Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8G lens

Posted on

Nikon Canada has announced the AF-S Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8G – a prime lens which focuses as close as 1.48 feet and which incorporates an ultra-compact Silent Wave Motor for fast, quiet AF operation.

Optimized for Nikon FX-format cameras, it also is an option for Nikon DX-format cameras.

The new consists of seven elements in six groups, with one aspherical lens element to reduce instances of coma and aberration, even when shooting wide open. A rounded diaphragm opening combined with the seven-blade aperture contributes to a substantially more circular bokeh for a more natural appearance of out-of-focus background elements. Instances of lens flare and chromatic aberration are suppressed using Nikon’s Super Integrated Coatings, which also help ensure vividly accurate colour balance.

The AF-S Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8G lens is scheduled to be available in late June at a suggested retail price of $249.95.
