AF-S Nikon 50mm f/1.8G
Who It’s For:
Everyone. Seriously. If you own a Nikon camera, this is just one of those lenses that you should own. Unless you own a 50mm f/1.4. The 50mm focal length is brilliant for full body portraits as well as street photography and anything in low light. If it was good enough to be the only focal length Henri Cartier Bresson trusted, it will be good enough for you.
What We Like:
Price: at just over $200, it’s a steal.
Optics: This lens is incredibly sharp.
What We Don’t:
Build Quality: If I had to come up with something I could say that the build quality is a little plasticy, but really it’s not an issue.
