Pros: Probably Nikon's most special lens

Cons: Focus sometimes unreliable, a little soft on closer distances; lens hood is realy wobbly and cheap.

Opinion: For me, it is very special lens - perfect for portraiture, even for other purposes as well. After mastering the lens, the results are amazing. This lens makes photos almost as these made with medium format. Sharpness is very good, altough not excellent. But that is not the point of this lens, it is rendering and 3d look that image offers. Colors are very nice, neutral to warm, depending on conditions. In final, image quality is very unique, I do not see any lens renders like 58G. It is very light lens, but also with huge diameter (72mm). Build quality; it could be a little better, but it is also subjective, since lens is very light, so it also feels like a little cheap. Highly reccomended for those who looks for classic image look, not modern sterile (only sharp) characteristics.

Pros: Excellent in all respects! It has unique colors!

Cons: nothing!

Opinion: When I took it at a price not really cheap I knew from the reviews read that it would be a great optics! I use it on DF and I can say that it is an exceptional lens, especially in the evening or in environments with little light.. I love shooting with little light, and this lens seems to be born for shots of this kind!!! I agree with Lupaccio who reviewed this lens long before me, when he says nikon put a brush in the hands of photographers... his colors are unparalleled... is not as sharp as other 1.4 optics.. but when I print the photos the owner of the laboratory always says that they are particular colors and nothing and excessive ... the light, the colors of the skin, in short and a particular optics that must be used and understood! And then he doesn't give up, they tell me that 35 1.4 and on the same line... ok as soon as I find a great used....

Pros: Optical yield, weight, versatility

Cons: Important frame despite lens size, cost, lasco lampshid

Opinion: Perhaps I was lucky: the specimen in my possession has no problems with focus or consistency of yield with both the D3x and the D750. Usually the optics so bright are fine especially to make portraits, instead with fifty-eight I made different landscapes with some satisfaction. It was a impulse purchase, but it convinced me right away. As much as I am a short optics adept, I feel very good with the narrowest angle of field of this lens. One curious thing is that in the backlight it overexposes, unlike all the others. On the contrary, I very rarely have to make exposure compensation. I really like the somewhat pastel colors that he returns, contrary to what I read is not even too ply of details. It is very versatile: if you want to make portraits at full opening you do it, if you want to make landscape with much more closed diaphragms he does not say no and adapts. One of those goals to keep always attached to the REFLEX, too bad that even used has its cost: but it is certainly worth the expense. Update 31 May 2021: at full opening it sometimes becomes a bit inaccurate as a focus, even with good AF modules such as that of the D3x and the D750. At that point, button on the left, you turn off the autofocus, and proceed with manual focus. Another thing this lens continues to amaze me for is the three-dimensionality of the images, one of its most beautiful features.

Pros: It's a unique lens, a 105 in the body of a 58. It makes the photos magical. To try to believe.

Cons: Difficult to calibrate it to TA; several aberrations in TA; field curvature; exosive price of the new; I ruined the inner edge by sticking the cap without looking (50 euros the spare). Plasticky.

Opinion: I've had two years later and I've never been able to calibrate them well, using them on different machine bodies. It's my fault. I'd love to try them now on Z to see if front-back focus issues stop but I don't have them anymore. However, the photos I took with this lens are different from all the others, parameters that cannot be quantified with cold data come into play... You enter a new dimension. It is worth buying a used one, within 1000 euros, to try it taking into account the considerations of the users read so far, without going in search of what it is not, but on the contrary to enhance its peculiarities, and then possibly resell it at the same amount. The low light colors in the interior are incredible but it is obviously the yield of the blurry and the soft separation between focus and blurry areas that are its prerogative. I think only 200/2 is more satisfying but I wasn't lucky enough to prove it. I also had 85/1.4 and 105/1.4 much more precise and sharper at TA but this has from its greater angle of field that allows very particular set portraits. Special also the yield of the light points, in the evening, it is possible to distinguish the bulb in the lamppost, without halos. However, I do not like that towards the edges the out-of-focus lights become "cat's eyes". Very sharp from f/2 for those who also look for sharpness but at TA it is not a Sigma Art (which as far as I am concerned returns a very different bokeh). But the worst flaw I found was the heightened curvature of the field, so when I photographed a painting, for example, it didn't all come into focus, say, center and edges in focus and half-blurry, to "sombrero." I don't give a damn about photographing a painting with this lens, but if I had tot subjects lined up on the same floor they didn't all come into focus on me especially a short distance away, let's put a row of bottles. So I freaked out. For portraits with only one subject no problem. They freaked me out, but I read about this intrinsic feature of it. With distant and diaphragm subjects, the problem arises less. Every time I sold them to invest in optics more suited to my photographic genres, but every now and then, if I have to make a portrait, I feel orphaned by their magic. (1000 euros to use it every now and then I can not afford it).

Pros: Humanity, bokeh, color range, tonal passages

Cons: It is a particular lens of not immediate understanding

Opinion: I confess that I find it hard to review the 58ne after saying plague and horns for years. I owned two different specimens both for a very short time, I had (and still have) in the house the 50 Art and the 50 Milvus and this plasticine lently I never considered at the level of my two samples, if I went to make a comparison for sharpness the 58 seemed broken! Recently, however, I bought it back and forced myself to try to understand it. I discovered (it's meant to say...) that it's not a blade, a measuring tool, it wasn't designed for that. It is rather a brush that Nikon puts in the photographer's hand to invite him to give vent to his artistic vein. The fantastic and sometimes surreal bokeh, the tonal passages, the naturalness of the colors, well, in short, you find yourself looking at the photos with a different eye and the term sharpness suddenly loses importance. Of course it is not an easy lens, of those that make you immediately fall in love. And it costs a little while considering it's nothing more than a plastic and it doesn't even have special lenses. And yet... but I see that in my house I live very well with my samples, using it a lot of fun and its peculiarities lead me to say that it is the best 50-58 ever pulled out of Nikon. So is it to buy? Given the abnormal cost I would recommend a preventative test and - if you like - a purchase on the used, you will find brand new specimens on a thousand euros. My third 58 will also be the last one, this one I hold tight!
