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

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

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.

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.

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.

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. =)

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.

This lens will fit on your D60, however your D60 is a DX format camera and this is an FX format lens, which means this will act like a 75mm lens and not a 50mm lens.
