Owner reviews: Nikon AF Nikkor 50 mm f/ 1.8 D

dittohead 1.1.2000 00:00:01
Period of use: 6 months

Strengths:

Price: for this money an amazing glass.

My sample has a sharp 2.0.-2.2

Aperture 1.8 is also working.

On Nikon d90 focuses perfectly. Misses do not happen. Of course I would like to USM, but that's a lot of money)

Iron bayonet.

Weaknesses:

On the crop sensor still not very well.


Comments:

After the film I decided to buy a normal camera lens on a digital camera, and have not regretted.

Price $ 100 is consistent with the quality. Good focus, good picture, nice bokeh
