Expert Review

DP Review
30 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Anyone reading this review shortly after that of the Canon EF 50mm F.4 USM will surely be experiencing an uncanny sense of deja vu; the two lenses' characteristics and performance are remarkably similar, as we might expect from designs of similar vintage and optical formula from two of the leading camera manufacturers.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality when stopped down, Essentially no lateral chromatic aberration
  • Cons: Distinctly soft at wider apertures, Bokeh chromatic aberration, most visible at wide apertures, Broad blue-coloured halation at wide apertures, Vignetting at wide apertures on full frame (essentially disappears by F2.8)

Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4 D (FX) - Review / Test Report

9 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Normal primes have a long standing reputation of high quality for an affordable price and the Nikkor AF-D 50 makes no exception to this rule. The lens is able to deliver very sharp images, at least slightly stopped down.

Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4 D - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Similar to its cousin (AF 50mm f/1.8 D) the Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4 D is a very good performer. At f/1.4 the contrast is a little on the low side and the borders may be a little soft but from f/2.8 & up the performance is really superb. Distortions are detectable in the lab but not really significant enough to be relevant in the real life. CAs are very low and vignetting is a non-issue except at f/1.4 (on APS-C DSLRs).
