The Nikon 50mm f/1.8G is the remarkably lightweight and compact 50mm standard lens. Boasts a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 that is ideal for low-light situations or when shallow depth of field is required, and contributes to a bright viewfinder image. The re-designed optical construction features an aspherical lens element for superior image quality and Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) delivers whisper-quiet operation. Great value for money, this is a superb additional lens for photographers on a budget.
Nikon‘s AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G Lens is an attractive alternative to the classic 50mm f/1.4 “normal” lens for everyday shooting with an FX or 35mm camera. The 50mm f/1.8 is nearly as “fast” as the f/1.4 (just 2/3 stops difference), and provides reduced lens flare and ghosting (plus superior color consistency) through the use of Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating. Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration.
Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor gives you smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation, and the M/A mode lets you quickly and easily override the autofocus system for fine manual focusing with almost no time lag. This lens is also compatible with DX cameras. When used with a DX camera, the angle of view would be equivalent to 75mm.
