One thought on “Nikon Releases AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G

  1. As basic as this lens is, I am pretty excited for it. I just put in an order for one.

    I actually preferred the 50mm 1.8 AF-D over the 50mm 1.4 AF-D and even the AF-S, due to its non-existent distortion and how it always nailed focus. Even shooting ISO 50 film, 1.8 is usually plenty fast enough. Maybe I had a bad sample of both lenses, but the 1.8 has always been a favorite, now I can’t wait to use it in AF-S trim.

    Thanks for posting the info.
