If you are looking for a fast, light weight, compact, affordable normal lens (FX format) for available light photography, this is the one to get. Although it is a manual focus lens, it has transitioned beautifully from my Nikon F3 to my D600 and D800.
I've used this lens for landscapes on my D7000 and more recently the D800e. Due to focus shift you must use Live View to achieve maximum sharpness at infinity, especially on the D800e. At f5.6-11 it is as sharp or sharper than any lens I own, including a couple of Zeiss. Highly recommended.
This lens I bought because I never use flash and needed a fast lens because I never use flash. Sharpness is very good. Love it!
f stop,, sharpness
sharpest lens ever had
Yes its a great lens but if you really want a 50mm just go for the nikon 50 1.8 auto focus. Yes event though theres a F stop difference the newer 50 is sharper and has a better contrast ratio and also does not have as much color aberrations.
This is by far the best 50mm prime lens i have ever had the pleasure of using. The color rendition is beautiful, and the low light performance is stellar.
I use it all the time, I love the picture this glass takes, I just love this lens, Yes it doesnt autofocus and heavy, but it doesnt make me love it less. :)
Its a great lens and the color is great from what I could use. Sadly I didn't realize it was incompatible with my D90 for some features on it. Otherwise it would have been a great lens.
This lens is a must for taking indoor shots without flash.Good portrait and general photo lens.High quality metal construction unlike the cheap plastic AF lenses made today.Nikon should add the 180mm f/2.8 ed manual focus ais to their lineup.
Good general use lens. Took some great portraits of my daughters. One pretty sweet lens.
