Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor

1906NCP_180
Review Date: Aug 3, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $30.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Light weight, inexpensive, fast, sharp, nice bokeh wide open
Cons:
ugly bokeh when stopped down and pointed near lights - pentagon shaped highlights.

I bought this lens used for $30, which is a steal. I love the lens, its great and sharp. The OOF at F1.8 is great, it looks like a painting. I have had some trouble when shooting towards lights, not from flare but from the shape of the highlights when stopped down a bit - most noticeably at f2.8.

I'd buy another one in a heartbeat, though I don't think I'd get it for $30 again (luck is only so good).
