The AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D Lens from Nikon is a supremely lightweight lens that offers an f/1.8 maximum aperture for effective low light shooting and shallow depth of field control. A standard 50mm focal length on FX-format cameras, it provides a 75mm focal length equivalence when used on DX-format Nikon DSLRs. A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements and reduces lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and colour accuracy when working in bright and backlit conditions. Also, a rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality. With a simple and time-tested optical design, it weighs in at just 5.5 oz making it a great lens for travel and everyday use.
