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!

Purple spot at f/8 or more...


purple spot appears on "black" objects on all shots taken at f/8 to f/22 with light sources


Filled a hole in my line up


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


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


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


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).


wouldn't autofocus at first.


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.


Perfect Portraits


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.


I heard nothing but great things.


Had great experience on chat.


Great value!


Great inexpensive lens. Fast, sharp, can't afford to not have one of these in your bag.


Great lens for the price


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.
