Nikon 50mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

Distinguishing itself through its classic styling, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition from Nikon is an updated version of this venerable prime featuring a re-envisioned exterior and knurled focusing ring. Corresponding to the natural field of view, the 50mm focal length is well-suited for a wide variety of subjects, including everything from landscape to portraiture. The f/1.8 design suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables controlling the focus position for using shallow depth of field techniques. One aspherical element is featured in the optical design to minimize spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness and accurate rendering. A Super Integrated Coating also suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. Additionally, the Silent Wave Motor affords fast, quiet, and precise autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override

Special Edition of the 50mm f/1.8G lens features a classically styled exterior, designed to match the Df DSLR, as well as a knurled focusing ring for improved tactile response.
Normal-length prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provide a 75mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture contributes to both low-light performance as well as offers greater control over depth of field.
One aspherical element is used to greatly reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to achieve high sharpness, clarity, and accurate rendering.
Super Integrated Coating has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

    Nikon 50mm f/1.8 reviews

    AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly sharp & well-designed This lens is a significant upgrade from the 1.8D and well worth the price. While the Special Edition lens is essentially an aesthetic upgrade over the 1.8G, I do love how it feels in my hands, how it looks, and overall it feels like a sturdier lens than the 1.8G (that's worth the additional cost to me). Even wide open this lens is incredibly sharp. I took it through a series of tests, and it exceeded my expectations, especially between f2.8-11.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lens Investment This is the one of the best Nikon products that I have purchased. This is my current favorite lens to use. I purchased this lens a year ago, and have taken over 4000 pictures with this lens, and am quite pleased with the results. I have used this in weddings, and senior proms, and the results were fantastic. I have also used this in theme parks, and as a general walk around lens, in a street photography style and have shot some amazing photos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is stellar. I've been using this lens around a year now and it has impressed me each time I put it on my camera. I use a crop-sensor DSLR so sometimes it gets a bit tight in certain situations, but when shooting portraits its performance is unmatched. The fast f/1.8 aperture allows for really creamy bokeh and a shallow depth of field that really separatesthe subject from the background. Not to mention it has great low-light performance as well. This lens is really superb for the price and the special edition aestheticupgrade is really worth the little extra money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bokehlicious! I bought this mainly to take great pictures of my kids. It is spectacular. This is my first 50mm 1.8g. I'm a newbie photographer. After reading a lot of review and watching videos about whether one should be getting a 50mm or not. I love this lens. not only It has a reasonable price it is also awesome. hope to learn more and trying more lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! It is as represented.. Good optics and good ergonomics overall. It's so light which is the best part. It's the same lens as the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have lens Got this to take more portraits of my nieces and random people still trying to get used to it I was normally using zoom lenses this is my first fixed lens but so far so good

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD AS IT LOOKS I have four 50mm Nikkors colleted over many moons.This one is now my favorite.
    Date published: 2018-10-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOWzer, Love the light. Received as a gift that I will own forever. Absolutely fantastic lens, seriously fantastic. Its a light weight lens, near nothing to hold, but it delivers. Great retro look, which reminds me of the 50mm f1.4 manual lens of the 80s.  If you get a soft focus photo with this lens, you did not get it in focus (and it nails focus fast). Its a super sharp photo making lens. Recommended!
