Well to start with these lenses were on my list since a while and thanks flipkart for making it at such a bargain price of just 7674/-, It was something which was irresistible, Coming to the lens Nikon has showed a lot of love by including a Hood and a lens pouch which adds more value to the lens pack, Will start shooting soon and post another review of the lens pic quality though i don't doubt its capabilities....
A Nikon FAN....
I have received this lens on 7th March, 2014 and found that this lens is far better than 18-55mm lens in clarity and sharpness in photography. I am disappointed with 18-55mm lens but after purchase of this one, I am happy and satisfied with my photography. Great deal.
No-one should hesitate a bit to buy this prime lens. Between 35mm & 50mm i suggest one should buy 35mm for DX format DSLR as it's angle of view is wider than 50mm.
I am using this lens Nikon D5300.
As always flipkart.com prices its product well below any other retailers.. I got it for Rs.8,260/- which is half of the MRP !
I am glad to have bought it.
Sharp, brilliant in low light , superb bokkeh .. probably a cliche .. But I can keep repeating as
many times it would take for ppl who are not convinced to buy this . Absolute Delight to have it .. Small yet powerful .. Definitely needed for ppl who have purchased a dslr and haven't used anything else other than the kit lens.. Would motivate u to experiment more as this lens would just not fail.
Flipkart delivery is impeccable.
This lens will just make you an addict. It will make you try various types of photography. The Bokeh effect is just mind blowing. The lens is compact. Comes with a pouch to carry the lens and a Hood fits perfectly. Works brilliantly in D3100. If you want to try photography this lens would help a lot. Flipkart's in a day delivery was really great. Also the Packing was awesome. Keep up the good work.
This Nikor lens is a must have lens for anyone serious about his photography. This focal length is very good for indoor shooting, night photography, street photography and general day to day shooting on a APS-C crop format sensor. This has good use for environmental portraits but not very suitable for head and shoulder type shots. You can still do that by cropping your photos provided your gear supports high number of megapixels. The bokeh is nice though not excellent.
I was not sure for long if I should buy 35mm or should go for 50mm, but finally took the plunge and went for this as 50mm would have been very restrictive for the indoor shooting. Also 50mm is near portrait lentgh but still not good enough length on APS-C crop sensor. May be in future I will buy 85mm for the real portrait shoots. Go with this or 50mm depending on what kind of photgraphy you usually do, both are total value for money with no compromise on image quality.
Flipkart service as usual rocks and my recommendation is to always go with wsretail as they are the best out there in terms of processing your order and taking care of refunds & replacements.
I have a 50mm f/1.8D which I love to bits. It is small, light and performs very well for the price. The issue is that it gives a focal length of 75mm on my DX cameras. When I am into an aimless shooting schedule, I end up having to carry two cameras and the 50mm finds my way onto my FX camera. However there are times when I go out only with my DX camera for general photography and the 50mm becomes limiting as it is not wide enough.
This is the situation I am trying to remedy with this lens. On my DX cameras, the effective focal length now becomes a healthy 53mm which is good enough. Which means that in a one camera situation I have the standard focal length.
This is my feedback on the lens:
+ve Lovely bokkeh for the price
+ve Even though it does not affect me, this lens will autofocus on all Nikon DSLRs
+ve Not tested in low light, but this is some seriously fast glass
-ve Build feels flimsy, specially the hood
-ve I might be nitpicking, but I like to have the aperture ring so that, maybe I can use the lens on a film camera
-ve Why only DX, Nikon? When are we going to have good alternatives for FX that do not force us to break the bank? The 35mm f/2 is a very old design and the other is very expensive.
In my opinion, the lens' positives far outweigh the negatives. Go ahead and buy this instead of the 50mm lenses if you plan to stick to the DX format for some time.
On Flipkart - superb experience with the delivery of this product.
Loving it on my D7100.
One of the best lenses on the market. One of the main benefits of owning a 35mm is that it gives a field of view of approximately 50mm on a DX camera which is the standard for full frame and same as that of the focal length of a human eye. It does have some barrel distortion but nothing so serious which cant be handled during the post processing.
A must for all the Nikon DX owners. I would recommend it as a replacement for the kit lens (be it 18-55 or 18-105). Anyone thinking of buying a new DX, just go for the body only package and grab one of these. A fixed focal length will surely make you think before clicking any pictures. It will make u learn the art of composition.
Lastly, the lens is tack sharp at f 2.8 and the vignetting is kept on a check. The build is good if not great (don't expect it to be build like an L lens). Great for portraits, indoor and street photography. The price to performance ratio is astounding.
