Love it!...Nifty 50...It gives a very nicely effect for blurry backgrounds (don't know the right terminology), and also it forces me to move to get the right spot to get everything in frame....It is a light, clear, bright, fast and accurate focusing lens, even in dark shots on my DSLRs (EOS5D Mark II) But for video users without an external microphone it is nosy.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Lens: Capture important moments in your life with this standard lens, which works with your compatible Canon DSLR EF-mount camera. A circular aperture with 7 blades helps you add creative background blur.
Good one...Best lens...Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Standard Lens: A perfect everyday lens for any photographer, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G offers fast autofocusing combined with an integrated lens coating to deliver clear and crisp images....Ask any SLR shooter, a nifty fifty prime lens has always been in their arsenal from the time they moved up from a kodak (or a smartphone)! Some plastic in this one but it hasn't let me down.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Standard Lens: A perfect everyday lens for any photographer, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G offers fast autofocusing combined with an integrated lens coating to deliver clear and crisp images. The wide-open aperture is ideal for low-light shooting and creating images with beautiful background blur.
Love it...a must buy...Being that it is a prime lens, it provides great picture quality and the fixed focal length really allows you to look at your shot more before actually taking a picture since you need to move closer or farther in order to zoom in or out....The 35mm focal length is perfect for indoors allowing the user to take in subjects, epecially where with a 50mm a wall would have stopped you from backing up any further for the shot, even head shots of people across a table from you as one review mentioned.
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Standard Lens: Whether you're a beginner or professional, you'll love this compact, lightweight lens from Nikon. The normal angle of view captures approximately what the human eye sees, making it a great all-around lens. Plus, the f/1.8 maximum aperture is ideal for creating softly blurred backgrounds and shooting in low light.
Great buy...Love it!...On top of all of that, this lens also includes the STM focus system which allows you to record video and have the lens focus almost completely silent....It has a 4 group optical zoom system and includes a large-diameter element, an aspherical lens element, a UD lens element and enhanced lens coatings for high-contrast, high-resolution images with minimal glare and aberration.
With an STM (stepping motor) and focus mechanism, this Canon EF-S 9519B002 zoom lens allows you to record ultrasharp videos or capture crisp photos using your compatible Canon camera. The UD lens element helps you take highly realistic images.
Nice view...Love it...( I haven't used it at night yet but that's my next project.) The focus is quiet as well, making it nice to use indoors for moments where you don't want to hear the mechanism working....Since these cameras have the cropped sensor, the 50mm lens acts as if it was an 80mm lens, which is good for portrait work, but is too long a lens for using indoors like a birthday party, or in a museum.
Capture stunning images of wide perspectives with this Canon 9522B002 EF-S wide-angle lens that features an aspheric lens element for high image quality from the center to the edges. The circular, 7-blade aperture delivers soft backgrounds.
Fast motor....Love it....I can't use this lens as often wide open as I would like to due to color fringing and other issues associated with wide open shooting, however it is just as good the 1.2L or the 1.8 when stopped down beyond 1.8....I recently got into DSLR filmmaking and totally ignored my colleagues' recommendation that I just buy a camera body without the sub-par quality kit lens.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard Lens: This Canon 50mm lens has an unusually large maximum aperture so you can get detailed pictures even in low light without needing a flash. It's excellent for basic portraits and scenic shots, especially at night.
Sharp lens...Love it!!...I use it outdoors where my primary focus is on longer range pics (ef 70-200 or 100-400 mm) and I want a wider lens available without having to carry the additional weight....I personally use a Zoom H4N recorder with a hot-shoe mount for my audio, and it works great (and doesn't pick up the focusing noise from the lens)....I got this to go with the recent cannon camera package I purchased on black Friday.
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Standard Lens: This standard Canon lens offers high-quality image capturing in a small, lightweight lens body, making it a great companion in crowds and public spaces. Its versatile features and easy portability make it especially suited for basic travel, portraits and memento shots.
Great lens...I love it!!...I used this lens for the first time last weekend at a wedding to capture reception details and it was fabulous!...Metal mount, rear seal gasket, and internal silent wave motor focusing system are a few of the premium features you'll appreciate with this lens.

Capture clear images in dim lighting without a flash with the wide-open aperture. Switch seamlessly from automatic to fine manual focusing so you can ensure every detail is spot on.
Nice Lens!...Great Lens....New to having a DSLR and all, but I like the versatility of taking low light photo's without the harsh lighting that can come with using a flash, which is the main reason I purchased this lens....Pros: + Very fast (f/1.8) + Very sharp pictures (especially when stopped down to f/2.2, f/2.5 or more.) + Great for sport/action photography + Great for indoor and low light situation + Great for portrait + Bokeh is almost as good as many expensive Nikon tele-lens + Fast autofocus + Good for wedding photography (or no-flash event).

Whatever you're shooting, you'll get consistently sharp results at dusk, dawn or even in dim indoor lighting. Weighing just 5.5 oz., it makes a convenient carry-around lens for shooting stills and video.
My favorite!...Love this....While I am by no means an expert, I've got enough of an understand of the technical aspects of shooting that this lens requires a solid grip of aperture, distance/focal-length and focus to ensure that you get the shot you want....It feels incredibly solid, though I do wish it was fully weather-sealed straight out of the box, no filter needed... At this pricepoint it amazes me that Canon can't manage that for their customers.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Standard Lens: This Canon 50mm lens has an unusually large maximum aperture so you can get detailed pictures even in low light and without needing a flash. It is a perfect tool for basic portraits and scenic shots, especially at night.
It's perfect....Awesome Lens...This lens is great in that it covers the full range of focal lengths, has Vibration Reduction, and its quick Auto Focus capability makes using Live View a snap....You can capture great wide angle images at 28mm and zoom in on birds and other wildlife at 300mm and still get great images.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28–300mm f/3.5–5.6G ED VR Standard Zoom Lens: This lens lets you photograph a scene from multiple perspectives, whether you aim to capture the expanse of a bridge or the flight of a bird. The minimum focusing distance of 18 inches lets you can zero in close on your subjects. Its lightweight build and versatility make it an excellent lens for travel photography.
Excellent lens....Love this!...I find that I have to give it a little exposure compensation (+1) with a 160 ISO for most shots to get the exposure where it should be, but the images are nice and sharp....It is my go to lens for sunrise shots and winter landscapes, extended to 85mm gives me a great tight shot when I need it.

Works perfectly...Excellent Lens!!...It's simply a great lens that anyone will enjoy using, especially when viewing the results....i love this it makes me want to sell my 50mm 1.2 to be honest should of gotten this 35 before the 50 ugh but can't complain...anyways the lens is sharp and 1.4 and that what I like sharp lens
