Your DSLR’s best friend

A must-have for standard portraits and everyday use, the AF-S Nikon 50mm f/1.8G is a lens that will absolutely surprise you. The 50mm focal length (75mm equivalent on DX-format cameras) with a fast f/1.8 aperture allows you to capture stunning images with a shallow depth-of-field, letting your subjects stand out from their backgrounds. The AF-S Nikon 50mm f/1.8G may soon become your new favourite lens.

Get astonishing low light results

This lightweight standard lens is a great travel companion because you never know when a beautiful, sunny day will turn cloudy and rainy. With its fast f/1.8 aperture, the AF-S Nikon 50mm f/1.8G will capture even low-light situations with stunning brilliance.

Beautiful Background Blur

Achieve a more natural depth of field. Whether you're shooting portraits, food or nature—indoors or outdoors—the AF-S Nikon 50mm f/1.8G renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings. And its 50mm focal length is perfect for creating a natural perspective in your photographs.

Shoot tack-sharp portraits every time

Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior colour consistency and reduced flare, while the AF-S Nikon 50mm f/1.8G's Aspherical Lens Element (AS) virtually eliminates coma and other types of aberrations, even when shooting at the widest available aperture. Pair that with Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for fast, accurate and quiet autofocus, and you can be sure all of your portraits will be tack sharp.

Push your creativity to the limit

The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G is invaluable for shooting a wide variety of outdoor scenes. With the 50mm f/1.8, you can capture a scene as you perceive it with the naked eye.

Silent Wave Motor

AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “travelling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.

Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.

Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.

Super Integrated Coating

Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in Nikon lenses.

This is Nikon's best value for money lens. When we do weddings it always our main lens on the main camera, it is tack sharp and on a good low light body, it handles brilliantly in dim-lit venues. Incredible for outside portrait shoots as well.
