ConsNo lens motor

The Nikkor F1.8 50mm is a cheap fixed focal length lens ideal for portraits and low light conditions for Nikon AF DSLR camera bodies. It has no focusing motor of its own and as such it won't work in a Nikon D40, D60, D3000 series, but works like on charm on Nikons that can drive external lenses...

Consnon

I have a 70mm to 300mm Sigma zoom and a 28mm to 80mm sigma zoom and this small standard 50mm lens. The lens costs about £90 new or around the £50 on E Bay. For everyday photography, I don't think it can be beaten. The two main advantages are its size and its maximum aperture of f1.8. For the...

Progreat quality, low price, prime

Consnone

As anyone interested in photography will know - lenses don't come cheap, especially quality lens, except this one. The 50mm 1.8 has a reputation for quality at a reasonable price and it's a reputation well deserved. Yes the 50mm is a 'small' lens but it's a prime lens. Some may find that the need...

“The "Nifty Fifty"”

published 08/07/2009

ProPerfect for photographers on a "budget"

ConsDoes not autofocus on D40, D40x

This is a "prime lens" meaning it has a fixed focal length unlike the typical zoom lens. This is probably one of the best lenses out in the market. Often called the "nifty fifty", it's perfect for family photos, portraiture or low light. It is very cheap but has a good quality build. The reason...

“Perfect manual focus lens”

published 08/03/2014

Proclarity, bokeh, focus

ConsMF only

I bought this lens when I was just starting to figure out how to use my dslr, and it was not difficult to figure out. It is perfect for portraits and nature shots as well. It does not focus well on things less than 5 inches away. However, I believe you can shoot macro with it. While this "human...

ConsCan only go down to f/1.8

I bought this because it was so cheap compared to other wide aperture lenses. It's great for portraits and gives you full control of depth of field. I've got nothing but stunning results from this lens- pin sharp area of focus with a nice bokeh (blurring of background) when I want it. It's also...
