Pros: Great in general

Cons: Blurred and yield to ta

Opinion: Good morning I am not with this data ... viewing angle 31.5 degrees... but it's not a 50mm ? Instead the 50mm version 1.8 and a 46 ... but which of the two lora and better? Let's talk about ff anyway not on the right there someone who could clarify the concept?? Currently I have the version of... I was also evaluating the sigma ex f1.4 a big boss sigma makes really mammoth lenses

Pros: Excellent sharpness at closed apertures, zero distortion, light and compact, chromatically valid for portraits.

Cons: Good only from f2.5 up, blurred, construction.

Opinion: Clearly for price and size we could not talk about defects, but since there are already many related reviews I prefer to make a review in an absolute sense. I had it for years on d90, then for a while on d750, sold to take the G: it was never true love. Many talk about it very well, but we must bear in mind that for many it is the first fixed after the 18-55, while those who have to do with both fixed lenses and higher class zoom know well that the comparison is out of place. It is no coincidence that it is considered by most to be the worst Nikon 50ino ever. The mistake is to consider it a 1.8, if you considered it as a 2.5 would change many things (but not everything). If used at large apertures it is an inconstant lens, in the sense that it brings out very beautiful photos, but only in optimal conditions of light / subject / background / focus / ass (and on the internet you will see only these). In fact, the truth is that in most conditions you will throw a lot of photos, because it is simply a poor lens to be open from all points of view, blurred close to the fire in the first place. Let it be clear that even at 2.8 and above you can make excellent portraits. Quite the opposite if used closed, in fact f4 is a blade in the absolute sense, great value 30 years ago when cheap zooms were very scarce but nowadays even a kit lens does not fare badly when closed. I go on the practical, it has a beautiful rendering of the complexion (chromatically neutral) and at the most open diaphragms it is decent only at short distances, so if your purpose is to make close-ups or half busts with strong detachment then maybe something really good can do it. It is very valid for panoramas, in general wherever you want supernitide photos from edge to edge at closed apertures. If your purpose is to take pictures with isolation of the subject it is better to spend 2 extra wedges and take the G, which is clear is always an economic lens but at least you can use it at full aperture at all distances and always returns contrasted colors and with a discreet blurred. Otherwise if you have a right camera (equipped with fine AF calibration), you are able to handle an f1.4 and you want the real magic, spending about € 250 in the used and with a slightly greater weight the Sigma Art 30mm f1.4 crushes them both (both optically and physically, given the pro construction).

Pros: Small, cheap and sharp from f 8 to f16

Cons: Bokeh disagreeable, unclear and lack of contrast at full opening

Opinion: Purchased by NOC for 20 euros as it is noisier than normal. Fast optics with a bit of full-opening vignetting and bokeh fringe. THE CA is moderate and the distortion is actually very well controlled. The main weakness of the lens is its bokeh which is a bit unpleasant. Used with a 12-24 mm extension tube allows you to take quality macros, recommended for landscape and half-bust portrait, astronomical photo. I personally use it on the D700 with excellent results, to always keep in the bag.

Pros: Lightness, optical quality, cost

Cons: Noisy AF, as on all D's you have to be careful how you hold it so as not to block the focus

Opinion: Bought a few years ago at a ridiculous price, so far I have used it more to try focus or little else. After accompanying me on a trip these days it turned out to be a respectable lens, even given the ergonomic limitations due to the focus system, it is absolutely easy to unintentionally lock the front ring. Apart from that, weight and optical quality make it a very good travel companion when you want to stay light without making compromises. Highly recommended, it is found around at almost symbolic prices. It would be said that all in all they could have kept it in production a few years longer, as nikon did with optics other D optics that remained in the catalog until not so long ago.

Pros: Clear from fear, light, compact (you literally put it in the jeans pocket), metal frame, if you find it used in excellent condition at 60 euros (the 35 DX, you find it on average twice), the cheapest Nikon f1.8 lens there is, does not suffer from flares or ghosts, on DX you put all the filters you want me not to vignette , excellent bokeh better than 35 DX, has distance scale, accepts 52mm filters, hard stop to infinity for focus, much more reliable than 35 DX

Cons: Sometimes it is long when mounted on DX indoors, it needs a machine body with internal AF motor, in poor light while looking for the focus it can be noisy, they did not yet do them with the gasket around the attachment, it does not have internal focus so pump air in and out, does not have the bayonet attachment for a possible lampshed

Opinion: NB: I write all this as a DX owner. That is the objective. Anyone who is in second arms with the photograph should give away their entry level and take a used semi-pro machine body and this lens here. It has impressive versatility, from landscapes, portraits, street, low light photos, astrophotography. On DX it becomes a 75mm 1.8 which is very close to 85mm (I leave it to the reader to draw their own conclusions). It's smaller and lighter than the 35, more reliable because the focus is screwed and there's no risk of swm leaving you at home. A f5.6 is self-ree, but is fully exploitable at f1.8 in the dark and f2.2-f2.8 during the day. It can be long if you want photos in the interior: for a headshot it takes 1.5m, for a bust 2.5m, while for an erect whole body it takes 4.5m. Mounted on the body doesn't even seem to have it on. The front lens is quite inside the lens, so you can remove a possible UV filter without too much fear, so as not to lose that stop fraction in low light. With him you have a lot of fun and it makes you genuinely appreciate photography. Along with any 18-55 and the 35 DX is part of that pink of small lenses that you may never detach from the body. Even here the usual sulphate (:P) about the fact that it is very informative because being a fixed you have to move a little to find a good composition. With a little english knowledge just take a tour of Rockwell's blog and read his opinion to fall in love with it a priori.
