- Great lens Review by mattb.351
I bought this lens because I wanted a fast portrait lens for my D7000. For me, this lens represented the best of both worlds - a fast aperture at a cheap price.
I decided I could live without the faster aperture and smaller depth of field the of 1.4, so it came down to a decision between this lens and the D version.
I like the fact that this lens has seven curved aperture blades as opposed to straight blades on the D. This helps keep the bokeh nice. I liked the aperture ring on the D, but this lens doesn't have one and I can live without it (G lenses don't have aperture rings). One thing to note is that this lens stops down to F16, not F22 like others in the 50mm lineup from Nikon. I don't think this will ever worry me. Other differences are that this lens has the silent wave motor (motor in the lens) and will work with all the autofocus Nikon bodies, which is pretty much all models these days. The D has no motor so relies on the motor in your camera (if it has one), or your hand to manually focus.
In terms of optical performance, it's great like all the other 50mm lenses in the world.
All in all, this lens is a nice addition to my lineup. It is small, cheap, light, and fast and makes the best companion to my camera from all my lenses. It has a nice balanced feel to it when on the camera, and helps keep the whole outfit more public place friendly because of the compactness.
