Known for its reliability, clarity and devotion to the needs of passionate photographers, NIKKOR the exclusive lens brand from Nikon, is on a quest to create the finest optics in the world. And with the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens you get just that. Boasting a remarkably lightweight and compact body for such a fast aperture, this superb fixed focal-length lens is the ideal camera companion for those on the move.
A great choice for portraits, still-life shots, low-light scenes and more, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens is an affordable option that every passionate photographer can appreciate.
Life Through a Lens
Whatever your ideas, experience or creative vision, there is always a NIKKOR lens to draw out your potential. This 50mm FX-format standard lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.8 gives photographers an effortless way to shoot beautiful background bokeh and get a broader range of shooting opportunities in low light. These conditions also lead to a brighter viewfinder image making it easier to achieve the very best composition.
Providing outstanding optical performance, the lens comprises 7 elements in 6 groups, in a design with one aspherical lens element. The iris diaphragm has seven rounded blades for a soft rendering effect producing high quality natural backgrounds. Featuring a newly designed optical system, the aspherical lens element offers superior image quality. Eliminating the problems of distortion and other types of lens aberrations, the aspherical element also contributes to the lighter and smaller lens design.
Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason why professional photographers like NIKKOR lenses. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) converts travelling waves into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and super quiet. So for discrete shooting you can set up the shot in an instant and camera focusing won’t disturb sensitive subjects like wildlife.
Combining ease-of-use and maximum precision, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens has two focus modes. In addition to Manual focus, Manual-priority autofocus (M/A) allows you to switch from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time lag, even during AF servo operation and regardless of the AF mode in use. This gives all the benefits of fast, automatic focusing while still retaining the ability to make fine focus adjustments before taking the shot.
Cleverly crafted in a way that only an optical manufacturer can understand, Nikon creates technologies that make NIKKOR lenses the best choice for any type of still or moving imagery. Omitting the need for an aperture ring, G-type lens aperture is controlled electronically through the camera. Electronic adjustment is not only very efficient but also allows Nikon to place a weather sealing on the lens mount, so you can shoot with complete confidence.
With the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens from Nikon your images will take on a distinct personality.
 Focal length of 50mm when used on a camera with an FX sensor. When fitted to a DX-format DSLR this lens has an angle of view equivalent to that of a 75mm lens in 35mm  format.

Even more importantly, the 1.8G is SHARPER than the 1.8D, 1.4D and 1.4G wide open. Compared to the 1.4G, its sharper across the entire frame when both lenses are at 1.8, plus remains sharper all the way to F5.6. If sharpness is critical to your work, this is the lens to get out of the nikon lineup. The results given on both the D300s and the D3 are exceptionally good and the lens will make you think more about composition and depth of field when you look through the view finder more, compared with zooms.
This lens gives truly superb results, detail is wonderfully sharp and much more like the equivalent of a film camera. I've attached some sample pictures and hopefully you can get an idea of the quality I'm getting.
Things to note are:
This lens is fixed at 50mm. It isn't a zoom lens so you'll need to frame your pictures a bit more carefully by moving around, closer and farther away. Because of the much higher quality you can crop photos down to frame them correctly. 50mm is still going to bring your subjects closer, e.g. it's great for portraits, and also for scenery. You'll get lots more exercise leaping around to get the pictures you want :). The lower aperture means the lens works in lower light without the pictures becoming grainy. You can take "macro like" shots, again simply because of the clarity and cropability.
In the clock tower photo I was some distance away. What is left after cropping is just the middle third of the original. I've also zoomed into the clock face in another sample so that you can get an idea of the detail being captured.
Like the title of this review says, this lens made me love my camera even more!...
I bought the lens about 6 weeks ago primarily for portraits as it was cheaper than taking our newborn baby to a photographer for a photoshoot I was sure I could do myself! One floppy hat and a wet t-shirt (don't ask) later and we were well away!
The depth of field this lens offers at f1.8 is beautiful and because it's so wide, it lets in loads of light so shooting in low light conditions is still quick and produces much better results than using the flash. The grandparents are visiting now so its coming in handy again for portraits with them and is easily my favourite lens right now!
It's the first time I've shot with a prime lens so it takes a bit of getting used to moving yourself into the right position for the shot rather than using zoom but once you remember that, it's well worth it! I particularly like that it can be switched from fully manual focus to manual/auto so even when you have it in the auto-focus mode, you can still finely tweak the focus manually: a must for getting exactly the right point in focus!Read more ›

It is a Nikon so it is good with the Nikon price but worth itPublished 4 hours ago by Mr Alan Myall
Like other Nikon prime lenses this is a gem. As good as the F1.4G in my opinion and much less expensive.Published 12 days ago by Paul Mackey
Using this lens at least 6 month with my D90, so it's more like a 50mm lens there due to the crop factor.
Despite being a plastic body, it feels well made. Read more
Great lens. I use it 90% of the time. It's extremely sharp if you use it well.Published 1 month ago by joost vanhoutte
