A cracking quality prime lens with extraordinary low light capability,
I have been after a 50mm prime lens and as a Nikon owner consider the 1.8 and 1.4. In the end, I decided to go for this slightly larger aperture version, as astro photography is something i want to experiment, but i really just wanted it mainly for snapping the kids at play etc, and don't always want to stick a lens weighing a kilo on my camera that already weight a kilo. The lens is tack sharp, and and very sturdy and well built. Easy to manually adjust or readjust focus, or just leave it on auto focus. I found this to focus reasonably fast, however not as fast as the majority of my gold ring lenses. If you are shooting at the wider apertures this may be an issue, as the depth of field is tiny, and you will get the eyes out of focus as people move slightly. I started to use continuous auto focus taking close up portraits of my son. On the whole, this is an amazing piece of glass for the money, but I am not convinced I really needed the 1.4, but its on my camera most of the time i'm around the house. The bokah on this is pretty nice, so lovers of the blurred backgrounds will really like this, with lights squashing out to be appearing mostly rounded and fairly smooth. shooting wide open this is a specialist tool, but on the whole its a nice versatile lens, and would recommend it, but not necessarily over the 1.8 - I would test drive both to work out what works best for yourself.

Superb lens! Each picture had a certain glow to it, great all rounder.
It was a gift for xmas, but of course I had to try it out for myself. What a superb lens! Each picture I took had great depth of field and a dream-like quality to it. Super quiet motor when focus hunting, it is a great all round lens to use.

DO NOT BUY FROM DWI
I have not been able to use my new Nikon D5100 camera and this lense. I purchased it from DWI and the camera came with a faulty battery charger. DWI has totally unacceptable after sales service as I have had the camera for 2 months now and they still have not sent me a new battery charger. I purchased the camera for work projects that I have now had to pay someone else to do. I am extremely unhappy about this ordeal. I DO NOT RECOMMEND DWI TO ANYONE

Great prime lens at a very economical price
I bought this lens to complete my photographic kit, I was after a prime lens and couldn't be happier. brilliant shots and great bokeh, maybe the 35mm F1.4 is a better lens but at a quarter of the price, this lens is perfect !
