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

    Great Bokeh, Great in Low Light

    Exceeded my expectations with its low light and bokeh capabilities. It fit great in my D850. Head mention that only because I returned the $219 1.8f 50mm lens because it was so tight it wouldn't fit and I didn't want to force it.

    Great lens. Wide open, the DOF and Bokeh are very impressive. Wondering why I waited so long to pick this lens up.

    This is truly a Versital lens, capable of many shots in a short period of time. Very fast aperture makes it fun to capture all your moments.

    This is my everything lens. I've been traveling and this lens stays on my camera probably 85% of the time. It takes such beautifully clear pictures and the bokeh is dreamy : @@@@@@@

    I recently made a significant upgrade to my camera body. My 50 was my baby on my old body and is still as amazing as ever in the D850. It is very versatile and has a gorgeous bokeh.

    Although this lens is for a full frame camera, it still kicks butt on an crop sensor camera. At f/1.4 it still lets in plenty of light and creates some very nice bokeh. This lens has been great for street and portrait photography.

    So happy I purchased this lens. It has a fast focus, performs excellently in low light, and creates a beautiful bokeh effect and makes backgrounds just wash away in a fantastic blur. definitely worth it's value.

    I love the bokeh this lens produces. I use this for portraits and everyday life in my house to capture special moments with great details. I am glad I went with this lens over the f/1.8

    This is one of the lens to own for Nikon shooters. It will make your photos pop with good depth of field/bokeh. Highly recommended

    I was hesitant to buy this lens, however I am very happy that I did! This lens is excellent for portraits, and has the ability to achieve the bokeh needed for amazing portraits. This lens is also great for low-light areas, as I used it in a museum with little light and still achieved great photos (with a little trial and error).

    The lens itself is terrific- light, quick, good bokeh. Advertised in the weekly flyer and as a Deal of the Day, no stores within 100 miles ever had it in stock. I had to order it, then, when that one arrived with internal damage, I had to have another one transferred from another store. Once I finally got it, I've been quite happy with it.
