Nikon 50mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4D Lens from Nikon is a very effective standard length lens compatible with both FX and DX format Nikon DSLRs. It delivers distortion-free, high-contrast images with superb resolution and color rendition. With a maximum aperture of f/1.4 it is fast enough for shooting in just about any type of light and offers impresive shallow depth of field focus control. Weighing only 8.1 oz, it is easy to carry with you. This is an ideal first lens; perfect for full-length portraits, travel photography or any type of available-light shooting. It accepts 52mm filters.

For more accurate exposure control, the "D" lens subject distance information is transmitted from the lens to the camera body, providing 3D matrix metering and 3D multi-sensor balanced fill-flash with appropriate Nikon cameras and Speedlights. Autofocus is not supported by D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300 cameras; the lens may be used with manual focus only. Be sure to check your camera's lens-compatibility information before selecting a new lens.

A very fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 enables shooting in low light and provides shallow depth of field control for achieving pleasing background blur.
Distortion-free images with superb resolution and color rendition.
Manual control of the aperture means you can make smooth adjustments, even during Live View shooting.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating offers multilayer coating of the optical elements for improved light transmission and reduced ghosting and flare.
Compact and lightweight

    Nikon 50mm f/1.4 reviews

    AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4D Autofocus Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 654.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from results to cherish! ok, here's what you do.. instead of reading on the countless positive reviews and thinking about wether to buy this or the 1.8 version, save a little and buy this one instead! you will not be disappointed. i shoot with this lens at weddings, stage, and occations when there is a little room to walk around indoors without a flash, and you know what i get? AMAZING results! the sharpness, contrast, colors, bokeh, and the critical focus you get wide open that allows enough shutter, low ISO with handheld shots during low or availabe light is something that you will appreciate very much about the lens. use it with confidence!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for video and photo! I am primarily a wedding videographer and have been using my D750 with the 24-120 F4 and 70-200 F2.8 mainly. (I also use a D7200 with the Tokina 11-16 and 17-55 F2.8 on a Glidecam) I have never owned a 50mm and finally decided to pull the trigger for something different this season... and wow! It sure is different! The bokeh off thing lens in fantastic! Also, the lens is very sharp and produces great colors. I have now been using this lens about 50% of the time on all my shoots so far in 2016. On the photography side, the results are the same. Beautiful bokeh and great colors. Wish I would have gotten this sooner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exelent Lens Exelent image quality,sharp and fast. For years I used 5omm 1.8 D and decided to upgrade.What a difference, this lens bearly leaving my D700 now,and my 24-70 and 70-200 2.8 are covered with dust. I put them on my camera only when I shoot weddings because of their zoom capabilities. I have only one remark: This lens is very delicate, I hit it a bit in front when it was on my camera and lost autofocus.Sent it for repare and after $ works as a new. I heard the new version 50mm 1.4 G is much tougher and with the same image quality. Probably spending a bit more money will save you headackes later unless you are very careful with your equipment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great choice I ordered the 50mm f1.8 but sent it back, really cheaply made.The f1.4 is also made in China but much better quality.Optically they are both very good lenses but if you shoot a lot the f1.4 is a better investment.It may cost x3 times the f1.8 but really worth the effort.Also make a nice 75mm portrait lens on digital SLR.(for the little story: all my Nikon lenses (6) are made in Japan except the 50mm, on the 50mm MADE IN CHINA is write in dark grey on black, almost invisible, on the others lenses, MADE IN JAPAN is write bigger and white on black !).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mine was made in China not made in Japan I don't understand why every one thinks that this the f/1.4 is made in japan it clearly is marked on the under side as being made in China. This is a great lens I haven't had any problems besides it being so bright that in certain lighting conditions my shutter on my D300 is not fast enough to not over expose the image. People need to get rid of their objection to items made in China. Also it is not a metal body like every one seems to think. It is a plastic body the mount however is metal, which I believe is what they meant to say. Great lens I'm getting awesome images with it and great boka as well

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for low light and portraiture This is unequivocally one of my favorite lenses, and one that I use very often for general portraiture, small-venue concert photography, and any situation where available light is questionable. While not extremely sharp at f/1.4, I have used this lens to get sharp handheld pictures in rooms lit by a single low-wattage bulb hung from the ceiling. By the time you stop down to f/4 and smaller, the quality of the glass becomes very evident. The only con I can think of is that if you attach a lens filter and shoot with a bright light source in the frame, this lens seems more apt than some others to get flares or ghosts.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The prime I reach for most... It's probably my shooting style, but this is the prime that I reach for most with my D90. I don't currently have a great wide lens, so that may factor into it too. This little lens does a great job with portraits and is perfect for just walking around the city. The optics are good and sometimes great. The lens is a bit dated in terms of features, but I haven't found it necessary to upgrade to the f/1.4G based on performance...maybe the next iteration. Overall, I really love the lens. I'd give it 4.5 stars if possible, but alas I'm stuck with either 4 or 5. If the optics were consistently great I'd give it the higher rating, but a solid 4 it is.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's been good to me. If you want a good old school lens to just leave on your camera at all times this is it! It is not quiet because it uses the motor inside of your camera to focus (no silent wave motor), but it allows for faster focusing than the AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G Autofocus Nikkor Lens. If you need a little more speed save money and get the D. If you need better bokeh try the G. The lens is assembled in China, but the parts are still made in Japan as far as I know. I love my 50mm.
