Nikon 28mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor

1921NAS_180
Review Date: Feb 24, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Fast, relatively sharp wide open, amazing bokeh.
Cons:
Price

There is vampire blood in this lens. It lives at night and can't get enough of it.

Bokeh is very dreamy.. almost paint-like... something almost impossible to find on other lenses.

If the Noct was Nikon's milestone in Ai/Ai-S, this is for sure the milestone in AF-D.


 
Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor

1906NCP_180
Review Date: Nov 14, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $80.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp. Dirt Cheap. f/1.8!
Cons:
None for its price. Maybe a more quiet focusing would be nice

The one I got is the old batch MIJ (New ones I believe are made somewhere else). The lens is RAZOR SHARP beyond f4. But even @ F1.8 it's an amazing lens.

An excellent portrait lens after the crop factor (75mm in 35mm) and it bokeh very soft. Very smooth to my eyes.

A must have bargain lens for any Nikon shooter.
