Extraordinary colour and clarity


Optimised for our high-resolution DSLRs, this lens features a host of innovations that enhance your photographic experience. Its 50mm focal length offers a field of view similar to the human eye, creating a natural perspective in your photographs, superior sharpness and smoother background defocusing. It is particularly effective when photographing half-body portraitures. The Aspherical lens element corrects distortion caused by lens aberrations, offering stunning sharpness and quality bokeh. Our exclusive Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency for rich colours and reduced flares.


Wide aperture for breathtaking bokeh and night shots


The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G offers unsurpassed performance in sun-drenched environments, as well as in low-light situations. Its wide f/1.8 maximum aperture not only produces images with superb background defocusing and a magnificent sense of depth. The wide aperture also allows the use of faster shutter speeds and lower ISO settings, resulting in superior performance when shooting without a tripod or in low-light situations.


Unparalleled autofocus technology


To complement the advanced optics, this lens features our Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology works seamlessly with your DSLR for quick, quiet and continuous autofocusing for crisp images. The lens also has a handy M/A mode for seamless switching to manual focus, giving you total creative control.
