Nikon Rumours has posted a comparison with the Nikon 50/1.8

 

https://nikonrumors....omparison.aspx/

 

This came as a surprise because I didn't realize that Yongnuo was now producing glass.

 

The Yongnuo didn't exactly blow the doors off the Nikon, but it is so cheap, who cares?  However, the old 50mm/1.8 D is already so cheap, that buyers might not mind paying a bit more for quality glass.

 

Still, this might be like Yongnuo speed lights:  It's so cheap that if something breaks, you haven't invested a fortune.  :)

Thanks for the post, Charles. 

 

At those prices, it's hard to get too upset if something goes wrong.  :)

Plus they have a low priced 35mm and 100mm. Give you options on the low end.

The photos from the Yongnuo have that washed look. Not as clear as the Nikkor, that I bought 2 months ago :)  It's nice to see the purchase was justified.


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

Lea, really glad to hear that you're enjoying the Nikkor 50mm.  I have the old D model and I love it.

 

Your point about the Yongnuo is very well taken.  My main point about the Yongnuo is that it is so cheap that it's hard to get real upset if something does go wrong. i.e. washed look.  :)
