Description

The AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G is a fast standard prime lens for Nikon full-frame DSLR cameras. The AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G features 7 optical elements in 6 groups, including one aspherical lens element.

Key Features

Ease of Use
Tipping the scales at 190grams and measuring 5.3cms in length (without the lens hood fitted), the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G is quite a compact standard prime lens, especially compared to Nikon's much bigger 58mm f/1.4 lens that we reviewed recently. Coupled to the Nikon Df, as seen in the photos below, the lens is impeccably styled to pleasingly match the retro body.
Auto-focus
The AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G lens features a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) that allows near-silent auto-focusing on all Nikon DSLR cameras. Importantly, this solution allows instant manual override even when the focus mode switch is in the M/A position. Focusing is fully internal, meaning the length of the lens always remains constant, and the front of the lens does not rotate on focus. This is good news for those who use polarisers or ND grads on a regular basis.
Chromatic Aberrations
Chromatic aberrations, typically seen as blue or purple fringes along contrasty edges, are well controlled with this lens - the examples below show the worst-case scenario.
Light Fall-off
With the lens wide open at f/1.8, you can see some light fall-off in the corners and along the frame edges. Stopping down helps, although to completely get rid of this phenomenon, you will need to use an f-stop of f/5.6 or smaller.
Macro
The AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G is not a macro lens. The closest focusing distance is 45cm, and Nikon quotes a maximum magnification of 0.15x for the lens. The following example illustrates how close you can get to the subject, in this case a CompactFlash card.
