Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G lens review

ePHOTOzine
3 January 2011
  • Summary: Having owned the older AF-D version for some time, I can say this update is a welcome one. The build and silent focusing are welcome refinements, even if the focusing speed does seem a little slow. Performance throughout the aperture range is very good to outstanding, which is what you would expect from a lens of this type, and as a result this lens should not disappoint even the most discerning photographers.
  • Pros: Excellent optical quality, Good build quality, Light weight, Good value
  • Cons: Focusing speed lower than previous version, 58mm filter size not common for Nikon prime lenses.
