$73.74


AF-S NIKKOR 50mm F1.4G from Nikon

The Nikon 50mm f/1.8G replaces the older Nikon 50mm f/1.8D lens (introduced in 2002). Compared to the AF-D version that has 6 optical elements in 5 groups, the new 50mm f/1.8G has a modified optical design with 7 optical elements in 6 groups, one out of which is an aspherical element (reduces coma and chromatic aberrations). The Nikon 50mm f/1.8G is the first Nikon 50mm lens that comes with an aspherical element; even the more expensive and higher-end Nikon 50mm f/1.4G does not have one.

  • Fast, precise—and silent—autofocus. A good lens capable of taking dozens of shots within a short time period needs to excel at one very important characteristic: autofocus. The Nikon 50mm lens does this in a number of ways. For starters, the autofocus is fast and precise, utilizing Silent Wave Motor technology (also known as SWM) to ensure that your autofocus does its job quickly and efficiently without drawing a lot of attention to itself. That’s the kind of reliable service even the most professional of photographers require from a versatile lens.
  • Plenty of user control. Let’s say that you’re more professional than amateur enthusiast, and you want to ditch the autofocus. The M/A Focus Mode Switch makes for easy changes between manual and autofocus. The aspherical lens element will ensure that you can take high-contrast shots in manual mode if you so desire, giving you greater control over the lens and more artistic license to produce something that’s entirely your own. The Nikon 50mm f/1.8might look like a point-and-shoot lens, but it’s much more than that.
  • Ideal, durable construction. The construction of the lens itself is of paramount importance—especially in a lens so versatile that you’ll likely always have it on you. The strong, sharp, and even rugged construction here looks heavy, but it’s lightweight enough to justify carrying this lens with you on every photography gig you procure. And if you wanted more assurance that it’s going to remain durable, you can utilize the Nikon 5-year USA warranty (a 1-year international warranty with 4 years of USA warranty added on).
  • Use at night if you desire. Customers frequently praise the ability of the Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens to do its job even in low light situations. This makes it perfect for sunset landscape shots, natural lighting affairs, and night parties like wedding receptions. This includes the ability to use the video features at night if you need to take live footage of those memorable events you won’t want to lose.
  • Consistency. If you’re shopping for a “do it all” type camera lens here at Adorama, then you need something with the consistency of the Nikon 50mm. It’s versatile enough to handle portraits, sports, studio photography, weddings, wildlife photos, and much, much more.
