Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S

Available Today

Nikon’s AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G Lens is an alternative to the classic 50mm f/1.4 “normal” lens for everyday shooting with an FX or DX camera. The 50mm f/1.8 is nearly as “fast” as the f/1.4 (just 2/3 stops difference in a smaller and less expensive package.

Aspherical lens elements reduce coma and other types of aberration, the Silent Wave Motor gives you smooth 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.

There’s a lot of areas where Nikon lenses frustrate me. But at the same time there are others where Nikon just blows everyone else away. The 50mm f/1.8 is one of those times. It’s just an excellent little lens, very sharp and with few flaws at an amazing price. Really, unless there’s some special need, don’t rent this. Just buy it. You won’t be sorry.
