Expert Review

7 November 2013
  • Conclusion: For years, the popular and affordable 50mm/f1.8 was only available as an AF-D lens that cannot auto focus on today’s consumer DSLRs such as the earlier D40 to the current D3100 and D5100. This new AF-S version is a very welcome addition.

Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G Review

What Digital Camera
1 May 2012
  • Summary: Overall, 50mm primes are rather unglamorous lenses that can look out-dated in a world where zooms are truly dominant. In fact they are often high performers despite their low prices and are therefore worthy of very serious consideration. There is little to fault in Nikon’s latest G-series 50mm lens.
  • Pros: Fantastic full-frame performance
  • Cons: Some chromatic aberration on DX-format sensor

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

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.

AF-S 50 mm f/1.8G

5 July 2011
  • 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...
  • 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.

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

27 January 2009
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.8 G is a very solid performer that delivers very good to excellent sharpness across most of the FX frame. Typical for a fast prime there is some vignetting wide open as well as bokeh fringing. CAs and distortion are moderate.
