Love this lens it tends to stay on my camera all the time... It trains you to compose your image better too.

Someone just bought this lens from me second hand for 140 so this is a solid price for brand new! Heat!
This is a great price for a great lens.
My favourite lens! Once you go prime, you never want to go back.
Thanks for this. I've been watching this lens for ages but never drops in price at amazon or Currys. I have finally treated myself.
Great price, a grey import is £131, worth the extra £8 for peace of mind over warranty.

Chances of ever needing the warranty is pretty much zero.

I have been also looking to buy this lens from last couple of months. I read very good positive reviews about this lens So excited to use it next week.
Is this a VR lens? I have a Nikon d5300 and an looking for a good prime lens.

Lens is not VR however, you don't need VR for such a short focal lenght. I've owned this lens for about 4 years and never thought it needed VR. Brilliant piece if kit, highly recommended!

Great thanks, is it better to get 35mm or 50mm prime lens for a d5300? Really appreciate the advice
First lens I bought after getting a DSLR camera and it's been great, for anyone who is a bit of an amateur like me this lens is great for portrait photos where you get a depth of field effect (clear subject but blurry background) and is also good for low light.

Personal preference, I prefer 35mm. I assume you got an 18-55 lens with your camera? If so set it to almost full zoom and take some photos, this will show you what to expect with a 50mm, then set it at about half zoom and do the same, this will give you a feel for 35mm. Which feels like a better fit for what you want to photograph?
I have the 50mm lens..Can anyone advise how this is different to my lens, and are there any advantages in having both? Many thanks!

Mine went rogue within a year. Struggling with autofocus.

this would give a slightly wider field of view of an image than a 50mm.

I forgot to ask is this compatible with the Nikon D3200? Thanks!
Incase you didn't notice, you also get a 1 month trial for Adobe Creative Cloud. Excellent deal.

My kit lens did that, wondering if getting a new lens will get me back on track. Was your issue solved with a different lens?

Yes, with any crop sensor Nikon camera.28mm, 35mm and 50mm are usually the primes you should get first and at that price its a steal.
Managed to get sigma art 35mm 1.4 dg for £410 from cex. Excellent condition. Beautiful lens.

I've gone for the sigma art 20mm 1.4 , 35mm 1.4 and 50mm 1.4 from cex as they had it in one of their store at bargain price. Think I paid around £1100 for the lot. (I have a d600) I would've preferred the 85mm over the 50mm. Maybe when they get 1 in stock I can sell the 50mm and go for the 85mm.

I'm on the same page as adamdevlin on this one. I prefer the 35mm for a DX camera. Basically, the 35mm on DX, such as your D5300, is suppose to be similar to the 50mm on FX cameras.

Yes it works with the D3200. As for which one is better, whats the f stop on your 50mm?
Lots of lovely bokeh

35mm/50mm are both f1.8, the 50mm f1.4 will never be found for £140

The 50mm is a tad sharper, but you trade that off for a slightly wider field of view with the 35mm

33899205-rniO0.jpgGood lens, much nicer than lugging about 16-300mm tamron, and like others have said you learn to adapt especially if you're just an amateur like myself.

Very good setup you ve got there, agree, imo the 85mm on full frame is the most creative focal length, Ive got the samyang 85/1.4. The fast 35mm can cover the lack of 50mm.

Although I love fast primes, haven't manage to be happy without zooms, I have to improve my style I suppose.

35mm is a great prime lens. It's not too zoomed in. I loved the 50mm 1.8 on my canon but hated having to swap for taking group photos as lens was too zoomed in.

I have a 50 and wish I got the 35. I find that I always have to step back one more step than I want to with the 50....

(And I'm pretty tempted at this price!)

I found 50mm too tight for normal indoor shooting , 35mm was much better , traded the 50 for a 17-50 f2.8 sigma , and the D5300 can handle the iso increase if you need to bump it to compensate, but kept the 35 for video in low light, and for better bokeh when it matters.

Unfortunately mine did too 13 months old (12 month warranty) and the focus motor packed up altogether only lens this has happened with. Keep meaning to take it in for repair. Brilliant lens though some of my favourite pictures have been taken with it.
I'm looking for extra nikon lenses. Noob, I need to pack light as I'm traveling. Any recommendations would be appreciated
Great lens great price even though I’m from the other clan (canon)

Thanks will try taking some photos using the kit lens as suggested. I'm very new to this, cheers for the advice!
Bah! Bought it from JL two days ago.
Same price at Amazon now.
Would any of you experts be prepared to answer this question? I know a lot of people I speak to with decent cameras do not edit or print much. Not sure what they really do with them:

Question (excluding Pros who sell photos to Magazines, Advertisers etc.)

What is the point of really expensive lenses? All the above photos look perfectly good to me, and I am convinced a skilled Photoshop user can make almost any photo acceptable provided it is not blurred.

I recently bought a low end Canon DSLR, and although I am pleased with the results, I am not sure if the better quality is worth the extra weight and size when walking long distance or cycling Changing to a telephoto lens is a real pain. Even a compact camera is acceptable to me, and I have noticed that the vast majority now use Smartphones. I fish near a famous attraction and often take photos for people. Recently I would estimate 9 out of 10 are Smartphones. I am really surprised at the quality they get on a decent Samsung etc.
