Pros

Cons

  • Super slow focus and hardly ever got the focus right and it felt it's stuck and can't pass certain range until I manually twist the focus ring to adjust that stuck up area.Andy

    This lens is a great value and is great for very low light conditions. The small depth-of-field is optimal for portraits.

    I was looking for a lens to help me capture images in low lighting situations and this lens is very good for that. I would recommend it if you have a similar need.

    Excellent Lens

    This lens takes portraits and pictures with low light with no issues. The one thing to keep in mind is that this lens is fixed, meaning no zooming in and out (your feet will be doing the zooming).

    Excellent lens for portraits and low light. the 1.4 nails it. This is a good lens on my D7100. I had the 1.8 and needed a 1.4 for even better low light situations.

    Great lens for low light settings Candlelight church photos twilight and dawn. Anywhere you do not need a flash. I wish I purchased the lens from the beginning. Lightweight is a big plus.

    I know there's a 1.8f out there but don't settle for it. Take the extra step and go with the 1.4f I promise you won't regret it. After all you can still choose smaller apertures with this lens.

    This lens is my everyday go to. It’s sharp as a knife and it will not disappoint. I have both this one and the 1.4 and in my opinion this one is the best by far.

    The 50mm , 1.4 is a great lens to have in you bag at all times. This lens give me a 1.4 aperture giving me the light and separation needed to produce exceptional images.

    Fast and sure. As with any prime lens, you need to have an eye for a good shot. If you have the lighting and an interesting subject, this lens will capture it in perfection.

    With a D810 and this lens, you can lock yourself in the closet after midnight with all the lights out and still get great pictures!

    I've used an f/1.8 for years, and finally upgraded to the f/1.4. I can't believe I waited so long! The shallow depth of field is a dream. Favorite lens.
