Good F-mount prime lens for those still shooting Nikon DX DSLR cameras (e.g. D3500, D5600).
Looks like Amazon are price matching Harvey Norman.
Classic piece of kit, for crop sensor though
Absolutely beautiful lens, paid $299 for it like 4 years ago. Highly recommend!
Great price for probably the best everyday DX lens, use this as the main and keep a zoom in the bag
Hands down the best value lens for Nikon crop cameras.
Packs a punch and useful all round
I prefer the 50mm but good lens.
Meanwhile Z mount prices have all gone up
I listed some of the other lenses on sale in a comment under the other bargain node - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/701977
Is this lens good for wide angle?
Simply put - and it is 'simply' - this is the closest equivalent of a 50mm lens on a full frame camera, and is neither wide angle nor zoom, being the closest approximation of what the naked eye can see when you shoot a frame.
I'm soooo tempted, but I've got the 1.8 50D so can't justify it.
And to think I bought the Sigma 30mm 1.4
While I don't think I paid the $679 RRP, I'm pretty sure I paid more than $178
Plus with the Sigma lens, I had to buy a dock for it so I could update the firmware on it so it would not be rejected by my updated Nikon body.
Price is back up to $293.25 on Amazon so I ended up getting the 50mm for $208 from Havey Norman.
Thanks, I've marked the deal as expired now
