Nikon's AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G Lens is
an attractive alternative to the classic 50mm f/1.4 "normal" lens for
everyday shooting with an FX or 35mm camera. The 50mm f/1.8 is nearly as
"fast" as the f/1.4 (just 2/3 stops difference), and provides reduced
lens flare and ghosting (plus superior color consistency) through the
use of Nikon's Super Integrated Coating. Aspherical lens elements
virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration.
Nikon's Silent Wave Motor gives you smooth, silent and precise
autofocus operation, and the M/A mode lets you quickly and easily
override the autofocus system for fine manual focusing with almost no
time lag. This lens is also compatible with DX cameras. When used with a
DX camera, the angle of view would be equivalent to 75mm.
