  • Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    fast, sharp, light, cheap
    no aperture ring, plastic, DOF scale not helpful, 58 mm filter size

    This is an excellent standard fast lens. Comes with a hood and pouch. Autofocus is fast and quiet on my D200. Manual overrride is handy. Manual focusing is smooth. Image contrast and color is very good wide open. Sharpness is best at 5.6. Bokeh is much better compared to my old 50/2 Ai. Built quality is OK. Time will tell how durable it is. Has a 5 year warranty. If you don't need 1.4 you get this lens half price of the 50/1.4G. Nice walk around lens.
