Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 164 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best lens ever This is the best lens ever. I use it for everything and have had the most amazing results. So sharp. Takes the most beautiful shots of eyes and sleeping babies. Love it and recommend it to everyone. August 1, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best lens you could ever buy! I got this lens a couple years ago when I found my dad's old FM2. I didn't know how good this lens was until I customized my picture control and shot in aperture priority. I don't know how old this lens is, as mine was made in Japan but hearing the autofocus was never a problem for me. For simply a $130, you get so much image quality and low light shooting capability that you'd be crazy not to get this lens. I shoot with a Nikon D7000 so if you have a camera that doesn't have an internal motor, are you willing to put with shooting in manual focus? I also love the contrast and the simple build. Pros: Super Sharp Image Quality Lightweight Great Glass Made in Japan (for mine at least, Nikon may have outsourced now) BOKEH Cons: If you have a camera like a D3200 or another entry level DSLR, you have to take into consideration that autofocus is not compatible Feels plasticy and tacky Is known to break fairly easily If you don't take image quality into the discussion, this lens doesn't look intimidating or even all that impressive. August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent first lens for learning and value to use for years The 50mm f/1.8D is the very first lens I bought along with my first Nikon. I tried them both out at the camera store before making my purchase. I found it to be a great first lens for so many reasons. Being an affordable fast prime lens is on top of that list. I've used it for black & white as well as color film photography. It is small and light that walking around photographing is not tiring. The filter size being 52mm makes it affordable to experiment with different filters. Though the autofocus doesn't work with entry-level DSLR, I'm not lowering how I rate this lens for it because the 50mm f/1.8D worked with the film camera I bought with it, F5. When I got my first DSLR, it worked just fine with it too. It focuses fast and the images are sharp and clear. When I want to be more creative than what the camera does, i manually set the aperture on the lens and manually adjust the focus to infinity for long exposures. For the price, you really can't complain about the value you get out of it. The 50mm f/1.8 is a great first lens when learning photography and provides years of use. July 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheap fast prime lens, manual focus This lens is a steal for the money . I use it with my Nikon D3200 it only works in manual focus but it's F/1.8 aperture is great for low light conditions. I have used this lens to photograph stars, landscapes and people, a nice prime lens takes better pics than the kit lens that comes with the camera. June 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful prime lens I love this lens. I use it on my d7100 and the results have been excellent. It is great in low light, very sharp, focuses quickly, and gives great crispness and color fidelity. At the price, this may be the best bargain in camera lenses, period. I highly recommend this lens for any camera with a focus motor in the camera (7000 series or higher). June 14, 2015

Answer: 
The lens was originally designed to work on older non digital bodies that were unable to control aperture, this was set via the lens. Todays bodies can control aperture thus the aperture ring is not needed, hence why the newer G lenses do not incorporate an aperture ring.

Answer: 
No, this AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens does not have a focus motor and will not focus on the D5100. For lenses that will autofocus on the D5100 look for lenses with the AF-S designation, like the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens.

Answer: 
In order to adjust aperture using the ring on a D Lens, you will need to change your D7100's custom setting for f5: Customize Command Dials. To do this, navigate to the Custom Settings menu, scroll down to f5: Customize Command Dials, then navigate down to Aperture Setting. Press the right arrow to enter the Aperture Setting option, then choose Aperture Ring and hit OK. You will then be able to use the aperture ring to manage aperture when your D7100 is in "M" or "A" shooting mode. When in "P" or "S" shooting mode you will continue to see the "fEE" error if the aperture ring on your D Lens is not on the highest F number.

Answer: 
When using a D lens on a DSLR you must lock the lens' aperture ring at the minimum aperture (highest f-number). This allows the camera to control the aperture and will remove the FEE error.

If you prefer to use the Aperture Ring to manage aperture, you can do this by changing the D300's Customize Command Dials option. For more information see page 307 of the D300 manual which can be downloaded from here: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an....

Please see this article for more information on the FEE error: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an....

Answer: 
Yes, The D9-0 has an internal focus motor so should be able to work with pretty much every DSLR lens made, since around 1959.

Does this lens have an internal focusing system? In other words, does the front element turn when the lens focuses?

Got this lens yesterday and every time I unlock the aperture ring and change to anything other than 22 my camera (D5000) wont allow me to shoot and gives me an error message 'lock lens aperture ring at minimum aperture (largest f number).' This is regardless of what settings I have on the camera itself.

I dont understand why the lens has a scale if my camera wont allow me to use it. Please help

Answer: 
The aperture is set by the camera not the lens which is why you have to lock the ring at F22. The ring is only used to change aperture on older film cameras.

If i turn the aperture ring to 1.8f and back to 22f (lock) the problem goes away.
