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
Superb value for a very capable lens. I have been pleasantly surprised at the quality of images I consistently get from this little lens. For the price, there isn't much to complain about. No, it's not the sharpest lens in the world when shooting it wide open - nor will it produce the best bokeh at that range - but stopped down to f/2.8-4, you'll really see it shine. It will still perform well if you need to shoot it at f/1.8, but don't expect miracles from it. That said, you can't beat the clarity and quality you're getting for the price. If you have a camera body with built-in AF, this lens is a no brainer. May 4, 2014
Amazing image quality at an affordable price! I bought this lens for my Nikon D7000. I'm getting more into video so I needed a lens with an aperture control ring. With bodies like the D7000 and higher you can take advantage of the aperture control ring when using AF-D lenses. You have to enable this function in the D7000's menu. Its custom function f6. When enabled the aperture ring will allow you to change the aperture in live view and while recording video, which is a HUGE plus for videographers. I also have the 24mm 2.8D which is another great AF-D lens. Both of these lenses are all I really need for video. As for image quality well its sharp! very sharp. Its actually better then I was expecting. Its a little soft wide open which is to be expected. However stopped down a bit and this lens will deliver amazing detail and color. Its built quality is just as good as other D lenses. Its made of plastic but it doesn't feel cheap. It feels solid in the hand, plus its focus ring is nice and smooth with a little bit of resistance. As for auto focusing on my D7000 its fast to find focus. Its not loud like other people complain about. I mean yeah it makes noise but its not annoying. Over all I'd buy this lens again and again. I really hope Nikon keeps all of their AF-D lenses in production for a long time. They are small and compact plus they are affordable. April 19, 2014
Amazing addition to the AW1 with FT1 adaptor ! This prime lens turned my AW1 into a beast. Sharpness, wonderfull low light caption and control over focusing via the manual focus ring. You just set and lock aperture at 22 on the aperture ring and the AW1 controls aperture via the FT1 mount. The focus only works on manual though, but it's no big problem. The lens is still amazing and fun to use. Maybe an upcomming firmware update might add autofocus ability ? Who knows. This is still the best bang for the buck i've had ! April 16, 2014
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

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 D3100 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.

How does this lens work with a D3100?

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
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.

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.

In other for Nikon DSLR cameras to Autofocus with a lens, either the camera or the lens needs to have a built in focus motor. AF-I and AF-S Lenses have built in focus motor. Nikon DSLRs with built in focus motors have a Autofocus mode switch located below the lens removal button on the camera.

Answer: 
Hi Scott, there is nothing you are doing wrong. In order for a DSLR to Autofocus with a lens, either the camera or the lens needs to have a built in autofocus motor. Neither the D5200 nor this lens have a built in focus motor, and therefore autofocus is not possible. Auto focus is only possible when AF-S or AF-I lenses which have built in autofocus motor are used with the D5200.

Answer: 
Neither the AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D nor the D5200 have a built in focus motor and therefore autofocus is not possible.

Answer: 
It will not auto focus, neither the lens or the camera have focus motors.
You need lenses designated AF-S or the older AF-I both have focus motors.
