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

    I can't say enough about how well this 50mm performs. My pics are amazingly sharp & sometimes even have a slightly cinematic feel. Each picture I've taken & posted on my fb page have received tons of compliments & good feedback. As I'm just beginning my photography journey to becoming a full fledged professional this is turning out to be a fantastic lens to help me reach that goal.

    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'm using this as a portrait lens on my DX Nikon D500 (equivalent to 80mm). This lens is small but produces mighty results. Images are pin sharp where you want them to be and super smoothly blurry with remarkable bokeh everywhere else (outside of the focal plane).

    When I started out my photography business, I went with the 50 1.8. Since upgrading to the 1.4, I've been more pleased than ever with my results. This lens is sharp and fast, and is a must buy for any professional who uses prime lenses.

    This is one of the best prime lenses Anyone can use for a first time prime lens user. Also if you are a student like me, this will save you a lot of money and get high quality images from nikon dslr's. Although sony lenses are more of the high technology generation, the nikon Af-s 1.4g lens is one comparison that will not disappoint.
