The precision of a prime lens

Performance in any light

Fast enough for low-light shooting

The AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D is fast enough for shooting in most lighting situations without a flash—from dusk and dawn to dim indoor lighting. Its aperture control ring allows for manual adjustments during Live View shooting. Broaden your shooting opportunities.

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
Best kept secret If you honestly think you have to spend a boat load of money on a 50mm you are sadly mislead. I have used this lens on my D800 for the last 15 months. So, before you bash D800 users for using this lens, keep in mind that this glass is so sharp it will make you weep. Exactly what a D800(e) needs. Exceedingly light, fast focus, dead on sharp. This is a great walk around lens and honestly after spending money on the holy trinity and a few other lenses "pros" tell you you must have....I keep this on almost always. For the price you can not go wrong, you will be more than pleased with it's performance. Get it, you won't be sorry. The only other 50 I like is the 50mm f1.2 AI-s, but this 1.8 is just so much more fun. October 16, 2013
Awesome sharpness! This lens is fantastic, fast, sharp and bright! A great lens to walk around with and not take up much space! April 22, 2013
Excellent inexpensive little lens. I have owned this lens for some time now. I do not use it often since I shoot wildlife but when I do, the pictures are always sharp with excellent contrast. April 1, 2013
Captures great pictures on a budget! For its price this is an amazing lens. A must have for the camera bag. The build is stable even if being made out of plastics. Also a must for anyone who wants to learn photography. March 30, 2013

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.

Answer: 
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D5100 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

You may want to get the AF-S version of this lens.

This is my first real lens I am getting (I have only used the kit lenses) for my D3100. What are the drawbacks of pairing this with a D3100. I've read that the autofocus doesn't work, but might no be a deal breaker because I don't want to spend the extra one hundred dollars for the G. Also, it sounded like I read somewhere that you can also only change the aperture on the body, and I would prefer the manual aperture ring to setting it on a body. Really, the root of my question is, for the D3100, is it worth getting the G rather than the D? I am only sixteen years old, so the hundred dollars does make a difference.

Answer: 
Nothing wrong with learning the art of manual focus. All modern DSLR's the apeture is adjusted on the body, you have no choice.
You must set the apeture ring to f/22 and leave it or you will get a lens error message on the camera.

I plan on using this lens in the following modes:
aperature-priority
shutter-priority
auto

Do I always need to lock the aperature at F22? What does this accomplish? It seems that this would simply lock the lens at F22, but I know this isn't the case. Thanks. Bruce

Answer: 
The aperture is controlled by the camera so the lens has to be locked at F/22, if you were to use it on an earlier file body with no aperture control then you would use the ring.
