Most Bang For The Buck!

This may be Nikon's least expensive lens and it is one of the best. It works on auto focus with the D80 but not with the D40 or D60 but that shouldn't stop you from purchasing. Manual focus is no big deal aat all. I use this lens mostly to do landscape and photo's of flowers. Of course you have to move your feet since it is a prime lens but that's no big deal either. This is a great walk around lens. Sharp as a tack. Can't think of even one tiny negative. Buy it, you'll love it!

wouldn't autofocus at first.

By

from McKinney, TX

Just got the lens today and right out of the box I couldn't get it to autofocus on my Nikon D7000. This lens seemed to be a very tight fit when I twisted it onto the camera body. I could manually focus the lens, but couldn't get it to autofocus. After several minutes trying different things I by accident discovered that the lens release button had not popped out after twisting the lens on. I slightly backed the lens off till the button popped out. Problem solved! The lens will now autofocus. Now to see what kind of pictures I can take with this little jewel.

loving the nifty 50..

By

from Bronx, N.Y.  -  Semi-Professional

I'm using it with my D 7000 which makes it a very nice portrait lens.. it's light weight, a lot of plastic but doesn't feel cheap. Can get in close for the tight shots. A fast focus and image quality is great.. Things that aren't so great.....Haven't found any yet..

Perfect Portraits

By

from Raleigh  -  Photography Student

Received this lens in perfect condition! I absolutely love it and have used it for portrait photography. It has very sharp facial focus with beautiful background blur at f4, which is what I mostly use.

Great Product

By

from Oklahoma City, OK.  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Portraits at family gatherings and landscape portraits when traveling are primary uses but not limited to them. Low light photos of indoor parties are great. Focus is fast and bokeh is sufficient for my uses. Saved some serious bucks going with the f/1.8 vs the f/1,4. Save some money and buy this lens. You won't be disappointed. The only bad thing I can say in regards to this purchase is that I had ordered it to use for my Grandsons B-Day party, but the shipping took more than 3 days so I missed that opportunity, and some great photo shots.

Great fast prime lens!

By

from Austin, TX, USA

I got this lens primarily to do head shots for musicians and actors and I couldn't be happier with the results I've gotten. Tack sharp detail, great depth of field for bokeh, and very vivid colors especially in the f/2 range. Light weight and very quiet auto focus round out the best qualities of this lens. If you can only afford one prime lens, this is the one to get.

Awesome lens!

By

from Massachusetts, USA

This lens is one of my favorite lens I owe. It comes with me on all shoots and is a preferred lens when that focal length works! I use it on my D800 with amazing results. Awesome sharpness and fantastic bokeh, highly recommended lens especially for the price!

Great lens for the price

By

from San Jose, CA, USA

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.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Pat T  Will this lense fit a D40 camera? If so will it work om auto focus?
NATHAN L  No. The AF-D lenses need the screw-drive mechanism on the camera body to autofocus, only available in Nikon's more expensive digital bodies. See kenrockwell (dot) com for his compatibility chart.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DONALD G  Good light basic lens.
MEL L  Will this lens work with my D5100?
LOUIS C  No it will work on models that have an internal body motor. You could use a fully manual lens (no motor) but I am not sure how your light meter would work. I know on my D7000 I can use fully manual Ais, and AF lenses.
