Overall great price, too good to pass up. Lens is fun to experiment with.
This lens is great for the price and is ideal for a first "prime" lens. The wide aperture of 1.8 is a great advantage and can produce pictures with a very shallow depth of field, and a small pin point focus. The lens feels very "toy like" and on smaller models such as the 1100D/550D/600D etc it will make the camera feel very light and look more compact. Auto focus is rather sluggish and you will find it easier to take pictures using manual focus when being a bit more creative. Macro capability is poor, which is disappointing but that may not be an issue for some people. The 50mm focus length is more like an 80mm on a cropped sensor and this may be "too close" for some people. Personally i would prefer a 35mm or 24mm but those are out of my price range for now, so i'll make do for the 50mm. If you take self portraits a lot (while holding the camera) it's really not going to be suitable, as it is far too close and becomes irritating. Read full review

Economic fast high quality lens
This is nicely priced superb lens giving excellent contrast and picture quality. It is also very fast enabling low light shooting. Lightweight and small it contributes to easy handling of the camera, Fits on all Nikon SLR cameras film, FX and DX bodies. If I had to take only one lens with my SLR, this would be it, not one of those plastic kit zooms they sell with SLRs these days

Quality Fixed Lens; Takes Beautiful Portraits for a Fantastic Price
I bought this lens for a cheap portrait lens and was not disappointed. For a $100 price tag, the image quality is crisp and the depth of field is fantastic with the f/1.8 high aperture opening. The disadvantages being the lack of support of AF with cameras such as my own D3100, and also with it being a fixed zoom lens. The reason it is a fixed zoom lens is that it is much cheaper to make and allows for the low price tag.

As good a lens as Nikon has ever made, and for a pittance.
This lens is extremely lightweight, but optically similar to the more expensive and heavy Nikkor 50mm f/2. It's only single-coated, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the photographs it takes. Image quality is sharp as a tack from f/2.8 all the way down to f/16. At f/1.8 its performance is fair. It is almost disconcerting having such a small lens on my Nikon F, but the portability means it can be taken in your pocket nearly anywhere. The small focus ring may seem unnatural at first, but the focus is loose, precise, and snappy. A great buy all around, perfect for the lighter, later generation of Nikon manual focus cameras, but if you can find it, go for the Nikkor version, as it is compatible with earlier cameras as well, and with slightly superior optics.

Become a great Photographer you may not have to change your lens
Probably the best all round lens and value for money of it's type . In circles, it is known as the 'nifty fifty' Used for Portraits Landscapes, Cityscapes, Candid shots, you name it this lens could probably do the job. Buying a low end Canon DSLR body you could do no better than buy this lens to compliment the Camera.I know of people who have probably the most expensive canon Body 5D MK111 who use this lens also. I can testify this as I have just been contacted by a magazine and one of my Photographs taken with this lens will be on the front cover! It is Light and with a fabulous f1.8 aperture Lowlight and indoor photography without a flash is a breeze. I would recommend adding a UV Filter (available at little cost on E-BAY) to protect the front lens I cannot think of anything I don't like about this product -In fact it has improved my Photography, due to it being a prime lens YOU have to move to compose the shot no cheating with a zoom kit lens. so eventually you get an eye for composition . Nikon has a good lens to Equal this product the 35mm f1.8 but for Canon this is the one-Enjoy! Read full review
