An essential lens if ever there was one, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G from Nikon is the classic normal-length prime featuring a bright maximum aperture and lightweight design. 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 suppresses 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.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Reviews
Very sharp. Works exactly the way I hoped it would. Look forward to exploring its possibilities.
The package deal was awesome. I really enjoy the lens and the filters and cleaner were a nice bonus. I would highly recommend.
It's a good lens that takes awesome photos. I was hesitant about buying it at first but I am very happy with my purchase.
A good choice
I mainly photograph birds with my Nikkor 200-500mm lens, but I wanted to take somewhat close up photos of flowers in my yard. I hope to also use this lens for scenery shots, but have not tried that yet. I like the image quality. But do note, I am a novice photographer. I am happy with this purchase. I didn't have a lot of money to put into another lens and this one was affordable.
Good quality, uncomfortable fit
I bought this lens to get better details in my photos - to be able to digitize artwork that is larger than conventional scanners. Compared to my kit telephoto lens, it's certainly an improvement. However, the fit to the body is uncomfortably tight, and a little gritty. My kit lenses are smooth as silk. I'm a little worried about what this lens might do to my mount over time. Fortunately, I don't change lenses regularly.
I bought this one to replace the one I gave my son..
Excellent prime lens!
Excellent lens, great for low light, portraits, landscapes and much more. Great service, Thank You B&H!
