This is a great starter lens. Cheap too.

I took delivery of this lens on Monday and have been testing. So far it's great although auto focus is a little slower than modern lenses that have IF;  but that's OK because most images I will use this for will be static objects. I am comparing sharpness with my 60mm 1: 1.8 AF Micro and maybe the 60mm wins by a little. In low light however the f/1.8 gives much better results even with very low shutter speeds. As is expected, although the difference is stark. The 50mm has faster focus time ...

This was one of the first lenses I bought, with the intention of using it for photos of podium presentations at sports events. However, I soon found I was using it for all sorts of things - it's an extremely useful and reliable bit of kit, absolutely perfect for those occasions when you're not setting out to photograph anything in particular, but just taking a stroll with a camera to see what you can find. It's also the only Nikon-branded item I've ever bought that was cheap. Mine came from a ...

Got this used Nikkor for €76. On D600 it produced great results in center, which I need the most for my use. f/2.2 totally useable and from f/4 on razor sharp. Don't mind about people complaining about it being cheaply made out plastic in China. It is a must for those who prefer lightweight good optics for low price. Highly recommended for everyone with Nikon camera with in-body AF motor! Thanks to its aperture ring it works very well on mirrorless bodies as manual focus lens. Perhaps the ...

I really love at f8 for sharpness at a distance, all corners sharp! Come close at wide open you'll get a nice bokeh. Been using this lens for at least 5 months attached on my D5100 and gave me surprise. Below images are straight out from the camera no editing whatsoever. I don't care if it is a plastic made in China like other reviews said. At f/8... Riyadh Metro on going construction. Shot at nearly 50 meters far and 20 meters high. (sun was behind) At f/2.8 Close enough with CU +4 i think.. ...

I will give two and a half stars, no more. Glass maybe ok, but lens is full of plastic and most of all....MADE IN CHINA. Almost all the articles I have made in China were cheap, and didn't last...I was forced to buy them , because 20 same items in the stores I look for, all 20 were made in China, so, it was in a situation where I was told to myself...hey, is either this, or don't buy this article, but now days ,I am bypassing anything made in China and if I am in big need of that article, I ...

Bad : Looks like crap when shooting wide open (f/1.8) Good : Very sharp at f/5.6 Good : Very cheep. Got it for €90. Bad : Is designed for Full Frame, which makes it a 75mm in DX Cameras.

I picked this up a few days ago to have a lighter fast prime to play with. (I love my 60mm micro, but it's quite a bit heavier!) I was being a distinct penny pincher and the price of this ($122) versus the f/1.8G ($252) was significant. (note: prices are in Australian dollars) Likes: Cheap, delightfully sharp, lightweight. Dislikes: It only comes with a front lens cap, no rear one. I can't speak for the technical side, but I find this lens fun to use. The AF on my D7000 is faster than with my ...

Who has a Nikon DSLR body,  should have this lens. Cheap, light weight, sharp, very fast, perfect quality.

I've been using this lens in very different situations and it is a great one! LANDSCAPE Very sharp, great details, good colors and saturation. ARCHITECTURE Good job, even here very sharp and without any distortion (except very huge enlargements) STUDIO / PORTRAIT Very suitable even in portrait, even if bokeh is not at the top, it is much more better than any zoom (I have got the Nikon 28-70/2.8 and it cannot reach the 50/1.8 level) It soffers just in backlight, with sime flares and ghosts 4.5 ...
