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

    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.

    I got this lens so that I could shoot at night, and it has become one of my favorites. It's great for portraits and low light settings. All of the pictures I've taken with it have come out amazing.

    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.

    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.

    I replaced my 50mm f/1.4D with this 1.4G. The 1.4G is sharper and has better contrast

    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).

    We've been eyeing this for some time now and Best Buy finally had a decent sale so we pulled the trigger. Great in low-light settings being a f1.4. Overall really great lens, couldn't be happier with our purchase.

    I bought this lens after renting lenses a couple of times from a local camera shop. The kit lens that came with my Nikon D7500 is excellent, but didn't have a wide enough aperture for indoor candid shots of the kiddos. This lens does a great job.
