    I know that wedding photographers will criticise me for doing this.And whilst not being the ideal wedding lens, I have shot entire weddings with a nikkor 50mm 1.8D lens on a Nikon D610 with amaing results. I zoomed with my legs. I have also done portraits and landscapes with this lens. This is an outstanding lens considering its value. I will give the lens a 4 and a half out of 5.
