Nikon's NEW AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens

The classic 50mm Normal/Standard lens, delivering a picture angle approximating normal vision when used with Nikon FX-format digital SLR cameras, has been reborn.

The classic 50mm Normal/Standard lens, delivering a picture angle approximating normal vision when used with Nikon FX-format digital SLR cameras, has been reborn. Now featuring AF-S focusing and even more refined optical performance, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G teams perfectly with the low noise, high ISO sensitivity performance of Nikon D-SLRs. Thanks to a built-in Silent Wave Motor (SWM), autofocusing is quiet and fast. A newly developed optical formula effectively corrects sagittal coma flare and coma aberration, delivering astonishing image quality. When used on a Nikon DX-format digital SLR camera, the new Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G provides an ideal portrait picture angle, approximating that of a 75mm lens when mounted on an FX-format D-SLR.

Steadily increasing numbers of Nikon digital SLR photographers are learning about the benefits of compact, lightweight and fast-aperture prime lenses that can expand their photographic vision—and this new AF-S NIKKOR lens is sure to excite your customers.
