Superb value

I tested this lens at some length before buying and was very pleasantly surprised. This is a superb lens. The images are very sharp and the fast f1.8 lens makes it brilliant in low light. Considering the f1.4 version, which also has Nikon's VR on it is over 3 times the price, I cannot fault this lens.

It has rapidly become my favorite lens due to its high quality images.


None noticed. You must consider that when the crop factor is taken into account, it is equivalent to a 75mm lens on 35mm. That said it makes it a great portrait lens
