Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Lens

  • 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.

Nikon 50mm 1.8D Prime Lens

random process
28 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I picked up a copy of the ubiquitous Nikon 50mm F/1.8 prime lens over the weekend and tried my hand at forced manual focusing on the D40 body. For the first hour or so, I had a hell of a time, trying to gauge the focus through the viewfinder without any additional help. Seeing as focus was extremely inconsistent, I did some sleuthing to see if there were any tricks to the trade.

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

photozone.de
22 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor is indeed a typical fast normal prime: small and light-weight, affordable and, yes, bitingly sharp, at least stopped down. Wide open, the lens lacks both contrast and sharpness, especially towards the borders and corners.

AF 50 mm f/1.8D

LensTip.com
20 January 2010
  • 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 Ai-S 50mm f/1.8 - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor Ai-S 50mm f/1.8 performed basically identical to the current AF D model so it's your choice whether you prefer AF and a plastic construction or smooth manual focusing in a solid package. 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.

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.

Обзор Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm F1.8D. Самый дешевый автофокусный полтинник для полного кадра и портретник для кропа

kaddr.com
12 December 2013
  • Summary: Этот «полтинник» – один их самых интересных с точки зрения первого фикса или замены китовому объективу. Он маленький, легкий, качественно собран. И пусть у него не выдающаяся картинка, пускай он не лишен недостатков, но за свою цену – это неплохой вариант для каждого, кто начинает свой творческий путь в мире фотографии.

  • 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.

Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED

Akam.no
16 January 2006
  • Excerpt: Nå har jeg brukt 17-55mm-en nesten hver eneste dag siden mai, og det er mitt klart mest brukte objektiv. Det har vært brukt til alle mulige forskjellige oppgaver, fra pressefotografering, sports og bryllup til konsertfotografering. I praktisk bruk, i alle mulige situasjoner, er prestasjonene meget overbevisende. Skarphet, kontrast, og i særdeleshet de fargene det gir, gleder jeg meg over hver eneste dag.
