Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing "The greatest little lens you can buy. Of all the ""nifty fifties"" out there this is absolutely the best. With the addition of the aspherical lens element, Nikon has taken this 50mm 1.8 to the next level. The picture quality is breathtaking, focusing is lightening quick. The bokeh is unreal, wide open at 1.8 the background doesn't even exist anymore. Would make a great portrait lens, great addition to any kit professional or hobbyist. 58mm filter thread is convenient, lens hood is included as well as a lens pouch for storage. This is simply the most amazing lens for the money you will find. Highly recommended, cheers"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Popular Focal Length "I recomend this lens as a fist purchase for anyone making the jump from cropped to full frame photography. This is an FX lens so if you are rocking a cropped DX sensor then this is a great portrait lens although there are better DX portrait lenses for less money. This lens is inexpensive compared to most FX lenses. This lens is quiet. This lens is tack sharp on my D700 stopped down just a bit. I use this lens to take my detail shots at weddings and events. I use my 35mm for PJ type event shots and my 85mm for portraits. But if I could have only one focal length I would get this lens."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't seem to put it down! "All I can say is wow. After hearing people rave about this lens forever, I decided that it would be a good addition to my collection - and boy was I right. The awesome thing about this lens is that fact that it is 50mm - the closest focal distance to the human eye. There-for, it sees almost what you see. Because of the compact design, the 50mm 1.8 G is very versatile, along with the included lens hood, you can shoot in just about any conditions. The good sized tactile white dot is perfect for mounting in low light. Comes with a lens bag (that will never be used by me) and a 5 year Nikon warranty."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar Aperture "This is the first lens I purchased for my camera. As a fine-art photographer I was looking for something that had a wide range of aperture and a tight focal length. I was happy that this model was less expensive than the similar f/1.4 while still performing fantastically. The auto-focus is exceptional and hasn't given me problems. The physical lens is easy to put on and take off because the white placing dot is large and elevated slightly off the lens. I always get breathtaking images when I use this!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! "This lens should be in every bag! Light, small, extremely good quality even wide open. I shoot for a newspaper and do most of my work with (DX) zoom lenses, but for concerts or any performances on stage this lens is perfect, the quality is outstanding. A must have when you want to work with natural light, for street photography or for portraits. It's very affordable and small and light enough to just drop it in you bag, get it today!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon 50mm G lens "A classic 50mm is a lens that every photographer should own. The 50mm f/1.8G from Nikon is an incredibly sharp prime lens. Also, the Silent wave motor is very fast, accurate and VERY silent! The feel of the lens is very nice in the hands with exceptional build quality. The wide aperture is very very nice and produces absolutely wonderful bokeh and is an excellent lens to use in low lights, for portraiture and just simply makes an excellent all around lens."
Date published: 2014-02-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Portrait Lens "Although no longer a normal focal length on crop sensor cameras, it serves as an awesome portrait lens. The bokeh is much better than the older D version, less prone to flare and ghosting, and focusing is much quieter. Build quality is more than a step up from its predecessor, with good plastics, and weather sealing gasket. Although the price is more than the D, I find it totally worth the difference!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pictures are crisp! I've been using the kit lens and today, going into Henry's thought I'd inquire about another lens....the staff was excellent and helped me with my decision on this one. I've been playing around with it and its awesome!! Price was really reasonable as well. I'm so happy!
