I've owned the lens twice in the past and never really warmed up to it. I moved over to Canon for the past 16 months only in the last week moved back to Nikon with the D810. I also picked up this cheap lens again and I have to say on the D810 I found new respect for it.

Hey Justin, looks like your new d810 is working for you. Looking good. It was a long trip over here from the Canon forums! :lol:

Thanks, yes it's nice to be back home even though I had no complaints while shooting Canon!

Hi, I am considering this lens.
I'd like to buy a prime lens for portraits and internal shots and I have two options, this 50 F1.8 or the 85 F1.8, but I already own a micro 105 VR and perhaps the 85 is a bit too close to it in focal terms.
Thanks in advance.

Whether FX or DX I might go with 85mm. The f/1.8 will give you a bit more creative options than the 105 micro despite being close on focal length. The 50/1.8G will be much cheaper than the 85/1.8G though

This lens is great on FX. I mean its affordable, FAST, super light. (I still like the ART better, and didn't like the 1.4 better, maybe I had a soft copy?), so the 50G is a great value.

It's fun getting pictures with it too :)

It's a good little lens. Especially if you like plastic and China.

Yes, a good lens to say the least. Build quality is good for it's price-point, very good sharpness and contrast, quick enough and accurate AF...just a darn good lens.

IMHO, all the Nikon 50mm 1.8s are good. I own the 1.8G, and an older film days 1.8, and I've shot the most recent 1.8D, and I think they're all so close in performance that I would have no problem carrying either as long as I had a body that auto-focused the glass (and I do). The older lens isn't as sharp at 1.8 as the other two, but then I just close it to 2.0 or 2.2 and all is good.

Sure, I had both the canon and Nikon 50 f/1.8 lens. The canon literally fell apart one day while being used, bits of plastic and glass hit the sidewalk. I've had the Nikon over 5 years and it's still in one piece. IQ is excellent with it.
