  • Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, good colors and contrast
    Not found yet

    I wasn't sure if I would take the 1.8D of 1.8G but since a few days I purchased the 1.8G because I already have a 50mm f/1.8 with aperture ring (MF) and I was reading good things about the smooth bokeh.

    The same evening I had a party and I used the 1.8G in available light and wide open. I was impressed of the image quality and sharpness of this baby.

    AF is fast, quiet and accurate.

    The build quality feels okay and I think this looks kinda better on my D300s then the smaller 1.8D (I know, this shouldn't be a decision breaker).

    I have the feeling this will be my favorite and most used lens.
