    This is a good quality lens at an affordable price. The technology may be 20+ years old but as they say "they don't make them like they used to". The wide aperture ensures excellent depth of field control, achieving the blurred background is almost too easy. The lens performs well under reduced light, when a wide aperture is selected moderate shutter speeds are maintained reducing the likelihood of camera shake. I use this lens for portraits, landscapes and it even works well as a macro lens.

    I bought this lens for Nikon D5100 and there are a few points to note. This lens will not auto focus on d3000/3100 or D5000/5100 as it has no in built motor. However enable the rangefinder function on the camera and manual focusing can be achieved quickly and accurately. Although the lens has an aperture ring, lock this at the minimum setting (f 22) before attaching the lens to the camera, and the aperture setting is controlled from the camera. Lastly due to smaller dx sensor this 50mm lens will act as a short telephoto no bad thing however you may have to zoom with your feet more.

    I'll conclude by saying that this is probably the best quality and value consumer nikkor lens out there: brilliant optics, vivid colours and bokeh. If you can live with manual focus on the d3000/d5000 systems then you will not regret buying this!

    Agree with all that's been said. I've used this Gem of a lense on the D40 & more recently the D300. My take relates to JPEG image quality, I seldom shoot RAW mode. On either Nikon body the results are pin sharp, it's an excellent portrait lens. Close work is limited to about 2ft from the subject matter, the background blur in such circumstances is beautifully rendered. Focus is manual only on the D40, no real hassle using the focus ring until the 'focus OK' viewfinder indicator shows. The f1.8 allows freedom from flash in dim light situations, a real bonus. No issues with either build or image quality. Excellent 'bang for buck' - get a neutral filter at the same time, also good value from Amazon.

    I got this today from Amazon and as always delivered quickly and efficiently.

    Well, I put it straight on my Nikon D7000 and tried some various shots. One thing I noticed was the sharpness of the pictures. I know there is a newer version DX "G" but for the cost of this lens (88 pounds) it is stunning value. I have the (latest) current 35mm DX f1.8 lens (at twice the price) and even though this lens is fabulous I think that this one is maybe even better!!! It focuses very quickly and smoothly too. For the money this is a fantastic lens for the D7000. It is a well balanced lens on my D7000 and would be on any D3000 to D7000 (note on the D3000,5000 series it will not autofocus) I did take off the MB 11 battery grip off after adding this lens to give the camera a better feel in my hands, it was just a little too back heavy with the grip on. I am sure the newer version is even better and from the research I have done I would say it is, but when you are paying less than 90 quid you need to buy this if you are considering a 50mm lens I doubt the new one is twice as good as the price is 100 quid more. I can't comment on the f1.4 versions but unless you really need that extra stop but pay 150 to 250 quid more then I wouldn't bother!
    We are so used to having a zoom lens for convenience, I have the 16-85mm dx, 55-200mm DX (kit lens from my D5000) but you will probably keep this lens on and start to walk forwards or backwards to get the shot. Bokeh is nice too. Go out and get one and ENJOY!

    Firstly this lens is as sharp as a tack, and the image quality could not be better if they tried. If you're looking for results then you'll be hard pressed to find a better 50mm lens at ANY price.

    The build quality is very plasticky. Is this a problem? No. How much rough'n'tough do you expose your equipment to on a daily basis? Besides, the compact build is so tight that I doubt this lens would break if you dropped it!

    The autofocus is surprisingly loud for such a small lens, but it is snappy and always gets it right!

    I'd highly recommend this lens to everyone, its a fantastic addition and at such a low price it's definitely worth more than you pay for it!

    I've been seduced by ultrazoom lenses and cameras over the years and I had forgotten how good photography felt when you move you body rather than zoom in and out with your lens.

    The other reviews quite rightly highlight the excellent performance of the wide range of aperture settings from 1.8 to 22 so I don't want to repeat what they have said.

    I've been using my D300 with an 18-200mm lens for most of the time - occasionally swapping for a wide angle 10-20mm lens when needed. Both are fairly heavy, but very versatile. The 50mm is the first prime lens I have used since I started digital photography some 7 years ago.

    My whole attitude to the subject matter changes when I can't just zoom in and out, I find myself composing much more interesting shots. This has been a great addition for my DSLR.

    Photographers often get very excited about 50mm lenses.

    So why the fuss about the Nikon 50mm 1.8 D AF?

    Firstly, the 50mm 1.8 is a good introduction into the world of "prime" i.e. not zoom, lenses. Primes lenses are valued because there is no optical compromise made while trying to design a lens which will work at say, 16mm as well as at 85mm.

    Historically prime lenses like the 50mm have been sharper and superior to zoom lenses, and come at a higher cost - especially if you have to buy two or three to get the focal flexibility a single zoom lens would cover.

    But unlike many primes, the 50mm is very affordable. It's also very small and light, tucking neatly into a camera bag or pocket, meaning it's not a hassle to lug around and will always be handy.

    It's light because it's mainly made from plastic, although the important thing, the mount, is hard wearing metal and the plastic is tough and feels sturdy. Plus, with a lens this small, materials are of slightly less importance.

    It's size means it's very low-profile when mounted on the camera, making it a little less frightening than a big zoom lens.

    Photographers also like as much light let into the camera as possible an again the 50mm gives a cheap entry into the world of "fast" lenses. The lens is certainly fast and sharp, although the wide apertures you'll be able to enjoy also sees the pay off of razor thing depth of field, so keeping focus sharp and on the right point is a challenge.

    Photographers also rated 50mm lenses because on old 35mm cameras they gave a field of view about the same as the human eye.
