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
Clear, Clear, Clear
After a long absence, this lens has gotten me back into photography.
A gift excitedly received.
I purchased the lens for my son so that he would have more flexibility when taking pictures in lower light conditions. He has been taking outdoor motorsports pictures for some time but has wanted to expand his experience to indoor photography. He was very excited to receive the new lens because it helps move him into that arena.
Perfect Everyday Lens
This lens is my go-to for everyday, multipurpose use. I can't recommend it enough.
Very Useful for the Price
I love this lens for black and white pics. It helps to mask the slight loss of sharpness in this lens. But to the naked eye, it can produce impressive shots with the correct lighting. I set my focus speed to max and was happy with the results. Shot it with my NIkon D5300, and my Z7ii. The pic I added here was with the Z7ii. For the price, you can have a lot of fun with this lens and not feel like you're giving away any real quailty in the results.
A good lens for the money.
I did not want to take my D810 and 24-70 f2.8 on a recent cruise to the Panama Canal. So, I took my trusty old D700 and the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Lens that I purchased from B&H. This made it as light as possible and not take up too much space in my luggage. It worked very well and the photos were pleasing. I always shoot with one of my zoom lens, so this was a bit of a challenge getting the shots I wanted. It all worked out but I really missed my NIKKOR 24-70 f2.8.
very good for its cost
