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: For this lens alone it's worth staying at the dsrl

Cons: Diaphragm adjustable only by camera body

Opinion: With this lens I would do everything, this would be enough for me. It is the only one that maintains its being. Against the light it holds up stunningly, small and light. Modern lenses (from g onwards) are cold, perfect, razor-sharp but they are bland. This puts you in dialogue with the photographer and allows you to write with ease, helping to give a vital vibration to your subjects. The vibration I'm talking about has always been the case with previous cameras and optics and it has been lost with digital and even more so with contemporary optics. Everything has become standardized. With this one, on the other hand, I find that energy with the added comforts of contemporaneity. At 1.4 it has a very soft focus part and maintains a softness even at closed apertures. It is not a blade but it is a tool to represent, even if only to express oneself. Sharpness is a bourgeois concept, and I'm not interested in seeing a perfectly sharp iris on a file that is displayed at 200%. I don't switch to ML just to keep using it. A camera system is based on optics for me and not on purely technical elements such as burst or similar. At this point the only thing I care about the ML is the battery life and apart from Z9 we are not there yet. For now, I continue to rely on optics that help me express what I mean and this is the most centered and versatile I know.

Pros: Yield, bokeh, colors, all around

Cons: Plastic?, Af sometimes uncertain and a slow hair, curvature of field

Opinion: It is a 58mm, it is not a 50mm and does not replace it that does not replace an 85mm for perspective vision, but compared to an 85 1.4 Nikon for blurred does not fear it and indeed .. fabulous progression .. Merits? Practically a lot... Sharpness, fairly ready colors, light management (ok, loses contrast and 1/3 stop on the highlights but it takes to burn them), micro contrast right and not exasperated, holds the coma well; The 58mm are already excellent for the portrait set and mention the cut to 3/4 as the half bust horizontally ... Focal that also lends itself very well between alleys and the like up to the landscape with closed diaphragms ... In short, it has become in a very short time one of my favorite lenses (and already often use ujn old 58 1.4 minolta but on sony). Defects? To the plastic touch for such a lens but at the same time it weighs little, probably on SLR the real limit is the focus a slow and uncertain hair perhaps due to the curvature of the lens; on bokeh there is little to say, one of those optics that you buy for this and is almost comparable to the cream machine 85 1.4D precisely, if we want an aspect to take into account is the curvature of the field that projects the areas from the subject to the edges a little forward on the line of focus, it means that if there are 2 subjects one of the two will not be on the hypothetical focal plane chosen (like the 35 f2 AFD you have to think well how to arrange people and how to angle in the case), but probably this allows a greater blur behind the areas out of focus from the subject to the edges, so using the center and recomposing is not in fact practical for this lens at full aperture; I believe that once you learn to manage is one of those irreplaceable lenses that create strong addiction, on the contrary it will remain in the backpack to end up directly on the market if you do not make the effort to understand the lens and above all make the mistake of thinking it a substitute for a 50mm, the 50mm is more cheeky and functional in use as a normal all-rounder, the 58mm best suited to the single subject and the portrait; small clarification regarding the comparison with the classic 50mm planar , I own the 50 1.4D and also ta has a global contrast and micro contrast more accentuated that can return a three-dimensionality sometimes (even for perspective) more incisive, for what I noticed the 58mm have more difficulty maintaining the contrast in general but the result is a right three-dimensionality with better cohesion behind despite the most pronounced blur, What is also found in the 85 1.4 Nikon but with a very different perspective and different reading of the scene ... If we want this 58mm is an alternative to the portrait canvas in normal style.

Pros: bokeh and blurred to say the least incredible, versatility, lightness

Cons: Autofocus not really fast, price

Opinion: With this lens I had a particular relationship, using it for weddings, at the beginning I had a bit of a hard time getting used to the autofocus (used to using the Nikon 85 1.4G). Compared to the 85 it is certainly less rapid and slightly less precise, but once you take the hand, this lens has given me incredible satisfaction. I am literally in love with the almost magical effect that the photos taken at full aperture have, the blur and bokeh are incredible. The focal length is really versatile, you can use it for almost everything.

Pros: Colors, Bokeh, versatility

Cons: Price (especially for the new one)

Opinion: Purchased used in a well-known photography store for 850 euros in September 2022. I find it a really good lens, it has magical colors and a very nice bokeh even if I'm not a lover of focal lengths around 50mm. Compared to the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50 mm f / 1.4G the quality is higher but I would advise people to take used the fifty that is around € 250 and keep the other money in your pocket (in my case it would have been 600 euros). There are not many specimens around like the 50 1.4, which is why the price used remains high. If one has no budget or is a beginner with that money you make one or two used optics. If instead one has a budget go directly to the 58 that will make you make an extra leap in the quality of the photos you will take. Pros: Versatile optics, can be used both in portraits and in some landscape photos. Really beautiful colors and bokeh that drives me crazy. I took the same portrait of a model in a park with the 105, 85 and 58 and among the three I like the bokeh on the trees of 58 because the bokeh on the leaves is composed of circles and not completely blurred as for the other two. Against the price especially if you buy it new. I use it on z6 and I have no calibration problems, I will also try it on the d750 to see if it suffers from any back/front focus. SCORE: 9/9+
