Certainly I must have been crazy going from an "ultra zoom" to this thing. But so far after just a day and a half of playing around, I've found this lens to run circles around my Tamron lens when it comes to certain shots.
Back to what makes this more versatile than the ultra zoom Tamron:
- 52 mm filters are cheaper than 72 mm filters (something not to overlook)
- It takes less light to get the shot. Higher shutter speeds and F stops are possible with this lens, more than the zoom lens. I don't have to set the ISO as high, so less grain with a lower ISO.
- affordable. At $120 this is about a 3rd of the price of what I paid for the zoom. With an added extension tube, it was still cheaper than the zoom.
- Image quality is better. The focus is sharp. So far I've found myself using this lens a bit more than my 35mm G lens, which is also supposed to be sharp but didn't work as well with the extension tubes.)
- small and light weight (this also can't be overlooked, especially if hand-held.)
This lens also has a bit of a learning curb. Being a prime, takes getting rather close to the subject to "zoom in" and stepping back to "zoom out". With the crop factor, I get a bit of working room in front of the minimum focus. (which can also be a pro, depending on the situation such as using extension tubes.) Not being able to zoom may also be a drawback in some settings like in zoos or places where you can't or not allowed to get close. It also took me a day to figure out how to get manual focusing out of this lens. On a camera with an autofocus motor, you flip the switch on the camera to switch from manual to auto. There is no switch on the lens itself.
A few drawbacks I've found:
On a crop sensor camera, there is no wide angle to be had. Getting landscapes and building shots will require some playing around with composition to make it work. (you may not be able to get the full thing in the frame.) There doesn't appear to be vibration control on this lens so it may take a few shots to get one in focus, but then again even with a VC lens, there may be drawbacks of its own. I wouldn't have minded if it were to cost a little more and included the lens hood. Without it I have to be careful not to get too close to my subjects and also have to keep cleaning the filter to get rid of dust, smudges and and fingerprints. It is also not the most quiet lens to be had. But for most of my shooting, it doesn't bother me.
- 7 blade bokeh (please see photo added to gallery.) Light sources may show up as heptagons which may or may not be what I want in a particular shot. But each lens is a tool, and each tool has its own use and drawbacks.
PLUS, you CANNOT adjust the aperture on the Nikon D40/D40x cameras! It will function on the camera itself but you are not allowed to adjust the aperture of the lens. All the research I did I did not find that anywhere. They did explain that it will not auto focus on these cameras.
So, as far as quality, its Nikkor. Its a great, clear and crisp lens like all Nikon glass. And its great to have for special occasions with low light, I just wish I had the D90 or better so I could use all its functionality.
And if you dont know about Prime lenses, they are incredibly clear. But you cannot zoom in and out like your kit lens, you have to physically move yourself back and fourth, so for landscape with this on my D40x, you have to be way further away than typically works for me.
Go research forums and groups on Flickr.com, check out what others say before you purchase. It is an excellent lens at an amazing price! Just know what its good for before you drop your $$$.
If you're looking for a great casual, cheap portraiture low light lens that's very sharp at 1.8 and are on a budget you can't go wrong with this. Just be aware of the crop factor. If you have a DX body and want the "true" 50mm, then spend 50 dollars more and get the 35mm.
With that said, the low light performace and wide open aperture sharpness of this lens is excellent and this has become my go-to for portraits, but for walkaround photography the 35mm spends more time on my D7000. Focusing is also a tad faster in the 35.
Build quality is excellent and it's a lot more substantial than Canon's equvalent lens in this segment (the nifty 50 1.8 which I use on my FF 5D mk I).
It is VERY susceptible to flare, and I would recommend the rubber Nikon hood to help mitigate this, which unfortunately is not included and drives the price up closer to the 35mm which comes with hood included.
