Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G Lens Review

 

The AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4 G is Nikon's latest take on the classic 'standard lens' concept, and was introduced in September 2008. It's a replacement for the older AF-Nikkor 50mm F1.4D which we reviewed last year, with revised optics to better meet the...

Extremely even image quality across the frame, even on FX ; Improved image quality over 50mm F1.4D at large apertures ; Exceptional image quality when stopped down ; Essentially no lateral chromatic aberration ; Near-silent AF-S focus with full-time...

Slightly soft at large apertures ; Somewhat susceptible to flare ; Longitudinal (bokeh) chromatic aberration, most visible at large apertures ; Vignetting at large apertures on full frame (essentially disappears by F2.8) ; Slower autofocus than the...

The AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G was, at its introduction, hailed by Nikon as 'redefining the standard lens concept'. It turns out that in many ways that was no idle boast - in almost all respects the lens is clearly improved over its predecessor, the...

Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D

 

The AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D is Nikon's current version of their fast 'standard' prime lens, and while this specific model was introduced in 1995, the basic optical design dates back to the manual focus 50mm 1:1.4 AI of 1977. It features a traditional...

Excellent image quality when stopped down ; Essentially no lateral chromatic aberration

Distinctly soft at wider apertures ; Bokeh chromatic aberration, most visible at wide apertures ; Broad blue-coloured halation at wide apertures ; Vignetting at wide apertures on full frame (essentially disappears by F2.8)

Anyone reading this review shortly after that of the Canon EF 50mm F.4 USM will surely be experiencing an uncanny sense of deja vu; the two lenses' characteristics and performance are remarkably similar, as we might expect from designs of similar...

Lens Test: Nikon 50mm F/1.8 ED Nikkor

 

This fulL-FRAME normal lens ($220, street) is one of the least expensive entrées to the world of high-speed Nikkor glass. As with all Nikon G lenses, its diaphragm settings are handled electronically by the camera; there's no aperture ring. On Nikon DX...

Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens Review

 

The Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor prime lens is a classic lens. It is a redesign of a time-tested classic that has for years proven its ability to deliver excellent design and functionality. For

Lens Test: Nikon 50mm f/1.4G Nikkor AF-S

 

The newest version of Nikon's storied 50mm f/1.4 boasts a redesigned optical formula for more effective flare prevention. A 75mm equivalent on Nikon smaller-sensor DX bodies, this $500 (street) full-framer also has a circular-bladed aperture for...

Nikon 50mm f/1.4 D AF Review Round-Up

 

Similar to its cousin (AF 50mm f/1.8 D) the Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4 D is a very good performer. At f/1.4 the contrast is a little on the low side and the borders may be a little soft but from f/2.8 & up the performance is really superb. Distortions are...

This 50mm prime lens is a great choice for Nikon users

Consistently good definition ; Well-made with good control

Expert review by:

Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G

 

This new prime lens has a very affordable price. The WDC review of the Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G discovers that its performance is impressive too

Fantastic full-frame performance

Some chromatic aberration on DX-format sensor

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...
