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.

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!

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.

Yes... will work fine, providing 75mm equivalent field of view on your camera, in that it is a "crop" (DX format) camera. That's a near ideal range for portraits, as is the f1.8 aperture. To go a bit wider and to get to the true 50mm view on your D40, pick up a 35mm f1.8 Nikon lens also. Inexpensive at $200, and nice image quality.

The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Standard Lens is compatible with the D40. Since that lens has a built-in focus motor (the AF-S designations stands for Silent Wave Motor), you will have full autofocus capability with the lens and the D40. Please see your camera's manual for more information regarding lens compatibility and limitations.

Question

Indoor low light

Is this a good lens for low light indoor portraits? I used my kit lens at Thanksgiving in the evening and didn't get very good results. Pictures were grainy with harsh shadows.

Yes it is, but you will nee plenty of room since it's too long for small places. If that's your case, better go for the 35mm 1.8g

With its fast f/1.8 aperture, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G will capture even low-light situations with stunning brilliance.

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.
