No it won't. This is an F-mount lens. You need to look at 1-mount lenses.

Sorry but no it is not compatible with that camera. The Nikon 1 J1 is a compact system camera and mostly all the lenses and accessories will be a lot smaller.

It depends, but I would think not. You would probably have to stand way back from the property to be ably to capture everything depending on how big it is. Even a 35mm may be to long. If your D5100 came with a kit lens, that would probably do a better job on shooting properties as you can go really wide or fairly long. If you need yo go even wider than that, you would have to look into an ultra wide lens. Perhaps something like a fish-eye lens.

On a cropped sensor like the 5100 this will shoot like a 75mm lens on an old school 35mm film camera. It could take decent pictures of real estate. The 35mm fixed lens is also a low price and would be wider. The 55mm and the 35mm f1.8 lens are the best bargains once you get past the kit lens.

With a fixed lens you need to get out of the car and walk more. With the kit lens like the 17-55mm zoom you wouldn't. The kit len won't stop down as low so you'll need better light but then you don't shoot properties in poor light in any case. They need to look nice! Nothing beats better light.

The 17-55mm would do interior shots better and you could shoot at a high ISO and still not need a flash in decent light. For a realtor the kit lens might just serve more situations. You just wouldn't want to shoot in poor light in any case since you want a pretty bright picture. Stepping up to a Prime zoom lens might be better but would cost a LOT more and maybe not pay off for web based images. The 5100 can jump through lots of hoops and then some. Shooting raw images you can do far more than you could ever need. Even in auto mode the 5100 is an amazing camera.

No, this will not give you a wide angle shot, this is moreso for portrait photography. If you want something to showcase property as a realtor, you should look at the Tokina 11-16mm or Nikon 12-24 (EXPENSIVE!), it's a beautiful lens and use it every time I help my friend's dad with his realtor business and also for when I take pictures of landscapes and want to squeeze the most into one picture. Please note though that this camera is MANUAL FOCUS ONLY...but all you need to do is just keep it at 'infinity' and it will bring everything into focus easily and quickly. Dont let the "manual only" mode turn you off from the lens. They currently do not sell the Tokina in stores but I bought it from Cameta Camera through the Best Buy Marketplace. Hope this helps!

A US lens purchased from Best Buy will have the same warranty option as with any other authorized dealer... just make sure that it's the f1.8 that has the extended warranty, and not just the more expensive f1.4. Frankly, with a combination of Nikon's lens quality and the very low cost of this lens, you can't go wrong. Just don't buy a "grey market" import lens without a US warranty, as Nikon will not service such hardware.

Question

Will the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G AF-S Lens work with a Nikon D80? Auto Focus?

Yes. I have a Nikon D80. All the function will work, even the auto focus. Actually, the auto focus is very fast with this lens. However, only difference is that on D80, this will be a 80mm lens instead of 50mm (normal) on FX. All Nikon DX cameras have x1.6 crop factor. (D3100, D5100, D7000, D90, D300s etc...)

Hope this helps!

Absolutely; the D80 is a DX format camera that uses Nikon's F-mount for lens attachment. The 50mm f/1.8G is an FX format F-mount lens with a built in auto-focus motor. Since you'll be using an FX lens on a DX body, the focal length will actually appear more like 75mm than 50mm. There's also a 35mm DX format f/1.8G lens available at Best Buy... that one was created to offer an equivalent focal length of 50mm on DX format cameras.

Here's my suggestion: go to your local Best Buy store and take your camera with you. The blue shirts will be more than happy to let you try out the lenses in the display case on your camera so that you can choose the one that will work best for your purposes.

Question

Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S - Stock Issues - Anyone have the scoop?

Good Day All,

Leaving for vacation in a month and have had this lens on backorder from Amazon for almost three weeks with shipping times stated as 2-3 months (which usually means no one knows when stock will become available). I've noticed this lens is available in AU, which is closer to where Nikon manufactures their glass (China/Thailand/Vietnam) and am hoping this means the boat is on it's way with more for us.

I'd prefer to order the lens from BestBuy but since the lens is only available for in-store pickup and no store has them, I cannot ever place a back-order.

Does anyone @ BBY have any indication when stock is expected for this lens? If within 30 days, I'd prefer to cancel my backorder and wait it out...but do not want to guess.

Thanks!

Sorry, only Nikon knows when this may return to "normal". At least the Thailand plant is back in operation since the flood.
