I comtemplated getting this lens (upgrading my 50 1.8d to this 50 1.8g) for a while and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner! I love this lens, it's my go-to lens for almost everything I shoot. The bokeh is great, sharp focus, and it performs very well in low light. I would reccomend this to any photographer!

Bought the D instead of a G because of the slightly smaller size. Ended up exchanging it and going with the G model because it was a real tight fit when trying to mount and unmount from camera. My other lenses felt nice and smooth and easy to mount and unmount, this one felt like there was considerable amount of tension. G model did not have the issue. No complaints on the image.
fast lens with excellent low light capability
purple spot appears on "black" objects on all shots taken at f/8 to f/22 with light sources
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.
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
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.
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).
I feel as though this lens is fast and crisp. I use it for wildlife and portraits. very versatile for aprime lens!
I love bringing this lens on a second body. It is very lightweight, sharp, quiet and of course, has beautiful bokeh.
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.
