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: See previous reviews

Cons: See previous reviews

Opinion: Sometimes it is said that reviews are not very useful because you can find written about everything and the exact opposite. I do not think this is the case with this objective, where opinions are confirmed, and I too find myself completely in it. It is the 50mm Nikon that I prefer, for color rendering and sense of three-dimensionality. Very resolving, aberrations reduce its sharpness to f1.4. While remaining soft, it improves to f2. In this range the blurred is very creamy ! The yield changes from f2.8 onwards where the sharpness reaches very high values. We now come to the flaws. The construction is not really impeccable. After prolonged use over the years I had to replace the focus helicoid, which I would say is quite normal. Overexposure by 1/2 stop, verified both with respect to other lenses and to external light meter. It suffers from parasitic lights in "not good" conditions, for example outdoors in the central hours with humidity and overcast sky. Rarely, even very extensive chromatic aberrations can be created. I have practically not found these phenomena on the reduced DX format, where, however, the angle of view is no longer what the lens was designed for. I found them limited in use on film, while in more cases I found them on digital FX. Anyway the hood is a good idea. Ultimately with some precautions I think it is a lens that can give excellent satisfaction and excellent value for money

Pros: Weight, size, brightness, colors.

Cons: Sharpness with open diaphragm, parasitic lights.

Opinion: Beautiful colors (almost pastel), ideal lens for those who make portraits. To keep in mind for those who want to use it outdoors suffers a lot from parasitic lights. Sharpness is lost at full aperture, to reduce this it is better to close the diaphragm. Given the size it has you will not struggle to take it with you. Keep in mind that being a fairly dated lens there is no autofocus motor in the lens, so unless you have a car with an af motor you can only use it manually.

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
