Rate & Review


With its updated classic exterior design and feel, outstanding NIKKOR optics and advanced Nikon lens technologies, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition Lens is the perfect match for the Nikon Df and anyone who appreciates the feel of a classic lens. Its fast f/1.8 maximum aperture renders beautifully blurred backgrounds and maximizes low-light performance, and its 50mm normal perspective is ideal for everyday shooting. And despite its classic styling, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition is a fully modern NIKKOR lens with Nikon's advanced technologies, like Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, nearly silent autofocusing with seamless manual override. Well suited for travel and everyday applications, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition will be your go-to lens for great shots.

Brilliance in Any Light
The lightweight, compact AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition is a great travel companion, especially when you need to freeze fast action or if a bright sunny day turns overcast. Its fast f/1.8 maximum aperture makes framing and focusing easier, and allows for high shutter speeds and full exposures under dim lighting conditions.

Beautiful Background Blur
When shooting wide open at f/1.8, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition renders beautifully blurred backgrounds (bokeh). Make a tack-sharp foreground subject stand out against a softly blurred background, a capability especially well suited for portraits. The lens' 50mm focal length (75mm on DX-format cameras) approximates the angle of view of our eyes, perfect for creating natural perspective in your photographs.

Outstanding Performance
The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition is a remarkable blend of classic exterior styling and modern optics and lens technologies. Its focus ring features the easy to grip knurling/hatching from classic manual focus lenses, while its autofocus system uses Nikon's innovative Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, near silent precision focusing. SWM also allows for seamless manual focus override when fine adjustments are desired. The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition will give you years of brilliant performances.

AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.

Super Integrated Coating
Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.

Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
