What�s in the box: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G Lens, 58mm Snap-On Lens Cap, LF-4 Rear Lens Cap, HB-47 Bayonet Lens Hood for AF-S 50mm f/1.4G, CL-1013 Soft Lens Case, 5-Year Warranty (1-Year International + 4-Year USA Extension).
The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 is an excellent companion to any modern Nikon SLR camera, whether film or digital. Small, lightweight and affordable, it's also a winner in the optical departmen
he Nikon 50mm F1.8 G is no exception. A lightweight, no-frills lens on full-frame DSLRs, it offers an effective focal length of 75mm on Nikon's DX format, making it very useful for portraiture and low-light candid photography at a bargain price.
The Nikon 50mm f/1.8G lens features the same deeply-recessed front element design that has been seen on Nikon’s standard primes for decades
It's compatible with all of Nikon's digital SLR cameras. I'd skip the 50mm f/1.4G AF-S, and get this 50mm f/1.8G or jump to the optically superior 85mm f/1.4G AF-S.
it is sharper than all of the predecessors, including the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G at largest apertures. I was quite surprised to see such results in my lab tests
the build quality is excellent and it handles very well. Optically, it is also superb, offering outstanding quality at a reasonable, although not bargain basement price.
The 50mm focal length is the closest any prime gets to being a generalist, which means it's not fine-tuned to excel at any one kind of photography.
the Nikon 50mm ƒ/1.8G AF-S is a fairly solid performer; stopped down to at least ƒ/4, it offers very sharp, contrasty images with little chromatic aberration and no corner shading.
The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G isn't the sharpest 50mm lens that we've tested, but it still offers excellent image quality at a modest price.
