Top customer reviews
It's astonishing to see how much light it can absorb when used at large apertures. I'm enjoying the nice bokeh, and ability to shoot most any subject with available light. The sharpness and clarity is superb! Externally, it has solid build quality, nice ergonomics, and good looks like the other Nikon G series prime lenses. I recommend this lens to anyone who is contemplating the purchase, you won't regret it.
- Fast, bright and sharp
- AF is quiet, usable for shooting video
- Excellent balance of contrast and resolution
- Smooth bokeh
- Weather sealed
- The lens has considerable geometric distortion that turns rectangles into trapezoids. It does not improve with stopping down. You'll need software like DxO Optics Pro Version 7 Elite Edition Photo Enhancing Software for Macintosh & Windows to easily correct the problem.
- Some color fringing is noticeable at large apertures.
- I'm not crazy about the plastic build, but it seems solid enough.
- AF speed seems sluggish on a Nikon D800 36.3 MP CMOS FX-Format Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)
Like many other users here, I'm upgrading from the 50mm 1.8D. I bought the cheaper 1.8D first because I didn't think I'd be using the 50mm so much. I soon found that the most useful (and most commonly used) focal length for my job was around 50mm. Once I realized that, I upgraded to the 50mm 1.4G.
I've considered the 85mm f/1.4. If you have a telephoto, then try zooming to 85mm. In a small room, you might not be able to include everything you want on your frame. 85mm is very tight especially on a DX camera because of the 1.5x crop factor. I think 85mm is more for the full-frame camera owners. If you have a DX, this 50mm lens (x1.5 = full frame equivalent is 75mm) is just right for many indoor portraits.
I've also tried the Sigma 17-50mm because of its wide constant "pro" aperture (f2.8). I was hoping that I can use that instead of carrying multiple primes like I do sometimes (50mm and 35mm). That was a big $700 mistake. There is no way an F2.8 can ever compare to the primes in terms of being able to shoot in low-light without flash and also getting beautiful bokeh with background separation.
This does have an odd filter thread size. I tried putting a 58-70mm step-up ring like Ken Rockwell suggested so I can use my 70mm filters. That setup looks ridiculous, and your hood won't fit anymore. Just get the 58mm HOYA UV filter.
The photos taken with this lens actually look brighter than what I can see with my own eyes in the room. No clumsy flash needed. Amazing lens.
