  • Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor

    3 out of 10 points and recommended
    Fast, very inexpensive, reasonably fast AF.
    Images at f/1.8 are not really sharp, not even at the center. The lens has sever flare problem, particularly for night photos where one gets strong "ghost" images of any light source at, or near, its field of view.

    I have been using Nikon cameras and lenses for several decades. This is not one that they should be proud of. If you must have a fast "normal" lens for limited amount of money, it's is OK, but you get what you paid for.
