This is a great general purpose lens that also makes a fine short portrait lens on a DX body. It is great in low light, very fast focusing, and extremely sharp backed off an f/stop or so. The lens has very nice bokeh and is well made.

PROS

  • Lightweight
  • Nice Bokeh
  • Durable

CONS

BEST USES

  • Night Photography

Comments:

It is an incredible lens and the quality and performance is A+. I think the bokeh this lens produces is beautiful. There are cheaper options with this type of lens, but I have tried the others and find this to outperform the others. I primarily use this lens on my D300.

I've had this lense for over 3 weeks and haven't yet taken it off my D7000. This is my first prime lense and I'm finding it to be sharp, fast-focusing and easy to use as I take photos of my granddhildren. I wish I'd purchased it sooner.

This lens I would consider a must have for any phototographer! It's a perfect lens for any type of lighting. From low light to portraits in a church, the 1.4 aperature makes life so much easier.

Good lens!

 
4.0

PROS

  • Excellent quality
  • Nice Bokeh
  • Largeeee Aperture

CONS

  • Slow Focus
  • Inaccurate focus sometime

BEST USES

  • Sample
  • Indoors/Low Light
  • Portraits

Comments:

This lens feels great! If you have enough money and want to take some pics through a large aperture, take this one, no question. However, if your budget is not that much, f1.8d is enough. You can't tell a big difference of the pic's quality between these 2 lens. There is one drawback of the 1.4G, sometimes, it focus inaccurately and slowly.

Comments:

We recently added a new addition to our family and I picked up this lens to help take indoor, low light pictures without using a flash. It does the job VERY well. In addition, I am always out and about taking shots of nature and it works well there too.
