Great lens

by Ryan on 9/15/2011

For two years I used the 18-200mm exclusively on my D300. I bought this as a compliment for low light and portrait photos. The Bokeh on this lens is unreal at f/1.4. This is a full frame lens, so on a DX it should actually be about 75mm focal length, but regardless is a high quality optic for low light shooting. I'd recommend checking out KenRockwell.com for a full review of lenses and camera equipment. Read More

Great optics

on 6/11/2012

After reading a bunch of reviews on this lens, testing the Nikkor 50mm 1.8D lens, testing the Sigma 1.4 EX HSM, this lens wins hands down, and I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a 50mm for Nikon. This lens beats both the 50mm 1.8 and the Sigma in sharpness, quietness, and accuracy. The Sigma has some amazing color and contrast, but it DOES have focusing issues. It could be that I got one of their bad copies but its a huge hassle and not worth the time and effort to hunt down a good copy or to get Sigma to fix the problem. I have had no problems with the Nikkor 50mm 1.4G, its great in low-light, beautiful bokeh, nice color and contrast. I wish it were a bit faster in locking autofocus, but its fast enough, so I gave it 5 stars. Don't let the price scare you. Canon's best 50mm is $1,000 more, this lens is fairly inexpensive.

Product Overview

Ideal for travel, event, environmental and general photography in a wide variety of conditions, with superb optical formula and an ultra-fast f/1.4 maximum aperture. Perfect for low-light conditions, an ideal portrait lens when used on a Nikon DX-format digital SLR, approximating the angle of view similar to that of a 75mm lens on a Nikon FX-format digital SLR or a 35mm film camera.
