Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

A compact and fast lens that is perfect for travel and portrait pictures, as well as general photography / f/1.8D / 50mm / Compatible with 52mm Filters Stops down to f/22 for excellent depth-of-field control.

Technical Details :
* High-speed normal lens.
* Great for travel and for shooting full-length portraits in available light.
* Distortion-free images with superb resolution and color rendition.
* Provides high-contrast images even at maximum aperture.

The Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm F/1.8D is a high-performance lens with the following specifications:
* Lens Construction: 7 elements in 6 groups
* Closest Focusing: 045m/1.5ft.
* Filter Size: 52mm
* Dimensions: 2.5 x 1.7 in.
* Weight: 7.9oz.

This lens produces sharp pictures and great color and contrast. And for its price (which seems to climb recently), it is worth more buying. I initially get this lens for low light action and sport photography (as this lens is famous for being one of the fastest lens together with its brother 50mm f/1.4), but I also found out that this lens is also perfect for portrait and other general purposes (macro etc). This is definitely a very versatile lens.

1. Very fast (f/1.8).
2. Very sharp pictures (especially when stopped down to f/2.2, f/2.5 or more).
3. Great for sport/action photography.
4. Great for indoor and low light situation.
5. Great for portrait.
6. Bokeh is almost as good as many expensive Nikon tele-lens.
7. Fast autofocus.
8. Good for wedding photography (or no-flash event). However, if this is your main objective then you might want to get the 50mm f/1.4 version or 28-70mm f/2.8 lens).
9. 75mm equivalent which can be considered a short tele lens.

1. Being prime lens, you need to move your feet a lot to adjust/compose.
2. Auto focus issue in some situations.
3. Plastic build.
4. Auto focus does not work with D40, D40x, D60 and D5000. The newer 50mm f/1.4G AF-S lens or 35mm f/1.8G AF-S lens will auto focus with those cameras.
