Most Bang For The Buck!

This may be Nikon's least expensive lens and it is one of the best. It works on auto focus with the D80 but not with the D40 or D60 but that shouldn't stop you from purchasing. Manual focus is no big deal aat all. I use this lens mostly to do landscape and photo's of flowers. Of course you have to move your feet since it is a prime lens but that's no big deal either. This is a great walk around lens. Sharp as a tack. Can't think of even one tiny negative. Buy it, you'll love it!

Great inexpensive lens. Fast, sharp, can't afford to not have one of these in your bag.

Awesome lens!


from Massachusetts, USA

This lens is one of my favorite lens I owe. It comes with me on all shoots and is a preferred lens when that focal length works! I use it on my D800 with amazing results. Awesome sharpness and fantastic bokeh, highly recommended lens especially for the price!


Great lens for the price


from San Jose, CA, USA

Been using this lens for about 8 years now. I personally didn't really like the 50mm range on the DX, but loved it on my FX. I really like the color this lens brings out, and the bokeh it produces. The only thing I find a bit annoying about this lens is the noise of the focusing when set to AF.

Great Lens


from Edmonton, AB, Canada

Running it at about 75mm on a DX camera. It is a sharp fast lens that works decently indoors without a flash. Don't miss it not having VR either as with the f1.8 lens it is quick enough in most situations you won't miss it. Everything I read so far was right. You do need a fixed focus lens for your first DSLR and this is a great one for the money.

This is problably best money spend on lens ever


from Undisclosed

Coming to prime lens which is a further extensive decision that i took, I got stuck with lot of options. There are too many prime lenses available and was unable to find the best one suitable for me. I have gone to many reviews and recommendations through out the net finally i purchased this lens. What can i say.. its so awesome for street photography and Bokey is just Bockelicious..! (sorry my spellings are wrong) The lens is very fast and very compatible with my D7100. The AF speed good and decent, and it can be overdrive anytime- I found this more useful feature - better than 1.8D. Sharpness is good wide open and excellent from 2.2 and up- the tested copy of 50mm G's on SLR gear site must be a lemon copy ( also at 2.2 has little less vignetting and bokeh fringing), contrast is very good wide open and it's not hazy(!) like in other primes wide open apertures. It' renders good natural colors with neutrall feel in them perhaps little towards warm side and not very ''cold'' looking ( at least on my copy). A lot of people say that 50mm is useless on dx- I don't agree on this I think this is totally fine focal length on dx !


50mm f/1.8G Af-s Nikkor Lens

I use the lens at indoor Basketball Games. It is great in the low/yellow light situations. Love it!

unable to focus properly


from Outer Banks

Just got this lens....brand new. First, I have a very hard time putting it on, and taking it off my camera. I feel as though I will break either my camera or the lens. Second, it will not focus at all. When I look through my viewfinder it's a blurred mess. Third, I believe the focus ring is messed up. It seems like a cheap plastic mess. I will try one more time, but It will probably be going back. My Canon has a great 50mm 1.8. No problems with it at all.

AF-S NIKOR 50mm f/1.8 G Great great lens


from Gilbert, AZ, USA

Works with D50, great lens, good for indoor low light. Happy with it. recommend it.


Great glass, auto focus problem


from Kansas City, USA

While this is indeed a sharp as a tack lens, it is undermined by persistent autofocus problems that have been an issue for at least 3 years so far as I can tell. When focusing using the viewfinder the autofocus is phase detect. With my D5300 this results in consistent autofocus error in lower light at close distances. No matter what I do, the focus is about 6 inches behind where I'm trying to focus. When using the LCD screen autofocus is correct. I've been told and read this is because autofocus is contrast based when using the LCD screen. Not everyone has this problem. Nikon has offered to pay for shipping the lens and my camera to a service center, but I have declined until I can find out what they propose to do.

I was deciding between the 1.4 and the 1.8. After reading many reviews, I picked this lens, didn't disappoint!


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Pat T  Will this lense fit a D40 camera? If so will it work om auto focus?
NATHAN L  No. The AF-D lenses need the screw-drive mechanism on the camera body to autofocus, only available in Nikon's more expensive digital bodies. See kenrockwell (dot) com for his compatibility chart.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DONALD G  Good light basic lens.
MEL L  Will this lens work with my D5100?
LOUIS C  No it will work on models that have an internal body motor. You could use a fully manual lens (no motor) but I am not sure how your light meter would work. I know on my D7000 I can use fully manual Ais, and AF lenses.
