Review Date: Jun 29, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $300.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Classic lens, compact, sharp!
Cons:
Made in China?

If you are on a budget, I would suggest you get the AF 50mm f/1.8 instead.

Pros: This is an absolutely extraordinary lens. It is as sharp at f/1.4 !
Cons:
Too Pricy and Bokeh is funny due to the aspheric element!

This baby lives for low light and effectively turns night into day. If you are on a budget, I would suggest you get the 35mm f/2.0D AF lens that will gives pretty good performance at about one-seventh of the price.

Pros: Awesome @ f/1.4! It's the lens I use the most on my D1x.
Cons:
Pricy for a lot of people.

Lots of people saying it is not worth an extra $1,000 for a stop compare to 85mm 1.8D. For me as a professional, I think it's worth every penny! This lens is very fast, very sharp and love to be shoot at f/1.4.
