    Cons: A bit of distortion Slow AF

    Pros: size and weight image quality is very sharp and the bokeh is nice

    Summary: This lens is a very sharp prime that produces wonderful bokeh wide open. It is very light and comes in a fair price. The AF is slow especially in poor lighting conditions. I highly recommend this lens to anyone who loves this focal length.

    Cons: not sure it would resist a fall, new nikon construction heh... must be stopped down to f2.5 for minimum optimal resolution on the entire frame, CA at 1.8

    Pros: quick AF, contrasty, discret, sharp in the center, very resistant to flare, decent price

    Summary: a good lens overall, the actual best option for nikon shooters

    Cons: Optical quality sucks before f/2.8. Focal length is uninspiring both on FX and DX. Bokeh discs even when used on DX are not perfect circles on the border of the image on any aperure. Slow AF, poor AF acquisition.

    Pros: Price.

    Summary: Cheap and worth the money when used stopped down to at least f/2.8

    Cons: None found, it being 75mm on DX is not a con for me.

    Pros: Sharp ( F3.5 ), fast focus, great colours, silent, nice build, lightweight, and it looks good too!! I havent found anything that i could label as a con. Only that the lens cant zoom, but hell thats not why i bought it.

    Summary: Very good value for money, sharp on DX, and it fits on FX! Lens used on D5000.
