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.
Excellent lense. Saw it compared to the 1.8 version shot for shot and it is hands down the best of the two. The first lense I purchased to go with my N80. Very versitile. Took this sweet lense on a cruise and took pictures with no flash in the darkest bowels of the ship. (Ok...
Price/Quality for a Light Vacum
Short for sports, not wide enough
Without question an amazing lens! The beauty and charm with this lens is the fact that, by today's standards, it's not perfect. I use this for just about everything from flowers to portraits, wide open, and the results are exquisite.
Perfect lens for street photography, portraits, etc. Light and small but really solid feeling and very CRISP images!!!
I use this on my Canon 5D and C300, and it's one of the best lenses I've used in terms of contrast, color, sharpness, functionality, and, of course, the price.The focus ring is buttery smooth and fun to use, and has a decent throw distance.
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'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.
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. :)
