Best ''cheapo'' lens for Street Photography

If you're looking for a great lens for street photography that won't break the bank, look no further than the Nikkor 50mm f1.8D.


This lens is a classic, and for good reason. It's sharp, fast, lightweight, and versatile. You can capture stunning portraits, candid moments, and urban landscapes with this lens. The 50mm focal length is ideal for street photography, as it gives you a natural perspective and allows you to get close to your subjects without being intrusive. The f1.8 aperture lets you shoot in low light and create beautiful bokeh effects. The D version of this lens is compatible with most Nikon DSLRs, and it has a manual focus ring that is smooth and


precise. The best part is, you can get this lens for less than $150, which is a steal for such a high-quality optic. The Nikkor 50mm f1.8D is my best "cheap" lens for street photography, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to explore this genre of photography.
