Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 Reviews

A camera changing gift

I offered this to my gf who bought a Canon eos something :D I knew it would open a world of possibilities compared to the slow basic good lens that come with the camera. As an amateur, she has been taking amazing photos and videos with it. A inexpensive awesome asset to any new EF tool!

Good for the price

I've had this lens for a couple months and the only problem I've had is the auto focus, its loud and misses focus a lot but is still a great lens for 60$

It's respectable

At this point I'm only putting images online and this does well for basic stuff, times when I want a light lens. I also have a lens that's well toward the other end of the price spectrum; in non-challenging environments, it's challenging to tell which pics were taken with which lens.

Great Lens for a Great Price

This lens is perfect for the camera we purchased. We worked with the salesperson on the live chat who directed us to it. Thanks so much, the price was right and the quality was great.

Almost after 3 year of use I'm writing my review. This lense simply delivers what it promises -- it's inexpensive and offers better than reasonable image quality. I certainly recommend it as a first 50mm lens for beginner photographers.

Better than expected

Yes, as the Yongnuo YN 50mm f/1.8 Lens for Nikon F has a built-in micro-focus motor, the lens is fully compatible and would be able to autofocus on the Nikon D5200 DSLR camera.
