REVIEW: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G

photodo
2 November 2011
  • Excerpt: This update to Nikon's venerable 50mm f/1.8G has a lot to live up to, as the reputation of the older D version that it is amongst Nikon's sharpest optics will be a hard task to live up to. This new version currently costs around £200, which is around £100 more than the cheapest price the older D version can be picked up for currently.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to great lenses it seems like innovation still happens at a glacial pace. Of course, one could just blame it on an age where new mobile phones are announced every 29 hours, but we digress. Good things come to those who wait and the Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S ($220) is certainly just that.

  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S 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.

  • Excerpt: The launch of the Nikkor AF-S 50 mm f/1.8 G inspired me with deliberations of a kind. Based on what I write in my lens reviews and/or comments on the forum you can easily assume I am not a man obsessed with extreme parameters or enthralled by the otherworldly vividness of f/1.2 or f/1.4 aperture; I rather appreciate optical equipment with good price/quality ratio.
  • Cons: image quality near the maximum aperture could have been at least a bit better,, noticeable coma in the corners of full frame,, distinct vignetting on full frame.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G Lens Review

ePHOTOzine
16 June 2011
  • Excerpt: This update to Nikon's venerable 50mm f/1.8G has a lot to live up to, as the reputation of the older D version that it is amongst Nikon's sharpest optics will be a hard task to live up to. This new version currently costs around £200, which is around £100 more than the cheapest price the older D version can be picked up for currently.
  • Pros: Outstanding optical performance when stopped down, Very good sharpens in the centre at maximum aperture, Excellent build, Light weight, Resistance to flare, Low levels of chromatic aberration
  • Cons: Barrel distortion a little strong for a lens of this type, Hyperfocal marking difficult to use
