I've been partaking in the world of photography for 35years and when I started out, standard lenses were all f1.8 (or thereabouts) then and all but my last two camera bodies would have come with such as standard.

I had the very capable and tiny 'pancake' f1.8 m/f Nikkor (that I can still use on my full-frame D700) but one day I just wanted handle and feel the classic 50mm Nikkor f1.4. Its use in animation and technical copying were legendary. I saw a documentary on how an older version was used on a Nikon F3 to take the stop-and-go shots on Stephen Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark, before CGI.

I was going to be able to buy into an elite club of photo excellence, for a couple of hundred; a new 'D' A/F one at that.

You always know where you are with this lens. Aside of very few specialist lenses, it is the fastest ever made and the viewfinder image at night is as bright as your own vision. At ANY aperture, including wide open, you get an image bristling with detail that other lenses have to be stopped down to even approach.

With so many 'premium' standard zooms lenses these days weighing as much as the camera, this diminutive but still perfectly handling 50mm feels so refreshingly different. One almost feels liberated. People notice and often remark.

It also makes an exemplary lens for copying one's work, such as mounted prints, due to absolutely zero barrel/pincushion distortion. I've done that to upload them onto my website and for a digital record. Use at least f4 to cover depth of field of the mount. Between f4 and f6.3 the lens is also performing at its best. Add extension tubes and you get an economical but optically uncompromised macro lens.

Can't see the problem the previous buyer had with this lens.
Superb lens, pin sharp, F1.4 for lovely hand held low light shots.
A simple reliable lens. Well worth the money

basically,i had done my reseach on nikon 50mm f1.4 and f1.8 for a month..
if u want a good prime lens, f1.8 is enough for you to choose. the pictures are sharp.but f1.4 is even sharper....
both lens are good for me, if you like long term investment I recommend f1.4...
all are depend on your pocket money...

I am using this Nikon 50mm f/1.4D lens with my Nikon D40. Due to the lack of a focus motor on the body this lens is manual focus only, but otherwise works fine (Metering etc.). Nikon have recently released a f/1.4G model of this lens which will auto-focus on the D40/D60 and should be available around Nov-Dec 2008. Manual focus doesn't bother me so I purchased this lens rather than waiting.

Due to the cropped DX sensor on the D40, this 50mm prime gives approx. 75mm coverage, making it suitable for portraits but makes it a little tricky to get a good shot in a confined room.
As such, I contemplated getting the Sigma 30mm f1.4 EX DC HSM Digital Lens For Nikon Mount in order to get a bit of a wider angle, but decided against due to its weight (430g, as opposed to this lens which is 230g) and price (around £100 more expensive).

I already own the Sigma DC 3,5-6,3/18-200 OS HSM for Nikon which is great as a general purpose lens; my main reason for purchasing this Nikon prime was in order to get a wider aperture (f/1.4) and sharper pictures.

At f/1.4 images can be a tad soft, but at f/1.8 (and especially around f/2-2.8) quality is superb. I'd argue that at f/1.8 the image is sharper than Nikon's other popular prime, the Nikon - AF 50mm F/1.8D Lens. The only other criticism I can find is that it can be prone to lens flare, which is possibly alleviated by getting a petal-hood for it.

Ultimately this is a great prime lens but before purchasing I'd recommend comparing and possibly considering the cheaper Nikon 50mm f/1.8D or the new 50mm f/1.4G which will autofocus on the D40/D60.

I love this lens! Much better construction than the 1.8 version I previously owned. Beautiful smooth bokah, sharp as a tack. An excellent portrait lens of 75mm equivalent on my Nikon D300.
I have nothing but praise for the service I receive from Amazon UK,delivery is always on time and the prices very competitive.

In trying to avoid a lengthy spiel, this lens is simply a must buy.
It spends most of its life attached to a D700 and never fails to produce
amazing shots. If it's between this and the F1.8 then pay a little extra.
Fast and wide open you will get shots that are impossible with bigger,
more expensive glass. Zooms are fantastic but just try a prime lens
and move yourself in and out and up and down.

5 out of 5 for value for money.
Even if it is made in China, and the new AF-S G lens, as well as 35/1.8 and 50/1.8 creates a competitive environment, on FX it is still very, very good.

I'm a professional photographer and this has been my weapon of choice for a few years now. Great for portraits as well as other stuff.
Great depth of field and fast focusing on both D300 and D700 Nikon.
Highly recommended purchase as it's quite cheap for the quality of images it produces.
