Great lense, on my camera 90% of the time right now. Heated
Edited by: "daBluone" 9th Aug 2012

Great standard lens for digital format.

I can only agree. I use it 99% of time on my Nikon D80. Very sharp and fast. I bought it for about the same price 2 years ago.

This lens hasn't come off my D3100 since our son was born 2 months ago. It gives great images and works very well indoors.

I really, really, really want one of these, will have to make do with my £8 M42 lens I got off evil bay for now tho :-(

Great lens and good price. Heat added.

Heat added! Seriously tempted.

Also works on FF with some vignetting.

These types of lenses are a must first buy for anyone getting a DSLR.

Man, this site is going to make me bankrupt... my lens lust is back Have 50mm 1.8D already but had to get this lens.... great price!! Hot! Thanks OP!

Does auto focus work with D3100?

Great lens and price for Nikon owners.

I've borrowed a friends D3000, they have this lens and AF seems to work fine. Can only assume it'd therefore be fine for D3100

AF-S means it has a motor, so yes.

Yes, any Nikon lens with the prefix 'AF-S' has focussing motor built into the lens

I ended up with this last time the 50mm came up as I have a D90 and though the 50mm would be too narrow.

This is great for a variety of subjects.

Thanks a lot, just ordered one.

Heat added.

I prefer the 50mm to the 35mm. But this is a great price.

I want but can't afford at the moment having just bought 70-300mm but good find OP.

Am I missing something here or is the lens in this deal not the same as this which is cheaper at £145.00!

EDIT: I see OP has actually mentioned to check down the right of the Amazon sale page for better deals for same lens. Well done

I bought this very Lens on Wednesday evening from Amazon for £144.95 sold via Britain Deals. Just waiting for dispatch. :-)
Been wautching this lens for quite a few weeks and it has been at £145 for quite a while.

Heat for price. I have it already but don't think I would buy it again.

Why not? Besides that youd have 2 of them.

It is a great lens, but I think it is seriously overpriced. In the 1990 you could get these for a fraction of the current price.

Much like a lot of things. Dont think this lens was available in 1990 (Mar 2009).

I bought one not that long ago and sometimes wonder if I should have got something a little wider. No real regret though as it is a good lens!

What is it for? i have the Nikon 3100. Pardon my ignorance

It's a great lens for portraiture shots (too narrow really for landscapes etc). With the f1.8 you get great depth of field which makes for great images. Sharp head with fluffy, blurred background - really brings out the subject.
Even at night time this lens will give you spectacular bokeh's (circular out of focus blobs behind the subject - usually lights etc.)
I have the 50mm 1.4 (had the 1.8 and got greedy) I still say these 1.8 prime lenses are worth every penny.
Buy it, you WILL NOT be dissappointed!!

Great lens good price heat added.

Good point.lol
I think I would get a 20 or 28 if I had to choose again. I also have a 50 f1.4 and find it better than the 35. Just my opinion.
You will either use it a lot or hardly at all.

If you want everything in focus in a particular shot, will this lens oblige?

Thank you

Just to add to what everyone else is saying. This is the best lens to get after the kit lens that came with your SLR.

Its a great lens. I bought it for my nikon D3100 couple of months back at £180. The shots are really impressive. Heat added..

Know what you mean, with primes its like that. I also prefer 85mm on FF over 50mm.
