Excellent lens for the price, provides terrific bokeh. I use it a lot for portraits, and it's light weight make it a great general walking-around lens. I found myself using this lens a lot more that I envisioned on a trip to Europe this summer. I used it almost exclusively for dimly-lit cathedrals and church interiors. The speed and normal perspective were big advantages shooting architecture and night scenes. Reviews say it's soft at f1.4, but I've never noticed it. But then I care less ...

Nothing special to say about this lens. Wide open it's a bit soft and has a little CA but once you reach f/2.8 it's nearly perfect. For its price you can't really get a better 50mm.

Fantastic lens, but rarely worth swapping out my17-55. When travelling light, I'll more often grab the 35mm f/1.8 as 50mm on a DX is a somewhat awkward focal length. Excellent optics. Problems: Plastic filter threads broke when it got banged on something.
