Product description

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

Tolles Objektiv! Ich würde mal behaupten das die Bilder für das Objektiv sprechen. Sie wurden in der Dämmerung aufgenommen mit Blende 1.8, ISO1000 und Einer Belichtungszeit von 1/500 mit einer Nikon D5100.

Reviewed in India on 4 June 2018
Very good lens if you are tight on budget.Nice for potrait but I will not recommend it if you are using dx format camera due to crop factor you cant accumulate whole group in a single frame.I would suggest to go for 35mm Nikon lens.It is having a nice bookeh effect (see d pic).Sharp pic good for low lighting Scenerio.Can be used both by Professional and Amature.

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

Ich habe dieses Objektiv nun schon mehrere Jahre und den Kauf bis heute nie bereut. Es hat in meinen Augen eines der besten Preisleistungsverhältnisse. Ich habe die Linse damals für unter 200 Euro gekauft. Das Objektiv gehört einfach in jede Fototasche!!!
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.
Volle Punktzahl!
Besser gehts nicht zu dem Preis!!
Kaufen!
