The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens is an FX-format lens that is highly popular with wedding photographers, studio, fashion and portrait photographers. In addition, it’s also a great lens for a Nikon DSLR camera owner who’s keen to expand their equipment beyond their kit lens option.

Due to its light weight, compact design and affordable price tag, the NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G is considered an essential lens for many Nikon DSLR camera owners. Offering a standard 50mm focal length, ideal for everyday shooting and portraiture, this is one of the best Nikon DSLR lenses available. Featuring a constant f/1.8 aperture enables photographers to have uncompromising control over their shutter speed and depth of field. At its maximum f/1.8 aperture, this lens will produce extreme shallow depth of field effects and create beautiful, silky background blurring. It also allows photographers to use higher shutter speeds under low-light conditions when taking pictures or video recording. The 7-blade aperture diaphragm of this lens is what helps to deliver attractive out-of-focus highlights, also known as bokeh.

The NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G, also known as a “nifty fifty”, is ideal for portrait photography, events photography and street photography. This version of 50mm lens doesn’t offer the widest aperture in the 50mm NIKKOR lens range, but it offers a good balance between price, low-light performance, sharpness and shallow depth of field. This 50mm also benefits from Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor technology, quietly and quickly actuating to deliver consistently sharp results.

When paired with a full-frame Nikon DSLR camera, the reach of this 50mm lens can be extended to 75mm when the camera is switched to DX-format mode. This same increase in reach occurs when this lens is used on a DX-format camera such as the Nikon D500.
