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...

Agreed - as a short tele/portrait lens on a DX body, this shines

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

Superb Replacement of the KIT lens

 

KIT lenses do not do the cameras that they come with justice. This is the equivalent of 75mm on a crop sensor if you aren't using a full frame camera. Fantastic for indoor shots/portraits of any kind.

Fast auto focusing ; Excellent Bokeh ; Fantastic Image Quality, much better than KIT lens ; Great low light performance coupled with current generation Nikon cameras

Twice the price of the equivalent Canon model. But I chose a Nikon camera for a reason, so that's ok

Can't beat the value

 

Fantastically crisp photos with pro looking depth of field (bokeh). Fast in low light with aperture of 1.8f, but slow to auto focus. I often miss the shot waiting for it to focus in low light. This has forced me to learn how to quickly manually focus,...

Fast, crisp, and clear photos. Great depth of field at 1.8f.

Slow to focus in mid to low light.

Great Lens

 

Great "starter" lens, not to expensive and helps you understand the basics.

For people who are buying this lens and compairing pricing, please make sure you compair the 50MM w/AF-S this lens is an update to 50MM w/no AF-S. This is a great all around prime lens, and before I read a review saying "It doesnt zoom" Prime/fixed...

Nothing.
