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.
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.

Great lens for portraits when using on APS-C camera (D5200) as it behaves as 75mm on full frame, in terms of angle of view. Bokeh is great, better than with 35mm 1.8 Nikon DX lens. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Lukasz
