A great portrait lens. It gives clear, sharp photo's with good colours.
Very, very pleased with this lens.
Bad points:
Not really a bad point, but the screw-in lens hood seems a little old fashioned.

Good points:
You simply cannot go wrong with the 1.8D lens. For price and It's built well, it'll last for many many years - no AF-S motor to break down. It’s a simple design built to last. Buy it over a slow zoom any day! I recently bought this lens for use on my D300 I know will not work with manual but can use manual on D300 and works great and auto too
You simply cannot go wrong with the 1.8D lens. It's sturdy, very well built, compact and fairly light weight - balances nicely on the D300. The screw in metal hood also protects the front element and a lot better than the plastic lens hood of the G and with a 77mm lens cap works well and never need to take it off but still get a UV filter for it.
The sharpness is excellent and the bokeh are smooth and buttery.
