Pros: excellent TA sharpness, good price, weight and size

Cons: anything, if you don't expect personal tastes

Opinion: Very good optics in all respects already at full open, to the point that it is not necessary to close the diaphragm to seek more detail. Personally, I am of the opinion that the bokeh is good but on FF he lacks a touch of personality. It's not a real flaw, it's a matter of personal taste. However, it performs the function of portrait optics on the APS format; I use it very often paired with a D200 for the portrait (like an 85 on FF), and the results are really pleasant. Recommended optics for any kind of kit.

Pros: sharpness, color rendition, cost

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I got it used at 180 euros, it was the best money spent on a goal. I use it on Aps-C (d7100) and the color rendition and detail is fantastic. Very pleasant even the bokeh! I find absolutely no flaws and I recommend it to anyone who has in mind to buy a lens from low cost but excellent performance! Rated 10

Pros: Really spectacular lens.

Cons: Restricted field angle (at least for my standards)

Opinion: Very bright lens with a perfect blur. Very convenient to carry, really an amazing lens. It became my main lens after 18 105. The problem is the angle of the field a little narrow thing that is making me think of a 35 mm f 1.8 g. For the rest I recommend it to anyone who wants to start working in manual, then manual focus, aperture game etc.

Pros: Value for money, small and light, very sharp, nice bokeh

Cons: Considered the price anything

Opinion: One of the best lenses looking at the value for money, very sharp already at full aperture up to the most closed diaphragms, has a nice bokeh and gives excellent results both on FF and APS-C. I do not share some comments on the alleged distortion, problem that I have never presented with this lens. It is certainly not a professional lens at the construction level, but it has the advantage of being light and portable.

Pros: High quality/price ratio, light weight, fast AF, very sharp already f/2, little vignetting.

Cons: Noticeable barrel distortion (automatically corrected with software effectiveness). Risk of back-focusing! Focus not very precise and repeatable. Lack of stabilizer, makes you want to use the excellent zoom 24-120mm If you do not need low PdC (f/1.8-3.5). Minimum opening F/16 (F/22 on 24-120mm).

Opinion: At the beginning, this "must have" of Nikonisti did not make me fall in love: I was disappointed by the barrel distortion, not horrible but very visible (on FX) when the photo has straight elements, approaching the one on the wide angle of the 24-120mm F4. The software or the firmware of the camera correct it well (I recommend to set "auto distortion Control" in the menu), but it bothers to see it in a fixed and not even wide angle, forcing to sacrifice side details of the shot, visible instead in the viewfinder . Of course, it should be considered the very low cost of optics, the fact that the use on FX (on DX the distortion would be barely perceptible), and that is a small and light optics and with few lenses, as opposed to the 24-120mm that does not distort to 50mm. On top of that, I happened to have a copy (socket used in the store) with a heavy back-focusing, which I corrected in the camera, after several tests, with a fine adjustment offset AF of-20 (the maximum! I almost went to protest in the shop. Also check your, which focuses exactly in the AF point and not in front or back. Calibrated the AF, I recognized that this little one is discreetly sharp to f 1.8, and very sharp already from F2! At F4 it is cesellante, and also sharper (as you would hope) of the already excellent zoom 24-120mm @ 50mm. The sharpness at times however depends on the accuracy of the MAF, which does not seem great. The sharpness, then, does not seem to worsen much with the distance of the center of the frame. Unfortunately, not being stabilized you can not absolutely fall under 1/50 "freehand to avoid the blur, and still up to 1/80" you have to be careful. The vignetting is present but very light even on FX. The AF motor is the same as the 24-120, not very fast but quick and acceptable almost always. In conclusion, this little one gives me the impression of being built for the DX format, not much for the FX, with which it is also compatible and where it gives a very important LF. However, with a little bit of attention, and automatic distortion and vignetting corrections, it can also be valuable on FX. Precious, in my opinion, only to have the blurred of the F 1.8-3.5 and to lighten the weight in case of light outputs at only 50mm, because as a total yield does not seem to me that the 24-120 F4 has much to envy, rather has the magic of the stabilizer. But sometimes the 50ino is used willingly. Final Vote 8, maybe it would be 8.5 for me, for the price to which it is located.
