  • Nikon 50mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Slightly soft at large apertures

    Nice, fast lens! Slightly soft at larger apertures, but the images take sharpening very well, so there's no reason to avoid that end. That's one of the main reasons for getting this kind of lens, right? Nice soft bokeh. Metal mount, unlike the plastic mount on the cheaper 1.8 lens. A bit noisy on my D70s when focusing. Overall, an excellent value.
