Outstanding for Travel & Everyday
Every photographer’s or videographer’s kit needs a nifty fifty, and the Nikon 50mm 1.8G lens is an outstanding choice. Compact and lightweight at just 185g, this prime lens makes an ideal travel or everyday creative companion. Its fixed 50mm focal length offers a versatile natural perspective similar to the naked eye’s – ideal for landscapes, portraits, food, and street and documentary-style shots.
Superb Bokeh & Low Light Performance
Whatever the ambient lighting conditions, this Nikon 50mm lens is bound to impress. Its aperture opens as wide as f/1.8, allowing you to take superior indoor and night-time shots – like at a live music gig or candlelit wedding ceremony – without flash. The large aperture also lets you capture swift action at fast, blur-free shutter speeds, and create dramatically shallow depth of field – perfect for blurring backgrounds to make your subjects really stand out.
Superior Image Quality
Enjoy excellent image quality in every shot. Nikon’s Superior Integrated Coating (SIC) gives the Nikon 50mm f/1.8G lens superior light transmission efficiency and colour consistency, as well as reduced flare, for crisp, vibrant images even in backlit conditions. An aspherical lens element (which contributes to the lens’ more compact size) ensures that even at the lens’ widest aperture, coma and other aberrations are virtually eliminated, leaving your images distortion-free.
Silent Wave Motor for Quiet, Responsive AF
Get pin-sharp detail where you need it. Equipped with a Silent Wave Motor (SWM), the Nikon 50mm 1.8G lens delivers super fast, precise and quiet autofocus, so you can sharply capture fleeting moments – like a sudden smile or energetic dance move – without disturbing them or recording unwanted sound in videos. Need to fine-tune your focus? In M/A focusing mode you can simply rotate the focusing ring to seamlessly change from auto to manual focus, without looking away from the viewfinder.
