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.

Great Glass This 50mm 1.8 is a great piece of glass. This on a DX body acts as about a 75mm lens. Because of this, it is a very good and affordable portrait lens for DX users. This was the first lens I bought with my D5200, and I have gotten very good and very sharp results. At times, the image can look a little soft when at 1.8 (or at least close to 1.8). I will admit that sometimes this is my fault, but there are other times I would put the blame on the lens. I do not experience a lot (or any) distortion for the most part, and very minor chromatic aberration, so there is not a lot of fixing you need to do in Lightroom. I have probably had the best results around f/2.8 and on people, animals, and plants. It can sometimes not yield the best results for landscapes because it might not be wide enough, but if the conditions are right, you're bound to get a sharp shot because this glass is very good. I would just like to note that there is no VR and there is a M/A setting which lets you use the focus ring while also being able to autofocus (comes in handy for video). All in all, it is a good piece of glass, just remember you might have to take a few steps back when taking a shot and to shoot around f/2.2-2.8 for a sharp and good bokeh shot. July 24, 2014
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

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.

My understanding is the 85mm is the perfect focal length to take portrait shots using a full-frame camera.

If I put this lens on a DX body, I believe it will behave like a 75mm lens. Is this correct?

Would this be suitable?

If I already own 30/1.4, should I get 50/1.8? My 30mm/1.4 is often not very sharp and I'm a little disappointed in it... I have nikon d3100. Thanks!

Answer: 
AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G is a fixed focal length of 50mm and a maximum aperture of 1.8. This updated classic with a fast maximum aperture is ideal for everyday shooting.

I have the 50mm f/1.8g lens on a Nikon D3200 and I tried to use it in manual mode a few weeks ago and I noticed that the camera still tries to focus even when the switch is set to M. Can someone assist me in what I could be doing wrong or is the switch defective?

I just received my 35mm and I'm not as blown away as I thought I would be. Photography is my hobby and I pretty much take picture of my kiddies. I would like to start my own small photography business. I am thinking of returning my 35mm for the 50 mm. Any thoughts?

Answer: 
You will be limiting you field of view. A 50mm on a DX format camera will give you a 75mm equivalent field of view. Suppose you want a group shot of children at a party? If you intend on making photography a business why not invest in a AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED or if you intend to step up to FX a AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED
