Easy to use and crystal clarity
Full disclosure, my camera body doesn't support the auto focus in this lens, so I've only used it as a manual. That being said, I do a lot of portrait shots, so this lens is perfect for that and I would need the manual focus anyway. Super high aperture. I've used this in a dimly lit nightclub and taken pictures with the flash off and gotten clear pictures. (Used max ISO so there was a lot of noise in the pictures, but fixed that in photoshop). I love how crisp the pictures come out, and the bokeh is mind-blowing. Unedited portraits come out looking like something that took hours to blur the background on in an editing program. 10/10 would recommend. Both images are ones I took with the lens. Check out the bokeh.

One of the finest lenses of all time
I've been shooting Nikon for 35 years, and have owned about 20 Nikkor lenses. The 50mm f/1.8 Ai has the best IQ of all the NIKKORS I have (along with the 28mm f/2.8 Ai-S). It is probably the sharpest lens I've ever owned, and the contrast and color are at least as good as any Ai or Ai-s lens. The images it can produce with a tripod are nothing short of stunning. It is also an amazing value, and the 50mm angle of view, whether full frame or crop sensor, is essential for those who like primes, as I do. Over the past few months I've sold most of my modern plastic NIKKORS and am buying Ai and Ai-S lenses to replace them. They are better for video, and for landscape photography for many reasons: smaller, lighter, better made, and easier to focus in the field and offer much more precise depth of field focus (zone focusing is superb, unlike modern AF lenses). That last fact allows me to get everything in focus while using the widest aperture I can, every time, and quickly (before my hands freeze). Oh, and they are cheap.

Best Step Towards Pro-Quality Photos You Can Make
I really like this lens, and have been recommending it to any friends I know who own a Nikon. For less than $200, this is a quality lens that takes pro-level photos - even in minimal light. Do yourself a favor and purchase one of these beauty's today and take your photography to the next level. Things I enjoy about the lens: - I get fantastic quality in every photo - It's lightweight and hardly takes any room in my camera case - Can drop it down to f/1.8, which is fantastic for low-light and helps get that nice blurred background you've been wanting - Made by Nikon - It works on both FX and DX camera bodies - It's less than $200 - Versatile/staple lens for many situations Things that could be seen as cons: - It's a "prime" lens, so 50mm is what you get (but, makes it simple) - The Autofocus does not work on DX camera bodies below the 7000 series (though the manual focus is easy to use) Overall: - Buy this lens - you won't regret your decision at all.

Very good lens for still and video images with the Canon 5DMII
I ran across this Nikkor lens while shopping for the 1.4 to use for my daughter's video project with my Canon 5DMII. It was such a bargain and the reviews so positive that I purchased the lens and love it. Mounted on the Canon 5DMII, the camera becomes unobtrusive and better than the huge 24-70 mm zoom when out and about for street photos. The 1.8 is plenty fast compared to the f 2.8 on the 24-70 mm zoom with the Canon 5DMII. I later acquired the 1.4 and I find the images taken with the 1.8 Series E to be almost indistinguishable. Of course, the same advantages and limitations reported in my review of the 1.4 lens apply - shallow depth of field when shooting wide open, probably not as sharp as the Canon version of this lens, manual focus can slow you down but manually adjustable aperture, much faster and nonetheless beautiful images for the price of a Canon lens.
