is this is a good lens form nikon d5100? autofocus? Mar 18, 2013
The autofocus is great and at the price for a prime lens you can't beat it. One thing since you are shooting with a DX sensor or cropped sensor this lens will actually be at 75mm, check out this nikon link http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-And-Explore/Article/g588ouey/The-DX-and-FX-Formats.html

Is there a Canon equivalent? Not sure if I'm supposed to ask here...is there a Canon equivalent? May 1, 2012
Comparable to Nikon's 50mm f/1.4? http://www.amazon.com/Canon-Standard-Medium-Telephoto-Cameras/dp/B00009XVCZ/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1336679058&sr=1-2
diff between the 2 nikon 50 mm 1.4? What is the difference between the two 50 mm 1.4 lenses on Amazon? Jun 14, 2011
the 50mm 1.4D has an aperture ring, no SWM motor onboard (requires the camera body AF motor - via screw drive). Making the D not compatible (just for AF - manual works fine) on the D40/D60 and similar bodies. D3000 also and likely some others (i'm not as familiar with the new bodies). The newer 50mm 1.4G has no aperture ring but does have a SWM motor making it compatible with all bodies with and without onboard AF motors. Your D90 like it's D80 predecessor DOES have the body AF motor so you can get either and AF will work.
i have Nikon D90 and I want to buy lens 50mm 1.4 Which one is the fast lens to focus, F/1.4 G or F/1.4S ? what are the main difference? pros and cons. Oct 22, 2013
It is a close call. The f/1.4G has slightly faster AF, but if you use the lens comparison tool on DxOMark.com, the f/1.4 D scores one point higher for overall performance on the D90 body. If you plan to upgrade your camera, the f/1.4 G is a better performer on higher resolution sensors, making it a better investment for future use.
I am fairly new to photography so with that in mind, is the NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G , slow , is it suppose to get stuck when really close to subject ? Jan 20, 2014
Hi the autofocus is fast. This is a relatively fast lens. you can google to compare with the latest lens 58mm f1.4 which produces stunning shots. But this model of 50mm f1.4G is a good lens to use and nice bokeh. Generally no lens will get stuck. I reckon you meant hunting or trying to focus. Every lens has a min distance of focus. Like someone who is long sighted, if you are too close you will not be able to focus. I think this lens is around a foot distance. Check the specifications.
I need a better lens for low light to photograph my kids indoors and for weddings as a 2nd shooter. Is this a good fit? Sep 22, 2013
This is great for low-light pictures. However, you've to take them for a far distance. For me, the best is the Nikon 24mm f/2.8. It gives you a wide angle and also great pictures in low-light environments. Hope this helps you. =)
slow AF action on my F5... is it normal? is there anyone who experiences a similar AF performance? Mar 23, 2010
Yes, I have the same problem and I feel like throwing the thing through a window. I think I may sell it and get a 1.4d
The lens says it's AF-S and according to this comparison chart it should work. http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/compatibility-lens.htm This is a pretty good site for everything Nikon, the guy is obsessed with it and can go into detail. Not the end all be all and there's obviously bias here and there but it's a good informative site that can make you aware of some details you may not have even heard of.
