  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.

  • Conclusion: The Nikkor 1.8/50 isn’t a faultless instrument because it would be impossible for a 120 $ device to be so. For that sum of money we still get quite a lot so it would hard to complain especially that in the most important category, concerning the resolution, the Nikkor definitely shows its true caliber. Contrary to popular opinion its build quality can’t be seriously criticized either.
  • Cons: too low image quality near the maximum aperture,, distinct coma,, bothersome astigmatism near the maximum relative aperture,, significant vignetting,, autofocus could have been more accurate,, we expected better work against bright light in the case of such a simple construction.

Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8 D - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
23 August 2008
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8 D is a low profile lens with less sex-appeal than the big glass but it is an interesting lens nonetheless. At wide-open aperture it is a little soft at the image borders and the contrast level is a little on the low side. However, at medium aperture settings the resolution figures are exceptionally high and surely a benchmark to beat. Distortions are negligible and vignetting is very well controlled.

  • Summary: Nikkor 1.8/50 nie jest pozbawiony wad, bo trudno tego oczekiwać od instrumentu kosztującego 500 zł. Za kwotę tą dostajemy jednak na tyle dużo, że trudno nam na cokolwiek narzekać, tym bardziej, że w najistotniejszej kategorii związanej z rozdzielczością Nikkor zdecydowanie pokazuje swoje ostre pazury. Wbrew obiegowej opinii, trudno mieć poważne zastrzeżenia do jakości jego wykonania.
  • Pros: bardzo dobry stosunek jakości do ceny,, świetna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru., mało uciążliwa aberracja chromatyczna,, śladowa dystorsja,, cichy i dość szybki autofokus,, wysoka transmisja.
  • Cons: jakość obrazu w okolicach maksymalnego otworu jest zbyt słaba,, wyraźna koma,, astygmatyzm uciążliwy w okolicach maksymalnego otworu względnego,, wyraźne winietowanie,, autofokus mógłby być celniejszy,, przy tak prostej konstrukcji oczekiwaliśmy lepszej pracy pod światło.

  • Summary: Den overordnede konklusjonen er at AF-S Nikkor 17-55/2,8G er akkurat så god som jeg hadde lest at den skulle være. De 12 000 kronene er mye penger for et objektiv, men man får altså en hel del kvalitet for pengene. Konklusjonen på skarphetstesten er: Å sammenlikne to så skarpttegnende objektiver, gir naturligvis ikke den store forskjellen i den umiddelbare sammenlikningen.
