With a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, this is a great lens for low-light situations or when shallow depth of field is required. An aspherical lens element reduces aberrations and increases resolution, and Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) delivers whisper-quiet operation.
The retro design pays homage to vintage NIKKOR lenses and perfectly complements the looks of the Nikon Df.

Having had the 35mm f/1.8 DX lens for a while and being really pleased with that, I wanted that bit more focal length (knowing that it's equivalent to 75mm on my D3300), but didn't want to go as far as the 85mm (rather save for a decent 70-200mm)
When it was delivered, I immediately had to give it a quick try out...... resulting quick snaps in auto, aperture priority and shutter priority, as well as a few test shots in various preset modes were all absolutely stunning! Beautiful, crisp and sharp detail, perfect colours, smooth bokeh, no CA to be seen wide open or stopped down, absolutely no apparent vignetting throughout the aperture range either with or without the hood attached, fast and precise autofocus - what more could one ask from a lens?!
OK, so it's not "pro" quality but it feels and looks well built, handles nicely, isn't too heavy or at all bulky with smooth manual focus and superb low light results. I can see this lens pretty much staying on my camera for most occasions. Looking forward to a LOT of shooting with it - can't wait to use it "in anger"!!
Anyone who has "issues" with this lens must, quite simply, either not know what they're doing or have received a poor copy and really ought to just get it replaced/exchanged.
Personally, I don't think you'll find better glass for the money!!
You won't get this kind of image quality in a zoom lens for under a grand. Obviously you are suck at 50mm here and that's why it's so cheap but it's unbeatable for portraits and street photography. The best lens I have ever bought without doubt.
Af works perfectly on the camera and it's great for portraits (humans and animals) I've even used it to shoot down at my local CrossFit gym getting some fantastic shots.
A great purchase after the kit lens.
The lens has a fairly low profile to it and very little weight compared to some of the bulkier lenses I use. This is by far the sharpest lens that I have in my collection and it is great in low light conditions. Superb price and a must have lens, you won't be disappointed.
I never consider myself to be a professional photographer to be honest, I just like taking a nice family photos.
After signing myself up for ClickLoveGrow enthusiast photographer course I was recommended to buy this lens, omg! the best money ever spent!
at first I went for basic 50 mm D series (but later on I have read the reviews saying it would not focus on my Nikon D3100) I have cancelled the order and added 50% more money to buy this one, I do not regret it!
If you are a beginner and are fed up of taking average pictures - buy this lens!
Images attached to my review are all taken in auto mode.
The thing you need to know is that it does not have zoom, so it's better for portraits I guess.
I just got it and I already love it!
My only regret is that nobody has told me about it earlier.
if you love nice pictures do not think twice! get it!
For most of the range, it's a perfectly decent lens. The pictures are sharp, and bright looking. It focuses quickly and quietly too, which is good. The grumble occurs at f1.8. At f1.8, there's vignetting and distortion is more noticeable, while the bokeh isn't as much of a step up from the Olympus 4/3 camera I was using. I thought it might be me (I don't claim to be good), but others have noticed it too.
This said, it's perfectly good for f-stops above 2.2, and if you use Lightroom you can get rid of the vignetting and distortion anyway, so it's not like it's a huge issue.
Oh and another thing, it's a third of the price of the f1.4, so you've got to ask yourself, is this something I can live with, given the price differential, compared to the f1.4?
The only drawback is the immense amount of chromatic aberration at f/1.8 aperture. But then again, it's probably the cheapest auto focusing prime lens so don't expect perfection.
I would still highly recommend it.
