Nikon 50mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor

1902NCP_180
Review Date: Nov 7, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $250.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: excellent optics, compact size, razor sharp depth of field, great low light performer
Cons:
none other than the cheap printing instead of engraving

This is one of nikons finest lenses. dont make its size and price fool you as this is one of the sharpest lenses in my bag. its small, sleek and compact and should be in every nikon users bag. its also darn fast and the bokeh is very appealing. not harsh as others claim it to be. since most can be had for cheap in the used market, i suggest you get it. you wont be sorry

 
Nikon 28mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor

1921NAS_180
Review Date: Nov 7, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $800.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: fantastic build, hand ground aspherical front element, great low light capabilities, very fast lens, nikkor cult classic
Cons:
noisy autofocusing, tends to hunt in the dark, steep price, questionable aperture ring integrity

Overall i really love this lens and feel very priviledged to actualy own one. it takes some getting used to and the noisy autofocusing can be quite a drag but once you get the focus down and click the shutter you will be blessed with spectacular images. this lens is called the "lightmagnet" for the reason it is very capable of making the most of ambient lighting.

get this lens, if you can still get your hands on it as it has been discontinued. but be prepared to pay big
