    Nikon 50mm f1.8 G AF-S Lens

    The Nikon 50mm f1.8 G AF-S Lens boasts a new optical system that is designed to meet the requirements of today’s D-SLRs. It delivers stunning image quality and offers users an easy and affordable way to appreciate the effects of a fast aperture. The fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 makes the 50mm f1.8 G AF-S Lens an excellent choice for low-light situations or when shallow depth of field is required. You can single out subjects to produce portraits with smooth bokeh or shoot with available light and still capture striking, sharp images. The fast aperture also provides a bright viewfinder image, making it easier to compose your shots. The dedicated Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ensures discreet but accurate autofocus. The Nikon 50mm f1.8 G AF-S Lens is compatible with Nikon FX-format D-SLRs as well as offering a 75mm (equivalent) focal length when used with Nikon DX-format D-SLRs.

    Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager Lenses, Accessories & Software, Nikon Europe says:
    “The new 50mm is an ideal second lens for curious D-SLR enthusiasts wanting to venture beyond the kit lens and explore the creative possibilities that a fast aperture can offer, including effects such as blurred backgrounds in portraiture and low-light shooting.”
    Brilliance In Any Light - Get astonishing low light results.
    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.
    Beautiful Background Blur - Achieve more natural depth of field.
    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.

    Capture Every Detail - Shoot tack-sharp portraits every time.

    Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior colour 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.
    Quiet Autofocus
    A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon's Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
    Quick Switching from AF to MF
    When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring—M/A mode allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag.
    Effective Aberration Correction
    Since the 1960s, aspherical lenses have been an important part of the NIKKOR lens family. Virtually eliminating coma and other types of aberration, every new addition to the line-up provides a new level of contrast, resolution and compact design.
    Reduce Lens Flare and Ghosting
    Nikon's Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior colour consistency and reduced lens flare.
