AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D
Excellent portrait lens on FX or DX
I purchased this lens when I had my D80. It stuck with me on my D7000, and my D600. It's an excellent lens to use for portraits because you can really isolate your subject from the background. The low light capabilities are great, and auto focus in dark locations is much better than 3rd party lens manufacturers. I highly recommend this lens for individuals who really want to get creative with depth of field and have a solid workhorse for walking around.

Glass came from HEAVEN.!
I bought this lens two weeks ago, have done two shoots with it at 1.4 in daylight & artificial light as well. I can proudly say that the D.O.F you get from this lens, DOESN'T COMPARE WITH ALL THE OTHERS OUT THERE. Reason? 1. "TACT SHARP QUALITY/FOCUSING", 2. "SOFT, CREAMY D.O.F", 3. "IDEAL/PERFECT CHOICE FOR D-MOVIES". I own a D800, Its ISO RANGE and the MAXIMUM APPERTURE of this lens, its just PHENOMENOL. Really LIGHT WEIGHT and HANDY, its like im holding A MILLION DOLLAR BILL. :)

Wow for Portraits
This is real a fast and easy lens for natural light portrait photos even in very low light conditions.
Bokeh is exquisite even on a DX body. Look forward to using this lens on a FX camera when i have one.

Great color and sharpness
Supurb performance at 1.4f and up
Auto focus is fast, manual focus smooth and quick
I wouldn't trade it for a G lens, at any time.
The only competition this 50mm lens would have is the Nikon 1.2f manual, 50mm.
