What People Say
This is a great lens I will use a lot. I’ve been a fan of 50mm lenses a long time, but this one does great. It’s sharp, fast and compact. The glass is clear and photos shot through it are true. There is some vignetting at the wider apertures with a full-frame sensor, but I like to add vignetting to my photos a lot of the time, anyway. The vignetting is not unlike other 50mm lenses, though and some cameras are capable of canceling it out. It’s my favorite lens already. I’m new to Nikon, but have used a competitor for decades.
This is a very inexpensive lens but don’t let that fool you, this is an excellent lens for portraits or what ever else you wish to use it for, the quality of the images that you can get with this lens is breathtaking, for a lens that’s under $200 you would expect average photos at best but it’s completely the opposite, a great lens for very little money, BUY IT you won’t be disappointed
