- Ranked Second in Best Nikon Prime LensUsing a DX lens on a full frame DSLR introduces a crop factor—which takes away the benefit of using full frame. While the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G Fixed Lens is the best lens for DX format cameras, the AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.4 Fixed Lens is the best option for full frame Nikon cameras.

- Great Lens but a bit pricey for beginnersPros: Speed and Quality
I'm am a DSLR beginner. Just bought my first DSLR and always want to get the shot of the blurry background. I bought the Nikon D3200 with the starter lens kit (18-55mm 3.5/5.6) ... didn't get the blurry background. So I read around the internet and learned that I need a lens that could do F 2.8 to achieve the effect I want. Looked around and found this lens 50mm prime 1.4. It was beyond my budget. I intended to spend about under $200 for my "test" lens ... which I can get the 35mm 1.8 for about $220. But this 50mm was on sale at Bestbuy so ... I read some good reviews about it and gave it a try. And it is a great lens. My first shot out of the box, I tried the maximum aperture 1.4 and the background was so blurred out and I was happy with it. It is still pricey for me but it comes with 5 years warranty from Nikon. So I decide to keep it and it is my primary and only lens now. It's fast auto focus ... great color ... good lens.Read full review
- Low Light and PortraiturePros: Nice Bokeh; Lightweight; Great in Low Light; Rugged
I needed a prime to handle two situations: low light concert photography and family portraiture. This lens rocks in both applications. On my Nikon 5200 DSLR body, which has a crop sensor, the lens behaves like a 75mm lens. Take a step back and you've got a lovely shot framed up, with great color reproduction, low distortion and dramatic bokeh. A great lens for a great price.Read full review
