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...

Nikon 50mm 1.8 AFD lens

 

Amazing quality at this price - find out why this tiny little plastic lens is one of our editor's favourites.

Amazing sharpness in a small compact lens. Fast aperture for low light shooting.

For a pro lens this is slightly plasticky

That\'s why it\'s called the standard lens

 

Great for available light, fast focus & sharp. Don\'t have to use distracting flash for most indoor people shots. It is also a great "walk-about" lens; small and light. Also takes 52mm filters.

Perfectly Suited To My Nikon D700

 

With the new Nikon D3 and D700 FX cameras, this classic 50mm lens is poised to make a big comeback. There are so many photographic possibilities using a small, fast single focal length lens rather than a heavy, slow and expensive zoom. Based on its...

A great prime lens for a D800

 

I bought this lens as a standard prime for my D800. It is pin sharp from edge to centre from f4 through to f11, but still gives acceptable results wide open. I mainly use it for landscape work, but I have used it in low light venues when photographing...
