NIKON (Nikkor) AF 50mm f/1.8D (Prime Lens)

Nikon 50mm 1.8 D (Prime Lens)

Simply the best $100 you can spend on a lens. This is an extremely popular lens that every serious amateur or pro should have in their bag. This lens will work on full frame cameras like the D700 and D3. However, it will not auto focus on the D40, D60, D5000 because it does not have a built in motor (It's not an AF-S lens. It's works perfectly on the D50, D70, D80, D90, D300, or the new D300s.

If you own a camera like the D40, D60 or D5000 that needs an AF-S lens to auto focus then take a look at the Nikon AF-S 50mm 1.4 lens.

There are over 500 hundred reviews of this lens on the site. A tribute to it's popularity.

This lens is well built, super fast, small, light, ultra sharp and the bokeh is awesome. It's excels in low light and night time photography. However, you should be aware that using this lens at maximum aperture will give you a very shallow DOF (depth of field) when shooting subjects close to the camera.

It's 50mm focal length makes it a good portrait lens for DX cameras like the D70, D90 and D300. If you are looking for a great portrait prime lens for a full frame camera like the D700 or D3 look at the Nikon AF 85mm F1.8D

Check the price and buy it here at B&H photo has been is business since 1973. They have stayed in business because they treat their customers with respect.
