Product HighlightsFast f/1.8 Compact FX-Format Prime LensBeautiful Background Blur (Bokeh)Superior Color ConsistencyReduce Lens Flare and GhostingEffective Aberration CorrectionFast, Accurate and Quiet AutofocusQuick Switching from AF to MFCompatible With DX FormatNikon'sAF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G Lensis an attractive alternative to the classic 50mm f/1.4 "normal" lens for everyday shooting with an FX or 35mm camera. The 50mm f/1.8 is nearly as "fast" as the f/1.4 (just 2/3 stops difference), and provides reduced lens flare and ghosting (plus superior color consistency) through the use of Nikon's Super Integrated Coating. Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration.Nikon's Silent Wave Motor gives you smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation, and the M/A mode lets you quickly and easily override the autofocus system for fine manual focusing with almost no time lag. This lens is also compatible with DX cameras. When used with a DX camera, the angle of view would be equivalent to 75mm.Fast f/1.8 Compact FX-Format Prime (Fixed Focal Length) LensThis updated classic with a fast maximum aperture is ideal for everyday shooting, perfect in low lighting situations and great for producing images with beautiful background blur (Bokeh). The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G includes Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) for fast and precise autofocus, M/A Focus Mode Switch for seamless changes between manual and autofocus operation and an aspherical lens element for outstanding optical performance with high contrast.Get Astonishing Low Light ResultsThis lightweight standard lens is a great travel companion because you never know when a beautiful, sunny day will turn cloudy and rainy. With its fast f/1.8 aperture, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G will capture even low-light situations with stunning brilliance.Achieve More Natural Depth of FieldWhether you're shooting portraits, food or nature-indoors or outdoors-the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1

Generally 50MM (used on FX modle) field of view is what your eye can see with some crop of 10meters.So choose wisely between 35mm and 50mm
Eines ist immer auf der D90 und das andere wird auf der D810 verwendet. Im Vergleich zu Sigma Art, den neuen Zeiss und diversen hochpreisigen natürlich nicht so extrem scharf bei Offenblende(leichte CA's), dafür aber leicht und ab 2.8 superscharf.
Klein leicht, günstig, ordentliche Abbildungsleistung auch bei 36MP.
Wenn man nicht gerade mit einem 1kg Objektiv rumlaufen möchte, dann ist dies eine absolute Empfehlung!
Die Qualität ist einfach unschlagbar und die Bilder selbst bei Offenblende knack scharf. Man kann das Objektiv auch problemlos an Vollformatkameras benutzen, was den Kauf noch interessanter macht. Ich selbst nutze es an meiner Nikon D5100. Das war damals meine erste Festbrennweite. Was soll ich sagen? Einmal in den Genuss einer Festbrennweite gekommen, wird man gleich süchtig.
Ich habe mir danach auch das 35mm 1.8 dx von Nikon gekauft, welches ich auch wärmstens empfehlen kann. Das 35mm ist ein noch ein ticken schärfer und die Brennweite ist noch universeller einsetztbar (z.B.auch im Innenraum mit weniger Platz)
Jedoch ist von dem 50er das Bokeh schon um einiges schöner und gerade für tolle Portraitaufnahmen prima geeignet.
Besser gehts nicht zu dem Preis!!
It felt good quality and built to last and was a nice size when on the camera, the adjustment dial on the lens body was a nice feature also which isn't available on the 35mm version.
However, I found the fixed zoom level of 50mm didn't suit my camera of photography style in the end, I hadn't factored that as my camera (D7200) wasn't a full frame camera then this lens with crop factor is effectively more like having a 75mm lens, therefore was a little too much zoom for me for general use.
I exchanged it for the 35mm version which is slightly cheaper, but this works much better for my needs, using this one on my camera body I get roughly the 50mm I was looking for and the quality of the photos does not seem to have changed.
I can still get very good bokeh effects easily and it takes great photos in different scenarios and lighting, much better than my kit 18-140mm lens does in general, although this lacks the flexibility of the zoom level of the kit lens, so I think with these two lenses I don't need to carry too much and I get a great flexibility when needed.
Considering the price of some lenses, i think this is great value for money if it fits the style of photography you are looking for, just take into account the difference between using it on a full frame camera or APS-C type with the crop factor. (50mm vs ca.75mm)
