Love it...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.

Plus, the f/1.8 maximum aperture is ideal for creating softly blurred backgrounds and shooting in low light.
Love it!...The 50mm lens from Nikon gives you the very best quality images , of course if accompanied by a great Nikon camera I am using it on my Nikon D2X, it works wonderfully and have taken very high quality pictures.

Its versatile features and easy portability make it especially suited for basic travel, portraits and memento shots.
Awesome lense...Also, this dates from the film days and not the high reflectivity digital image sensors, so if you stop it down to about f - 2.8 you get horrendous veiling and aperture-shaped reflections from the sensor if you have light sources striking the front element on a digital body.
Nikon AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D Standard Lens: The wide-open aperture of this versatile Nikon lens allows you to capture photos in most situations without a flash.

Weighing just 5.5 oz., it makes a convenient carry-around lens for shooting stills and video.
Nice Lens...( I have not used it at night yet but that is my next project.) The focus is quiet as well, making it nice to use indoors for moments where you do not want to hear the mechanism working.
Capture stunning images of wide perspectives with this Canon 9522B002 EF-S wide-angle lens that features an aspheric lens element for high image quality from the center to the edges. The circular, 7-blade aperture delivers soft backgrounds.

Great Lens!...The focus is crisp and fast, while being near silent for those times you want to play with hd video (most are loud enough to be perceptible in the captured audio).
