  • Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Bang for Buck, Weight, Sharpness
    Wider would be better

    Although landscapes are not the strength of a DX equivalent 75mm lens, the 50 1.8D can produce very nice results stopped all the way down in low light. I have achieved very sharp results with surprisingly balanced contrast at f22 in evening cityscapes. The 50 1.8D is a fantastic first lens that shows developing photographers the advantages and limitations of prime lenses and will inspire lust for much more expensive glass.
