About Nikon 50mm F/1.8

This Nikon 50mm F/1.8 Bundle comes with: 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.

wouldn't autofocus at first.

By

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..

By

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

By

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.

Great Product

By

from Oklahoma City, OK.  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Portraits at family gatherings and landscape portraits when traveling are primary uses but not limited to them. Low light photos of indoor parties are great. Focus is fast and bokeh is sufficient for my uses. Saved some serious bucks going with the f/1.8 vs the f/1,4. Save some money and buy this lens. You won't be disappointed. The only bad thing I can say in regards to this purchase is that I had ordered it to use for my Grandsons B-Day party, but the shipping took more than 3 days so I missed that opportunity, and some great photo shots.

Great fast prime lens!

By

from Austin, TX, USA

I got this lens primarily to do head shots for musicians and actors and I couldn't be happier with the results I've gotten. Tack sharp detail, great depth of field for bokeh, and very vivid colors especially in the f/2 range. Light weight and very quiet auto focus round out the best qualities of this lens. If you can only afford one prime lens, this is the one to get.

Awesome lens!

By

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

By

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.
