Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G

Amateur Photographer - - Testbench | Round-up -


For MANy years, 50mm primes (or ‘nifty fifties’) were sold as gen­eral-pur­pose lenses with 35mm film cam­eras, but they fell out of favour for a few decades. re­cently, how­ever, there has been a resur­gence in their pop­u­lar­ity for use with APS- C for­mat DSLrs. they tend to be small, light and rel­a­tively cheap, yet very sharp, and per­fect for shoot­ing por­traits. Nikon’s AF-S 50mm f/1.8g is a clas­sic ex­am­ple of the type, and will also work on full-frame cam­eras. Don’t con­fuse it with the cheaper AF 50mm f/1.8D, though, which won’t aut­o­fo­cus on Nikon’s en­try-level D3000-series or D5000-series DSLrs. the lens has a 58mm fil­ter thread and a con­struc­tion of seven el­e­ments in six groups.
