- Amazing lens- July 24, 2015
The reason I love this lens is for the 1.8 max aperture. I find myself shooting in dim lighting situations where I need a fast shutter speed to catch moving objects. Also, when doing portrait work I've found that I get a nice blurred background with this lens too! With this lens I can achieve a great exposure without bumping up my ISO's to a crazy level just to see the image with good light. I like the 50mm lens because it forces me to try harder to get a good crop when I'm taking the photo rather than when I get to the computer and edit! You could spend double the price to get the 1.4 max aperture but I don't think it's that necessary.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great lens for the price that should be considered- October 24, 2020
So, I love, love this lens. It’s a great buy for what it can do. I use it on my D7500, so the DX format for Nikon’s F Mount is even better because I get to use the very nice sweet spot of the glass. The DX format gives me a very nice 75mm lens for great portrait shooting. I think I need the 35mm next. LOL. Now, if you want the best, then you’ll need to fork out a bit over 2 times the cash for the 50mm f/1.4 lens. That is a much better lens for sure, but I feel this f/1.8 is a great buy for what it can do. It’s a bit lighter and it’s not weather sealed like some of the other really high end Nikon lenses that cost $1000+ to $2000+. I’m okay with that for what I get.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
