm f4 zoom, and my 45mm Nikkor pancake lens. Sadly this lens had the worse CA of the lot. At this point in time anyone interested in a manual 50mm for digital use should be looking at the Zeiss Milvus range as this lens design is outdated...

Great Lens, just give it couple months before you give it up

  • Excerpt: I would consider myself a beginner photographer and I love this lens. For some reason, I saw so many good reviews about this lens, hence went ahead and bought it. First two weeks; horrible.

Manual Focus..No problemo!

Josh Photo, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I was worried when purchasing this lens that the manual focus would be an issue. It is not. Like others say it's smooth and the perfect tension. I can quickly focus the lens for "action" shots. Granted not in an AI servo way but things stationary moving is no problem.
