solid prime lens for Nikon FX4 Posted by: from: Denver, CO on This is a high quality prime lens for a Nikon DSLR FX (full size sensor) body. It is the equivalent of a 75MM fixed focus lens on a DX body (I shoot a D7000), so don't expect to get wide angle shots. However, the resolution is very high and chromatic aberration is very low, even on a DX camera. You can't beat the price and this lens is ideal for super high res portrait photography. I love the f1.8 maximum aperture and focus is very fast and accurate.

My go-to lens!5 Posted by: from: on This is my favourite lens to use and is the best bang for your buck. I find pictures at f/1.8 a little too soft for me, but this lens really shines stopped down. If you're using a crop body it can be a bit too tight a focal length at times, but I would not pass it up unless you're using a D3X00/D5X00 body (it won't autofocus with those bodies).

An amazing prime lens.5 Posted by: from: on This is what they call the "Nifty Fifty" and for good reason! With a max aperture of f1.8, this is an essential lens for shooting in low light situations. It is my lens of choice for techniques such as light painting. Please keep in mind that this is a prime lens and, therefore, you have to physically move closer or further from your subject to achieve the framing that you desire. The only downsides that I have with it is that I have to be too close to my subjects for macros, while I have my extension tubes attached, and it will not auto focus on my camera, the Nikon D3300 (which really isn't a downside for me; as I will only use manual focus, but just about every other photographer that I know insists on having the option available). Lastly, price is a great selling point, $139 "out the door' for an authentic Nikkor lens!!!!

Great lens for beginner.4 Posted by: from: on I really like this lens and the way it looks. Great in low light. I like that it looks like the older manual lens but it's auto focus as well as manual. Overall this is a great portrait and close up lens.
