$399 new, a much more compelling price for a kind of confusing FL.

Let's hope they follow suit with the smaller sibling. If not, this is a good price for brand new where you can send it back until you get a great copy with precise AF.

45 is really pretty close to 50. What's the reason for this lens instead of the Nikon 50/ 1.8 at about half the price?

Just curious.

I wonder if the vibration control would help with a body such as the d850

45mm is actually closer to the true 'normal' focal length which for an FF camera is about 43mm. In old days it was pretty common to have fixed lens cameras with a 45mm lens as a single 'do-everything' FL. 50mm is really a 'rounded off' version of the normal FL. Even in practice I like 40-45mm FL's more than 50mm, which to me is a bit too long for a general purpose normal lens.

Absolutely correct.. Diagonal length of the sensor is considered as normal focal length, in FF case it is 43.2mm.
35 mm wide enough for walk around and close to Normal range.

I've read that you can focus VERY closely with this lens, making it almost macro worthy.

45mm isn't a bad place to be both inside/outside, if you're stuck with a prime.
Therefore, I could use a 45mm as my "all arounder", for family/travel.

So basically, I'm saying that I'll give this lens a 30 day tryout. I will have it in my hands at 1145am tomorrow.

Thx Ben, for spending my monies.

I believe the 35mm is the lens that is near-macro, though I believe the 45 also focuses closely, but not quite as much.

I've been using the 45mm quite a bit lately. Great piece of glass and shouldn't be overlooked. Especially at this price.

You're welcome. I expect a full review on my desk by the end of the week .


As a side note, I when I called it a confusing FL, I am not comparing it to the human eye or anything like that. I'm speaking simply about 35/50/85 feeling normal for me. 45mm on FX or 67.5mm on DX seem like really in-between kinds of lengths. The stabilization could be the thing that makes this thing really rad. $399 really does seem like the right price though.

I'm sitting on 20 28 58 105 (my 85 is f/s)
I may look to sell my 58, so I'm going to give this 45 a whirl.

Even without, 45 would fill that weird gap between 28/58 really nicely.

Now that's a great price! Over here in the Netherlands we are not so fortunate: 779 euros including 21% sales tax Or maybe proces will come down here too...

It has VC (VR), and it is sharper at the widest apertures, while focusing closer, and has weather resistance.

It is larger and heavier though.

Hopefully it means he hasn't been able to set it down long enough to type his initial reactions
