Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Grandparent Lens Love this for taking pictures of my Grandson. Very sharp, even at F1.4. Love being able to take pictures inside in low light, and not having to use a flash, I like to avoid flash around little ones and around the family. The 50MM focal length is perfect on a FX camera. It is small, so it is easy to carry around . I find that it is not the fasted focusing lens, but it is still fast enough. If I pre-focus I don't find I miss anything. My only regret is not getting it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lense I used this for portraits and wedding pics. Works well with my D7200. You even get more zoom with the DX cameras. I would recommend this lens for anyone who wants to do outdoor portraits. Works fantastic with great detail and bokeh. The background blur is great for a detail subject.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still my "go to" lens After eight years and over a hundred thousand images, the 50mm 1.4 is still the lens I reach for most often, and (along with my 20mm 1.8 and 85mm 1.8) one of the three lenses I just can't imagine living without. It's a little soft wide open, but I'm an automotive photographer trying to convey emotion, not a pixel peeper, and at f/1.4 I think this lens is soft in an extremely pleasing and beautiful way. (My attached sample images were all shot at 1.4). I love the look so much I find myself shooting it wide open a lot. A LOT. But of course, when stopped down a bit it's tack sharp edge to edge. Much has been said about the (excellent) 50mm 1.8, but even with the exemplary high-ISO performance of today's Nikons, having the extra speed on hand can be tremendously helpful in low light situations, and if this lens ever gives up the ghost, I'll replace it with another 1.4, not a 1.8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection "I bought this to put on a D600. It's never left the camera. Walk around street, family, get togethers, grand kids. They don't come any better. And no spot issues with D600 since it was serviced."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Eveyday Walkaround Lens Ever since I purchased the 50mm f/1.4G, it has become my everyday lens for walking around. It is small and light so doesn't weigh me down. I can get shallow depth of field to focus on the eyes of my subject sharp and crisp while letting the rest soften out of focus and the background smooth in bokeh. The autofocus isn't as fast as the other Nikon primes I have, but it is fast enough that I use it photographing indoor sports using available light. I've had this lens for almost two years now and is one of my most heavily used lenses. I am pleased with the images the 50mm f/1.4G captures no matter what aperture I use because the results are clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Sharp! I got this as my first lens for Nikon D750. It's a great lens especially for people like me who are coming to FX format from DX cameras and cheap zoom lenses (Nikon D5300). I find I have to step AWAY from whatever I'm shooting because the picture is so much bigger in the viewfinder than with a DX camera. The lens doesn't have VR (stabilzation) so when shooting without a tripod it helps to keep the Shutter Speed close to the Focal Distance (1/50). This lens deserves all the kudos because it's 1) Light 2) Tack Sharp 3) Creates excellent Bokeh and of course 4) Excellent in Low Light Conditions. You will love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible. The clarity of this lens is breathtaking, the speed is nothing but mandatory. This lens has by far exceeded my expectations.
