Ikhuyến mãi for: Perfect for use on FX digital, DX digital and 35mm film. On DX cameras, the viewfinder is usually at cthua kém to 100% magnification, making two-eyed shooting easy.

Not for: Rich people who just don"t feel right unless they pay a lot of money for something, or people who need no distortion, for whom the Nikon 50milimet f/1.8 AF-D has less distortion for half the price. Otherwise, everyone needs some sort of 50mm f/1.8 và not much more.

I personally suggest Adorama, Amazon, Ritz, B&H, Calumet & J&R. I can"t vouch for ads below.

This Nikon 50milimet f/1.8 G is Nikon"s latest iteration of their classic 50mm f/1.8 lens, first introduced in 1978. This new version adds the first new optics since 1978, & updates the traditional screw-focus system of 2002"s Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF-D with a modern AF-S system. Therefore, this new lens allows instant manual-focus override simply by grabbing the focus ring at any time.

This is Nikon"s first aspherical 50mm lens. Nikon"s only other aspherical normal lens is the 58mm f/1.2 Noct-NIKKOR, which sells used for thousands of dollars.

This is the world"s first 50milimet f/1.8 that autofocuses on Nikon"s cheapest DSLRs like the D3100 & D5100.

The previous 50mm f/1.8 lenses have sầu always been stellar optical performers, as is this new lens. This new 50mm lens is aước ao Nikon"s sharpest, but so are most 50milimet lenses from every maker.

Everyone needs a 50milimet lens, & it"s about the only lens you"ll need. This 50mm f/1.8 G is super sharp, focuses perfectly, and has superb bokeh as well.

This 50milimet f/1.8 G is one of Nikon"s best lenses at any price, and also one of their least expensive.

Compatibility intro top

Everything works perfectly on every digital Nikon, both FX and DX, & even on Nikon"s cheapest digitals like the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000 & D5100.

It"s also perfect on decent or recent AF film cameras lượt thích the F6, F100, F5, N80 & N75. I tried it on my Nikon F4, and it works great, although there"s no way to mix a manual aperture as explained below.

The incompatibilities for older or cheaper film cameras are that:

1.) It won"t autofocus with the cheapest new AF 35milimet cameras lượt thích the N55, but if you focus manually, everything else works great. Even if you lose autofocus, these cameras have sầu in-finder focus confirmation dots to help you.

2.) Late 1980s ~ early 1990s AF cameras like the N90s, N70 and F4 will focus just fine and you"ll have sầu Program & Shutter-priority modes, but đại bại Manual & Aperture-priority since you have no way to lớn phối the aperture on the camera or on the lens.

3.) You"re really pushing it with the oldest AF cameras lượt thích the N2020, N6006 & N8008. You"ll have no AF and very confused exposure modes. Manual focus is fine, along with electronic focus indications.

4.) Since it has no aperture ring, it"s just about useless with manual focus film cameras. It will shoot every shot at its minimum aperture.

See Nikon Lens Compatibility for details with your camera. Read down the "AF-S, AF-I" và "G" columns for this lens. You"ll get the least of all the features displayed in all columns, since "G" (gelding) is a deliberate handicap which removes features.

These all use the same glass as each other, but in different mounts. This G lens is the first new optical thiết kế since 1978.

The popular 50milimet f/1.8 AF-D remains in production, as it works fine on 35mm manual-focus Nikons, while this new G lens does not.

Overall performance top

The Nikon 50mm f/1.8 G AF-S is solid, inexpensive sầu và well made (by current standards that accept made-in-Trung Quốc plastic), and it"s a great performer. If you don"t already have sầu something similar, everyone deserves one of these.

Autofocus performance top


Autofocus is fast, easy & accurate. I wish everything worked this well.

AF Speed

AF is as fast as every other Nikon AF-S lens.

AF Accuracy

On my D7000, AF was always right-on, especially at f/1.8 where it matters.

Manual Focus

Manual focus works great; just grab the ring at any time.

The rubber ring is grippy so it can be moved with a single fingertip, although the mechanics are stiffer than real Nikon Manual-Focus lenses.

M/A - M Switch

Nikon goofed. This switch is supposed khổng lồ be labeled "A - M."

The "M/A" position means autofocus. It"s called "M/A" because you also can focus manually simply by grabbing the focus ring in this position.

The "M/A" position means autofocus. It"s called "M/A" because baông chồng in the old days, when Nikon had almost caught up to Canon who had been doing this for ten years before, Nikon was trying khổng lồ show off that you could focus manually while in the AF position.

Paint over the extra M if you"re easily confused.

Bokeh performance top

Bokeh, the character of out of focus backgrounds, not simply how far out of focus they are, is great. Out-of-focus backgrounds are always soft and never distract.


Ryan và Dada in Del Mar. (Nikon D7000, built-in flash, Nikon 50milimet f/1.8 G, Program tự động, tự động Trắng balance and tự động ISO chose 1/250 at f/5 at ISO 100.) Full-image at full resolution.

At f/1.8, it"s also smooth.

màu sắc Rendition performance top

I can"t see any difference from any of my other modern NIKKOR lenses.

Coma performance top

Any coma is minimal at worst, better than the earlier 50milimet f/1.8 lenses. I expected this from the aspherical design.

Coma (saggital coma flare) often causes weird smeared blobs to appear around bright points of light in the corners of fast or wide lenses at large apertures. In lenses that have it, coma goes away as stopped down.

Distortion performance top

This new 50/1.8 G has a moderate amount of barrel distortion, while all the other the 50mm f/1.8 lenses, especially the 50/1.8 AF-D which sells today for half the price, has none. You"ll never notice it, unless you like khổng lồ shoot brick walls.

If brick walls are your thing, this Nikon 50milimet f/1.8 sadly has far more distortion than any other Nikon 50milimet f/1.8 or f/2 lens, ever. Even Nikon"s very first 50mm f/2 lens of 1946 has less distortion than this new lens!

How could Nikon screw up such a simple & basic lens? Easy: by following the "two steps forward, one step back" Japanese strategic kinh doanh plan. This means adding a few showy new features, but quietly taking away something we really need. What we need is then added in the next version, as if it"s something new và wonderful again.

The 50/1.8 G"s distortion can be largely corrected by plugging these figures into lớn Photoshop"s lens distortion filter, however the distortion is slightly complex on FX, so it never corrects completely with simple tools lượt thích Photoshop. These aren"t facts or specifications, they are the results of my retìm kiếm that requires hours of photography and calculations on the resulting data.
