Product Details

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f1.8G Camera Lens - 2199

Features:

  • Fast, f/1.8 compact FX-format prime (fixed focal length) lens
    This updated classic with a fast maximum aperture is ideal for everyday shooting, perfect in low lighting situations and great for producing images with beautiful background blur (Bokeh). The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G includes Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) for fast and precise autofocus, M/A Focus Mode Switch for seamless changes between manual and autofocus operation and an aspherical lens element for outstanding optical performance with high contrast
  • Get astonishing low light results
    This lightweight standard lens is a great travel companion because you never know when a beautiful, sunny day will turn cloudy and rainy. With its fast f/1.8 aperture, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G will capture even low-light situations with stunning brilliance
  • Achieve more natural depth of field
    Whether you're shooting portraits, food or nature—indoors or outdoors—the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings. And its 50mm focal length is perfect for creating natural perspective in your photographs
  • Shoot tack-sharp portraits every time
    Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare, while the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G's Aspherical Lens Element (AS) virtually eliminates coma and other types of aberrations, even when shooting at the widest available aperture. Pair that with Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for fast, accurate and quiet autofocus, and you can be sure all of your portraits will be tack sharp
  • Quiet Autofocus
    A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon's Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation
  • Quick Switching from AF to MF
    When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring—M/A mode allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag
  • Effective Aberration Correction
    Since the 1960s, aspherical lenses have been an important part of the NIKKOR lens family. Virtually eliminating coma and other types of aberration, every new addition to the lineup provides a new level of contrast, resolution and compact design
  • Reduce Lens Flare and Ghosting
    Nikon's Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced lens flare

This is my 4th Nikkor 50mm prime. I purchased a 50/1.4G ~three years ago, but did not like it due to its lack of sharpness and contrast at the first 3 stops. Having expected a better product for the money at that time I returned it after a week. This new 50/1.8 is technically amazing! At short distances it is very sharp already at f/1.8. At longer, landscape distances, it is sharp at f/2.2. For most situations, it stays pretty consistent until f/14, and then the picture quality clearly drops off at f16. That''s a pretty large range of useful apertures set in 1/3 steps! Compared to my other 50mm lenses, it outperformes the older, manual 50/1.8, with regard to corner sharpness and contrast, especially wide open, but it does not hold a candle to the manual AIS 50/1.2 whith regard to color reproduction and bokeh. With my 50/f1.2, pictures more often turn out to be vibrant and alive, whereas this new 50/1.8 seems to produce very accurate, but also a bit sterile results. The above are my personal (non-technical) impressions. Comparing lenses solely at an objective, measurable, technical performance level does not do them justice, IMO. Each lens has its own character, and some are more suited for certain situations, motives and camera bodies, than others. It takes time to really get to know a lens, and I still learn something new about my gear even after having owned it for several years. That said, user reviews always need to be read with a grain of salt. Nevertheless, if you are in the market for a modern 50mm prime, this lens maybe is the best product for the money right now. I wholeheartedly would recommend it to my best friends.

Just got this lens....brand new. First, I have a very hard time putting it on, and taking it off my camera. I feel as though I will break either my camera or the lens. Second, it will not focus at all. When I look through my viewfinder it's a blurred mess. Third, I believe the focus ring is messed up. It seems like a cheap plastic mess. I will try one more time, but It will probably be going back. My Canon has a great 50mm 1.8. No problems with it at all.

Great Lens

By 

from Chicago, IL, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f1.8G Camera Lens:

After getting my D3300 with the two (2) kit lenses, this is was my next purchase. Now this lens is my go-to lens for portraits during family events and documenting our baby's first few months. Make sure you get comfortable with aperture priority and open this up all the way to 1.8 and be amazed at what your photography can be with some decent glass and excellent shallow depth of field. I've managed to get some amazing shots indoor during the early evening in low-light situations without a speedlight, which always prompts the question what flash did you use and when I say nothing everybody wants to know the lens I use. The humble 50mm prime as made me a believer - nifty fifty indeed !!!

This is a fantastic lens. Paired with my D3300 the photos are super crisp and beautiful. This is now my go to lens for outdoor and a majority of the shooting indoor as well. Great choice.

BEST Lens.

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f1.8G Camera Lens:

This is my favorite lens. Once I got it, I couldn't stop using it. The pictures come out extremely sharp. Everyone wants me to take pictures of them now that I have this lens because it's THAT good. It's a steal for the price it's at.

Wow!

By 

from Willingboro, NJ, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f1.8G Camera Lens:

A friend of mine let me test his first, then I rushed to go get myself one. Best lens I ever bought in the 20 years of my photography career. Ive been using Tamron and Sigma for years, now I regret it. Tack sharp for portraits. Bokeh is beautiful. Now I am selling my Tamron and Sigma lenses.

Excellent is low lights

By 

from Sri Lanka

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f1.8G Camera Lens:

Very good performance in low light with no distortions But there are some chromatic aberrations near by highlights, but it is not too high As overall this is very good for portrait photography and low light photography and for landscapes also...

Amazing photos

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f1.8G Camera Lens:

A major upgrade to my previous lens, the starter lens of the Nikon D3200. The focus is much more intense and better. The f/1.8 allows me to place my shutter speed higher. It's just overall amazing and better.

My Favorite Lens

By 

from Bakersfield, CA, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f1.8G Camera Lens:

I am by no means a professional at what I do, but I can tell you that this lens is phenomenal. I participate in yearbook at my high school where we have 15 different cameras with tons of different lenses and this is the only one I will use. In fact, I just bought a D3300 for myself this last week and made sure to pick up the nifty fifty 1.8G with it. Absolutely love it!!

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f1.8G Camera Lens:

I purchased this lens for the second after the first was stolen and I realized the magic of photography is properly back with it, again. Currently I am using this with the D7200 and the results are amazing. It's a stunning lens and is a must have for every photographer !
