Pros: Focal length and large aperture,As well as work well under the light, low price.

Cons: Chromatic aberrations at f1,4

Opinion: Very cool lens with good parameters and low price, i'm using it for the Sony 77 body, which has a very good system for manual sharpening. Wide grip for manual sharpening and big leap just make it easy to work with, the lens is sharp, cool blurs the background and has a nice bokeh. I'm impressed with the value for money.It is solidly built. I recommend it.

Pros: Bright, sharp, optimized for f 1.4, smooth and smooth maf, manual.

Cons: The maf ring can become hard or irregular, but just a little fat and come back as new. Not vignette.

Opinion: I have it for some years, searched and bought used in the very first Nikon version, the one depicted here with the gold plate, without the contacts for the confirmation chip of the maf, by real men. :) Actually the focus is extremely delicate, even on FF: if you breathe wrong, if the model breathes wrong, the TA tripod is almost a must; ... if at one meter in a face turned of 3 \ \ 4 and' in focus the tip of 1 eyelash, its root already' is not' more', so the maf and' absolutely surgical. The flare suffers little or nothing, it is robust and well built, even if internally it does not have a helical but relies on the most modern nylon nozzles inside the bores on the barrel. The dedicated hood is fragile, but at least it is simply bayonet grafted. This first version has the least effective anti-reflective treatment, so the blur is slightly butterier than the following others (source: direct comparisons on the web). I am very sorry that you do not vignette, because in the portrait it is for me a very welcome feature of the optics. I rarely use it: I much prefer the old Nikkor-S 50 f 1.4, but if I want sharp results and without vintage glazes I use this. I paid 160€ with original box, caps, hood and 2 years warranty. If I had to buy it again, honestly I wouldn't do it, but only because for my style I prefer the vintage rendering of the 50-S and I later discovered that in the portrait the focal length of 135mm is more congenial to me, with the Nikkor-Q 135 f 2.8

Pros: Overall image quality, blurry.

Cons: Manual focus, not very sharp at 1.4, some chromatic aberration.

Opinion: Taken used for just under 300 euros, it is a lens that has given me satisfaction, not being able to spend on other more performing ones. At 1.4 as many say it does not split the hair, but it is still usable for my taste, nothing tragic. Some aberration is noticeable, especially in some light conditions and at full aperture, but even there it can be and in most cases I have solved in post. The blurred is really nice, I got to appreciate it in some portraits and the detachment of the planes is pleasant. If you do not need autofocus, then a more still life use or in any case in "controlled" situations, it is an excellent compromise. I happened to make use of it in more dynamic areas and I must say that the lack of autofocus is felt, but it could also be a limit of mine due to the comfortable habit of using the AF :). I recommend it especially to those who have a limited badget.

Pros: price for a f 1.4 , lightness, creamy blur, good sharpness, fluid and precise dial

Cons: manual focus, f1.4 doesn't break the hair

Opinion: It is a portrait and does not disappoint in this field; obviously as long as you know how to work in manual and better manage the depth of field at f1.4 . I personally mounted the confirmation chip for Canon, spending 7 euros and with a bit of work I equipped the lens of a valid help for the Maf . Obviously it is not foolproof but I have to say that I trust more the chip than my eye, after several tests on the field. The optics, for its price, have an enviable soft blur and a good sharpness even f1.4 (as long as you have put it in good focus. which may sometimes not be really accurate to that diaphragm. Of course, sharpness is related to those portraits where you do not look for the extreme sharpness of optics that cost 5 times more and weigh more than twice as much. In fact, it is a "light" optic, which does not fatigue in the long portrait sessions and allows you to bend easily without weighing down wrists and arms. At the end of the day it's an optics that I recommend to those who want to save for great portraits. Obviously there is better, but at that price and with these features, it is a great optics.

Pros: Blurred, price

Cons: Construction, at f 1.4 is not clear, purple fringing at full throttle, the distance data on the focus ring wrong, sharpness at infinity ridiculous, slight play when attached to the machine (Fujifilm version)

Opinion: I wanted to trust those who said that even at f 1.4 was sharp: I hurt, because it is not. At full aperture is quite soft and has a lot of chromatic aberrations intrusive and annoying. The building I found satisfactory, from the feeling of Hazel, then forget it. Data on the focus ring is incorrect despite having the latest version of this lens (the one with the red line); the focus to infinity is completely wrong (possibly a manufacturing defect of my copy?). The sharpness becomes good only at f 2.8 onwards, very good instead the focus (which together with the price is the only redeeming factor as far as I'm concerned). Nice lens for amateur use, I did not like at all, prompted the return after 3 days.
