Pros: Fast, Tiny, Usability on both FX and DX, bokeh, price, sharpness

Cons: Old style AF, lots of plastic, possibly lack of f22, lenshood not supplied

Opinion: For the price used you cannot get a better f1.4 Nikkor lens. The newer 'G' series no doubt better mechanically but is bigger and more expensive. Good to use manual focus, just as well as old screw-drive AF is slow and a little noisy. A bit soft at maximum aperture, though this makes good for flattering portraits. Excellent bokeh with such subjects. From f2.8 the lens is bitingly sharp with excellent contrast. The tiny size and weight allows you to put it in a pocket, so you can always have a fast lens with you. The lens also works well with an extension tube-s, allowing extreme macro, but only for subjects you can get close to. I bought a collapsible rubber Hama lenshood for 10 pounds sterling from Amazon which works well and really can help with ghosting and flare as the largish front element does catch stray light easily. Overall: A good investment as always useful and nothing to go wrong and guaranteed compatibility with all Nikon DSLRs. My score 8/10

Pros: Brightness, lightness

Cons: Heavy overexposure at least 2 stops

Opinion: A lens that you should have in your kit: affordable price, extreme lightness and small size. All combined with a typical D-series rendering, pasty, warm colors, always rich shades, deep shadows, sense of three-dimensionality. As previously written, it tends to overexpane quite clearly, at least a couple of stops which can be a problem when changing different goals in succession and speed. But the final yield is undoubtedly very good overall: decent up to f2.8 excellent from 5.6 up.

Pros: Compactness, Brightness, Great Flooring

Cons: Unclear at 1.4, mediocre; 1.8 to 2.2, acceptable-good more closed

Opinion: Recently purchased to cope with the unlighted situations. You have to prosine pp so maybe you might as well take away noise using less bright lenses. It certainly doesn't hold up very well the 36 Mpix of the D800... It should be used in an artistic way, even if FX is a bit short and if you make the very first floor you risk the noses. The fine calibration of the af takes to different values between the distance of 50-60 cm to that of 1.5-2 m (beyond it makes no sense) because it does not solve the Mpix. I do not know if on the ultra resolute reflex is to be recommended except for its extreme compactness. Unfortunately, I don't know the competitors to make comparisons. Update in progress: With a fine AF calibration I was able to achieve discrete results in terms of sharpness. 36 Mpix (see photos of the cropped cat). It begins to give me satisfaction and like me especially in the three-dimensionality that transmits the detachment of the plans. Used, certainly recommended

Pros: Blur, sharpen for me even at full aperture, price, compact, yield

Cons: If we want to look for the NIT, not considering the price, af a bit noisy and not very fast

Opinion: A lens that I recommend to everyone, very compact and excellent efficiency. As mentioned in the pros, lots of quality at a price of used really trivial for a perspective of this kind. Ideal to take with you traveling for compactness, it can get a little long for street but when used on old FF sensors from 12mpx Nikon you will struggle to take it off like so many other D series lenses. Conclusion, without many words and frills, leaving the time finding and make us lose the sense of understanding photography as an artistic form, for me is a BEST BUY.

Pros: quality / price ratio, yield

Cons: tends to overexpose at least 1/2 stop

Opinion: Purchased used in physical store at a great price. Objective practically as new. Used on my nikon d7100 I find it amazing, especially in interiors. It holds very well the 24 mpx of my car. Great for half-length portraits, not suitable due to distortion for close-ups. I also use it in landscapes. In outdoor light it tends to overexpose at least half a stop, so much so that by now imposed compensation by default. A bit 'soft to TA but very clear already at f / 1.8. My specimen did not come with the hood. I bought a non-original rubber that performs well to its function and that, contrary to the original, can be folded on the optics with a better portability. Highly recommended for those looking for a fixed 50. The used prices are very affordable and if you are lucky enough to find one in good condition it is to be taken on the fly.
