    Brilliance In Any Light – Get astonishing low light results

    This lightweight standard lens is a great travel companion because you never know when a beautiful, sunny day will turn cloudy and rainy. With its fast f/1.8 aperture, the AF–S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G will capture even low–light situations with stunning brilliance.

    Beautiful Background Blur – Achieve more natural depth of field

    Whether you're shooting portraits, food or nature (indoors or outdoors) the AF–S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings. And its 50mm focal length is perfect for creating natural perspective in your photographs.

    Fast f/1.8, compact FX–format prime (fixed focal length) lens

    Optimized for FX–format D–SLR cameras but is equally at home on any Nikon DX–format D–SLR. Quiet Autofocus. A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon's Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations, rather than a gear system – to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.

    Quick Switching from AF to MF

    When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring–M/A mode allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag.

    Effective Aberration Correction

    Since the 1960s, aspherical lenses have been an important part of the NIKKOR lens family. Virtually eliminating coma and other types of aberration, every new addition to the lineup provides a new level of contrast, resolution and compact design.

    Reduce Lens Flare and Ghosting

    Nikon's Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced lens flare.
