About Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G Special

Save $28.89 when you buy this Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G Special . This Value Bundle comes with a Adorama Cleaning Kit, Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G Special, Pro Optic 58mm UV Ultra Violet Filter and a ProOptic Universal Lens Cap Tether and Shipping is free! .

The lightweight, compact AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition from Nikon is a great travel companion, especially when you need to freeze fast action or if a bright sunny day turns overcast. Its fast f/1.8 maximum aperture makes framing and focusing easier, and allows for high shutter speeds and full exposures under dim lighting conditions.

When shooting wide open at f/1.8, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition renders beautifully blurred backgrounds (bokeh). Make a tack-sharp foreground subject stand out against a softly blurred background, a capability especially well suited for portraits. The lens' 50mm focal length (75mm on DX-format cameras) approximates the angle of view of our eyes, perfect for creating natural perspective in your photographs.

The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition is a remarkable blend of classic exterior styling and modern optics and lens technologies. Its focus ring features the easy to grip knurling/hatching from classic manual focus lenses, while its autofocus system uses Nikon's innovative Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, near silent precision focusing. SWM also allows for seamless manual focus override when fine adjustments are desired. The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition will give you years of brilliant performance.

Filled a hole in my line up


from san angelo, texas  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Needed a good fast 50mm to fill a hole in my line up. Very pleased. Purchased as "used" with an E rating. When I opened it I could find no evidence of previous usage. It works great and I'll enjoy using this lens. Very light weight and photos are crisp and sharp.


50mm 1.8d


from New Jersey  -  Photo Enthusiast

My D7000 work with the 50 1.8d perfectly and it auto focus cause the camera as the built in motor. Sharp pictures. Always great to buy from Adorama specially on super sale items. I have no regret purchasing this lens for about 90 dollars. Thanks again Adorama. Alex


Cheap fast prime lens, manual focus


from Harrison, Me

This lens is a steal for the money . I use it with my Nikon D3200 it only works in manual focus but it's F/1.8 aperture is great for low light conditions. I have used this lens to photograph stars, landscapes and people, a nice prime lens takes better pics than the kit lens that comes with the camera.


Wonderful prime lens


from Citrus County, FL, USA

I love this lens. I use it on my d7100 and the results have been excellent. It is great in low light, very sharp, focuses quickly, and gives great crispness and color fidelity. At the price, this may be the best bargain in camera lenses, period. I highly recommend this lens for any camera with a focus motor in the camera (7000 series or higher).


Great Product


from Brunswick, GA, USA

I feel as though this lens is fast and crisp. I use it for wildlife and portraits. very versatile for aprime lens!


Great lightweight lens!!


from Melbourne, FL  -  Professional

I love bringing this lens on a second body. It is very lightweight, sharp, quiet and of course, has beautiful bokeh.

My Go-To Glass


from Columbia, SC, USA

I love this lens. Watched Youtube videos where some reviews made critical comments about it being plastic instead of metal. That means nothing to me. This was my first lens, and it is miles beyond the kit lenses. This lens will immediately increase your confidence in what you can do with your camera. You will become very familiar with the word "bokeh" as you use this lens.


wouldn't autofocus at first.


from McKinney, TX

Just got the lens today and right out of the box I couldn't get it to autofocus on my Nikon D7000. This lens seemed to be a very tight fit when I twisted it onto the camera body. I could manually focus the lens, but couldn't get it to autofocus. After several minutes trying different things I by accident discovered that the lens release button had not popped out after twisting the lens on. I slightly backed the lens off till the button popped out. Problem solved! The lens will now autofocus. Now to see what kind of pictures I can take with this little jewel.


loving the nifty 50..


from Bronx, N.Y.  -  Semi-Professional

I'm using it with my D 7000 which makes it a very nice portrait lens.. it's light weight, a lot of plastic but doesn't feel cheap. Can get in close for the tight shots. A fast focus and image quality is great.. Things that aren't so great.....Haven't found any yet..


Perfect Portraits


from Raleigh  -  Photography Student

Received this lens in perfect condition! I absolutely love it and have used it for portrait photography. It has very sharp facial focus with beautiful background blur at f4, which is what I mostly use.
