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 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.

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.

Nikon M/A Mode technology icon
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 lineup provides a new level of contrast, resolution and compact design.

The Most Bang For Your Buck! I am an amateur photographer that is broadening my skill set. Someone suggested to me to either try the AF-S 35mm or the 50mm. I went with the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G and I am so glad that I did. The way that this lens performs in low light situations is perfection. The bokeh it produces is beautiful. I have tested it on my dog and on people and the way I can easily transition on the manual settings is unmatchable for any of the other lenses I have. I can easily change the Aperture and Shutter Speed in a jiffy and the quality is consistent. I highly recommend this lens for anyone because it's so fairly priced, you cannot pass it up. June 30, 2014
Great lens I bought this lens refurbished a few months ago. I have loved the pictures it helps me create. Saved a few bucks and so far it has operated flawlessly.fast in low light completely happy with it!!!! June 17, 2014
Best Nikon Deal Available In all honestly, this is by far the best value you can find for a Nikon lens. It works with FX sensors so it can provide great portraits along the entire line of DSLRs. The quality of photos with this lens is incredible. A prime lens can cause you to focus with your feet more than some like, but I never leave the house without the lens in my camera bag. May 31, 2014
50mm 1.8G Can't enjoy enough ! NIKON -thank you very much for 35,50 and 85mm 1.8G. Finally I bought 50mm. Now I am done with lenses for a long time because I don't think that there is anything better than these three. Combination of quality, size, weight and price-nothing is better. Of course you can get 24-70 or 70-200. But it will cost you thousands, they are huge and heavy. I can't imagine being on vacation in Europe and walking around with 70-200 2.8. I would worry-lens cost as much as vacation. Two years ago I was overseas with D70 and 35mm 1.8 and it was great, never miss another lens. Now I am using D5100 and my pictures are even better. The lens balances great on D5100, you can walk all day like that and always ready for the shot. The beauty of these 3 lenses (35,50,85) is that they are compact and light and inexpensive. Also very fast. By the way - they are very sharp even wide open at 1.8(in the center), at 2.8 - sharp all over the frame, yet shallow DOF, excellent. Nikon-great job, I am very happy with the purchase. April 25, 2014
Just great! I have both this lens and the older 50mm 1.8D. I own both versions because I own two D7000's that I use for video and photography. This review will be like a comparison between the two. I'm basically just stating my personal opinions and observations. This G lens is better suited for photography. It produces slightly smoother bokeh but much nicer and rounder bokeh balls when compared to the older D version. Wide open both lenses perform well but this G version produces sharper images at f1.8~2. However once you stop down to say 2.8 or smaller then you'd be hard pressed to tell the differences. As for subject tracking the newer G lenses just stick to your subjects like glue. The SWM motors just seem to track moving subjects quicker and with better precision. The old D version is no slouch either, but once you use an AF-S G lens to track someone running or people moving around in a play then you'll really start to appreciate Nikon's SWM motor. Of course this is also assuming that you know how to properly setup your cameras AF system. I like to use 9 or 21 points in AF-C mode on my D7000. I find those modes to be perfect for moving or unpredictable subjects. As for video well Nikon has breathed new life into their older AF-D lenses. The D lenses have an aperture control ring which can be enabled and used on bodies like the D7000 and higher ( f6 in the custom menu). With the aperture ring enabled you can now change your aperture settings without leaving live view. You can also change your aperture while recording video. The aperture control ring alone is why I also bough the older D version. Overall if you don't shoot video and don't mind spending the extra money on this new G lens then by all means go for it. Also if you own a D3k or D5k series then this lens is your only option. As those bodies don't have built in AF motors. However if you do own a D7000 or higher end body then consider the older AF-D lens. Its very compact and its performance is amazing. Both lenses are great and you really can't go wrong with either one. April 19, 2014

Answer: 
The f/1.4 is 2/3s stop faster than the f/1.8, which isn't quite as important with a digital as it was with film. (You can kick up your ISO if absolutely necessary). Wide open, the f/1.4 does have slightly less depth of field. Some report that the f/1.4 is slightly sharper.

Answer: 
It means it is not a zoom lens, it shoots a a fixed focal length of 50mm. The only way to change the size of the subject is to move closer or furthur away. Any lens that only has one distance in mm listed example 50mm is fixed focal length. If lets say 18mm-55mm is listed, that is a zoom lens. Has nothing to do with them "fixing a lens"

I just bought the 50mm 1.8g a couple of days ago. After clicking several shots, I realized that most of the photos come out a little blurry at fstop 1.8, even in good lighting conditions and in the aperture priority mode. I do not have the most stable hands, but am I doing something wrong here?

I am an amateur photographer and use the D5100. Please advise.

Answer: 
No, because you don't want to be too close to the subject. If you are the facal features pancake and the nose and ears are too predominant. I use a 105mm for actual portraits but use a 50mm indoors for party pictures and such.

Answer: 
Neither is any better than the other for portraits, its more down to how close you want / need to be. Any lens can be used for portraits ive even took some with a 200-400, again its just down to personal preference.

Answer: 
Yes, the lens has a built in focus motor. The-S designation means it has a silent wave motor to focus the lens.

I'd like this question should be answered by Nikon staff, if possible.
I had on the past 35mm camera, with film. In that time everything was analogic.
Now we are on the digital time and everything changed. So, as I am considering to buy a new camera and lens, should I buy a 35mm f/1.8 prime lens instead 50mm f/1.8, to have the same result?
I mean, the DX format is different, so I should have a 35mm multiplied by 1,5 = 52,5mm.

Answer: 
If you are considering buying a DX format Digital SLR camera, the 35mm f/1.8 lens would be more suitable for the camera. If you are considering buying an FX format Digital SLR camera (35mm Film Equivalent), the 50mm f/1.8 lens would be more suitable for the camera.

If your old film camera is a Nikon camera that uses the F1 mount, Your old lenses can also be use in today Digital SLR camera with some restrictions.
