Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Dont let the Price or Weight Fool you, this lens holds its own!" "I purchased this Portrait lens from your Church St location in Toronto, Ont as a birthday gift to myself. Upon opening the box, the lens sure doesnt feel like much (with its compact size and plastic housing, it is extremely lightweight compared to a stock 18-55 lens) But I am extremely impressed by the speed of the lens and the image quality. The lens does autofocus with my D90 thanks to the focusing motor located inside the camera. Super crisp images and the portraits turn out amazing! This lens is probably the best bag for the buck over other more expensive portrait lenses!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "one of those must-haves, ya know?" "It's noisy, and it has cheap-looking shiny plastic. It's a bit flimsy, doesn't have the internal SWM, doesn't have VR, doesn't have zoom capabilities, doesn't have ""M/A"" --- who cares. I toss it around as if it were putty (well, not really, but you get the picture). You buy this lens for its creative potential -- it really brings out the SLR qualities and characteristics you may be aiming for. I use it a lot for abstract type shots, but I heard it makes a great portrait lens. It's sharp, it's fast, it's compact, it's light, it's affordable -- the 50-mil is one of those must-haves."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable for the price "I picked this lens up after owning the Nikon 35mm f1.8 for a few months - I wanted this lens to help with portraits. Its very robust feeling, and quite sharp, although the focus isn't quite as precise as the AF-S motors in the 35mm lens (I am using the in-body motors of my D90). For the price, its easy to add this to your roster of lenses and its great for taking portraits of kids/animals without getting so close to them as to disturb or distract them."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Great DX portrait lens, if a touch outdated" "The good: Optically excellent in all respects. Makes a nice close portrait lens on DX. Build quality is decent, although not up to the standards of Canon's L or Nikon's older manual versions. The bad: Focus gearing is a bit on the slow side for such a small lens (~4 turns for macro to infinity). Nikon Canada's MSRP might be a bit high for a simple, older, non-SWM design of this build quality."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must have for every photographer "This is just a light and fun lens to use. It gives more creative control with great depth of field control with f1.8. Great portrait lens on a cropped sensor camera and a great normal lens on a full frame sensor. It is a very sharp lens and allows you to shoot in lower lighting conditions. THe view finder is also nice and bright with this lens on. The build quality is a also very good. It is the older focus system and it this is the only area I see a weakness in. It still focuses pretty fast but you have to switch it from auto to manual unlike the newer lenses. Regardless I use this lens frequently and for many uses. I find it is also handy to have a prime lens when you are feeling creative because it forces you to ""zoom with your feet"" and I always end up with interesting images I may not have captured if I had my zoom lens on. It is a great addition to the bag."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lens for the Price "Bought this lens a month or so after I bought my D90. With the autofocus motor that is in the D90 is allowed me to buy the AF D lens and have autofocus, which would not be available with the D3100 or D5100. Great lens for portraits, and landscapes, haven't had time to travel much, waiting for the Autumn colours to get some nice shots."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Great lens, Amazing price!" "Bought this lens when I upgraded from DX to FX to try out on my new FX camera. It was also the first prime lens I have owned. This is probably one of the cheapest lenses you can buy yet it is fast, super sharp and light. Auto-focus works well on any camera body that has a built in focusing motor so check to make sure your camera has a built in focus motor before you buy, otherwise you would have to manual focus. I have used this lens for regular snapshots when I don't need a zoom, for panoramic shots using a specialized panoramic tripod head, and for macro shots when combined with extension tubes. The detail and sharpness blew me away when I used this lens for panoramic shots (stitching from 5 to 10 shots together to create a wide image). The only reason I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars is because I think it should have come with a lens hood, rather than having to purchase it separately. Overall an excellent lens. Can't go wrong on price and IQ - a great deal!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The foundation. "I don't know why more camera's aren't sold stock with this lens. This is gear 101, a must have beginner or advanced. If you feel like splurging go for the quicker f1.4 model, but overall I have never been let down by this lens. The quality of the construction alone is superb."
