In this video and blog post I go over my feelings about the Nikkor 50mm F1.8 lens.
I got this lens a few months back and have been using it and the quality of images are great. There are a couple of things I love about the lens.
- Cheap. You can get this lens used for about 135.00 to 200.00 dollars depending on your local camera store. I got mine cheap and I used layaway (best thing ever invented) to get my lens. You can see if your local camera store my provide layaway. You can pay small payments over a period of time then you can pick up the lens. This is how I have purchased 90% of my gear.
- Great quality glass. It is a beautiful lens. It is small and compact yet also creates beautiful Bokeh and color representation. At least my lens does. I think it all depends on where you get your lens from and the amount of usage it has had.
- 35mm Cameras! I can use this lens on my Nikon FM2 and also on my DSLR. I get auto focus on my DSLR which is a major plus. I can switch back and forth between my oh so loved Nikon FM2 and my D7100.
The lens creates clean and beautiful photographs. If you are looking for a very affordable
lens to toss in your bag and get some great photographs, I do recommend this lens. Check out my video below for more info.
