Nikon's AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G Lens is an attractive alternative to the classic
50mm f/1.4 "normal" lens for everyday shooting with an FX or 35mm
camera. The 50mm f/1.8 is nearly as "fast" as the f/1.4 (just 2/3
stops difference), and provides reduced lens flare and ghosting (plus superior
color consistency) through the use of Nikon's Super Integrated Coating.
Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of
Nikon's Silent Wave
Motor gives you smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation, and the M/A mode
lets you quickly and easily override the autofocus system for fine manual
focusing with almost no time lag. This lens is also compatible with DX cameras.
When used with a DX camera, the angle of view would be equivalent to 75mm.
