5.0 out of 5 stars Nikkor Prime 50mm lens, 11 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D Lens (Camera)
I was looking to improve the depth of field in some my shots of small scale models and reading the reviews of this product thought a prime lens was the way to go. The lens I had on the camera (Nikon D40x) was the standard 18 - 55 kit lens which has done a grand job up to now.

Would the reviewers whose accounts prompted me to buy this, cheap by most standards, lens have me wasting my money? Heck no....! Because I researched first, the fact it didn't auto focus didn't trouble me at all and the work around to give the full F stop range is similarly no problem either. I am getting cracking pictures from this little beauty and have not had the kit lens on since I got the prime. I may even start playing around with raw images again.

Super buy and definitely worth the money paid.

Can you use this lens on a Nikon d3100? Thanks Emma

I imagine you can as most of the Nikon lenses seem to be interchangable. It is always worth checking your camera's user guide (if you don't have it to hand google it and you'll get a download from somewhere) This lens works fine on my D40x except no auto focus which is no great shakes. Still good value for money. Depth of field better than the kit lens that came with my camera.

I hope this helps you a bit but do read your user guide.

cheers

Yes, you can use this lens with the Nikon D3100, but be aware the autofocus will not work. You will need to manually focus the lens and check for focus in the eye-piece focus verifier. It will take a little getting used to, but the results for portraits are awesome. Good luck
