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!

Filled a hole in my line up

By

from san angelo, texas  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Needed a good fast 50mm to fill a hole in my line up. Very pleased. Purchased as "used" with an E rating. When I opened it I could find no evidence of previous usage. It works great and I'll enjoy using this lens. Very light weight and photos are crisp and sharp.

50mm 1.8d

By

from New Jersey  -  Photo Enthusiast

My D7000 work with the 50 1.8d perfectly and it auto focus cause the camera as the built in motor. Sharp pictures. Always great to buy from Adorama specially on super sale items. I have no regret purchasing this lens for about 90 dollars. Thanks again Adorama. Alex

Cheap fast prime lens, manual focus

By

from Harrison, Me

This lens is a steal for the money . I use it with my Nikon D3200 it only works in manual focus but it's F/1.8 aperture is great for low light conditions. I have used this lens to photograph stars, landscapes and people, a nice prime lens takes better pics than the kit lens that comes with the camera.

Wonderful prime lens

By

from Citrus County, FL, USA

I love this lens. I use it on my d7100 and the results have been excellent. It is great in low light, very sharp, focuses quickly, and gives great crispness and color fidelity. At the price, this may be the best bargain in camera lenses, period. I highly recommend this lens for any camera with a focus motor in the camera (7000 series or higher).

My Go-To Glass

By

from Columbia, SC, USA

I love this lens. Watched Youtube videos where some reviews made critical comments about it being plastic instead of metal. That means nothing to me. This was my first lens, and it is miles beyond the kit lenses. This lens will immediately increase your confidence in what you can do with your camera. You will become very familiar with the word "bokeh" as you use this lens.

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.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DONALD G  Good light basic lens.
Shopper  Does this lens work with the D90?
IVAN R  The simple answer is: yes. Are you asking, if this lens would auto-focus with the D90? the answer is still yes, as the D90 has a built-in autofocus motor. This is a great lens for the cost. I still have to find something 'bad' about this lens. I use it with my FX and DX bodies with no issue whatsoever.
yoon h  will it fit to my D200?
DEXTER H  Yes.
