Cool Lens....Fast lense...best 50mm for the buck, crazy sharp, 1.8 is good for low light and to use for a shallow DoF and in my oppinion is the best lens to start with for a DX body, so you learn how to possition your self....Not much new to say, that others have not already, but itt creates excellent bokeh, Perfect as an everyday lens for landscapes, portraits, dim environments, astrophotography etc.

Love it!...Good lens...the lens is nice but takes much better outdoor then indoor shots which is a little upsetting since I bought it for my indoor shots but overall it seems to be a good lens just not as awesome I had heard it was....50mm is a good focal length for portraits though, and this lens can focus on something as close as a foot away from the camera so you can get some good closeups.

Good Lens...Good item...After never owning a camera like this where you have the detachable lenses I think, in fact I know that I made an awesome choice and and I am extremely happy and ecstatic with the purchase I made....The # 1 comment I have received when people look at the photos is "I can not believe how close you were to the animals" - now I am brave but not that brave!!

Good Lens!...Great glass...If for example you have the 16-50mm zoom lens (actually in 35mm format a 25-75mm) and most of your shots fit into the far end of this lens at 40 to 50mm framing -- this lens is faster (superior in low light) and clearer (better optics as a prime lens)....It has a much larger aperture than the lens that came with the camera so allows for very nice portraits with great bokeh.

Great one....Great Buy...You can have a faster shutter speed....But I keep this lens on my camera at all times indoors so I can finally catch those shots of the kids running around being adorable or doing something goofy and not have to worry about flash or overexposed pictures or out of focus pictures because the kit lens was not able to keep up or was not open wide enough to take a good shot.
