The DX's Nifty Fifty
2

There's not much to say here. This lens is a good all-around prime. It gives the same FOV of a 52.5 mm on FF. Being f/1.8 It's good for astrophotography and for portraits, but if I was heavily in portraits I'd give a look the the 50 mm f/1.8

This lens is pretty sharp edge-to-edge but there isn't anything to compare it to.

Maybe it's just me but I love the bokeh this lens gives. It's a bit odd but I really enjoy it.

It's very small, too, so I bring it with me every where I go.

I highly suggest it because for the price it's a very good lens na it's fun to use.

50 mm is not that wide tho, and I've found times (especially doing street) where this lens felt a bit too zoomed in.

I love this lens mounted on a D5600.  Every DX bag should have one!
