    Great prime lens!

    A great lens that everyone should have in their arsenal! This 50mm f1.8 prime is a fantastic lens for the price, the depth of field and sharpness are amazing. If you're in the market for an affordable lens or looking for a lens to complement your new FX or DX DSLR, without breaking the bank, then this is the lens for you!

    My go to lens

    Overall, I've taken some awesome portraits with this lens that look like magazine quality photos although they were just real quick snap shots. They were taken in low light, I wasn't using flash and the subject wasn't posing but they were great! Since then, I've used it at parties, great for the kids. Focus is very quick with this lens and no image stabilization necessary as the lens is that fast.---The worst thing about this lens is, well, me. I'm an amateur photographer and I know this lens (and my camera) are capable of great images. Looking forward to learning more, building my cache of equipment and lighting modifiers, but I totally love this lens and have been using it over the kit lens for a while now. The only time I put the kit on is for scenery or anything where I need a wider angle.

    LOVE this lens

    Before this lens, I'd always have my heavy 18-140mm attached to my camera, but since purchasing this lens, it's my MAIN go to lens and is 95% of the time the one I've got on my camera. It's very light and my neck doesn't ache after an hour long shoot. I opted to go with the 1.8G vs the 1.4G for price but I am so SO happy that I went with the 1.8G. The crisp pictures and depth of field is beautiful! The bokah is incredible and I just absolutely love this lens. Being a portrait photographer, this is an essential lens to have! I have an 85mm as well that I love for senior pictures and close up head shots, but for couples, small families, and just everyday shooting, this is the lens for you!!
