This updated classic with a fast maximum aperture is ideal for everyday shooting, perfect in low lighting situations and great for producing images with beautiful background blur (Bokeh). The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G includes Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) for fast and precise autofocus, M/A Focus Mode Switch for seamless changes between manual and autofocus operation and an aspherical lens element for outstanding optical performance with high contrast.

  • newegg Brilliance in Any Light This lightweight standard lens is a great travel companion because you never know when a beautiful, sunny day will turn cloudy and rainy. With its fast f/1.8 aperture, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G will capture even low-light situations with stunning brilliance.
  • newegg Beautiful Background Blur Whether you're shooting portraits, food or nature—indoors or outdoors—the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings. And its 50mm focal length is perfect for creating natural perspective in your photographs.
  • newegg Capture Every Detail Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare, while the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G's Aspherical Lens Element (AS) virtually eliminates coma and other types of aberrations, even when shooting at the widest available aperture. Pair that with Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for fast, accurate and quiet autofocus, and you can be sure all of your portraits will be tack sharp.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb Replacement of the KIT lens

Pros: Fast auto focusing

Excellent Bokeh

Fantastic Image Quality, much better than KIT lens

Great low light performance coupled with current generation Nikon cameras.

Cons: Twice the price of the equivalent Canon model. But I chose a Nikon camera for a reason, so that's ok.

Other Thoughts: KIT lenses do not do the cameras that they come with justice.

This is the equivalent of 75mm on a crop sensor if you aren't using a full frame camera. Fantastic for indoor shots/portraits of any kind.

4 out of 5 eggsCan't beat the value

Pros: Fast, crisp, and clear photos. Great depth of field at 1.8f.

Cons: Slow to focus in mid to low light.

Other Thoughts: Fantastically crisp photos with pro looking depth of field (bokeh). Fast in low light with aperture of 1.8f, but slow to auto focus. I often miss the shot waiting for it to focus in low light. This has forced me to learn how to quickly manually focus, which isn't such a bad thing.

I take a lot of portraits of 1-2 people and this "nifty fifty" works great, but when taking group shots, 50mm is too much power and I am forced to back away a great deal. If I had to do it over, I would purchase the Nikkor 35mm 1.8f for about the same price.

Overall, at $200+/-, you can't beat the value!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Lens

Pros: For people who are buying this lens and compairing pricing, please make sure you compair the 50MM w/AF-S this lens is an update to 50MM w/no AF-S.
This is a great all around prime lens, and before I read a review saying "It doesnt zoom" Prime/fixed lens DONT!
This is a great lens for portrait or landscape shots, either way well worth the cash.

Cons: Nothing.

Other Thoughts: Great "starter" lens, not to expensive and helps you understand the basics.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Lens

Pros: Great Bokeh
Awesome Portrait Lens
Works Great w/ DX Camera
Works as all round Lens
Very Good at Low Light

Cons: Nothing so far...

Other Thoughts: The average price of this lens is $219.99, I would've bought it from newegg but it's a little bit overpriced for $259?. I love shopping here at newegg but sometimes I just don't understand their pricing. Anyway I just wanted to share my experience about the lens. Great Lens, No Regrets

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Lense, but overpriced.

Pros: This is supposed to be one of the best auto-focus 50mm's.

Cons: This is virtually cheaper EVERYWHERE else (by an average of 40-50$) This is very unlike NewEgg.

Other Thoughts: I love NewEgg (and my order history proves it) but they are priced way out of market for anyone that even googles this lense. I'd buy it here in an instant if they brought it down to at least 220 (the average) shipped. I haven't bought it yet, but will probably in the next couple weeks.
