Only a few days ago I informed you about me recent purchase of my prime lens. The Nikon 50mm f/1.8D. Guess what, yesterday Thom Hogan published a review of Nikon’s 50mm lenses (click here to read). For those of you who don’t have the time or don’t want to read the whole article, here’s a quote:
“If you’re just looking for a dirt-cheap fast 50mm prime to use on occasion and have a body with a screw-drive focus ability, the 50mm f/1.8D is a reasonable choice if corners aren’t overly important (as they often aren’t when you use this for portraits on DX).”
I think those were exactly my considerations to buy this lens. It’s a bargain. I have a Nikon DX body and do portraits mainly. So, thank you Thom for sharing my opinion and confirming I have made the right choice.
