Over two years with this lens
November 02, 2012
On a DX Nikon body, you can expect great results from this lens. As other reviewers have noted, you could use just this lens and nothing else on a trip around a city or on vacation. Indoors, it can prove to be a little too tight of a crop, but otherwise it works perfectly in low light. I particularly like taking portraits with this lens, as it focuses quickly and produces a nice soft background, especially at F/1.8. The lens also has full time manual override, so even in autofocus mode you can grab the mechanical focus ring and adjust to your liking. Overall, I would give this a 5,the only caveat is that it does not have completely silent focus that many newer lenses have (only an issue with video though). It's a great investment and a great starter lens for those wishing to push the creative boundaries of their SLR.
