A supremely lightweight, compact and fast Nikon lens that offers the more economical f1.8 aperture (compared to the 50mm f1.4 D), yet it still retains the great advantages of the D distance technology. It is ideal for travel, portrait, scenery or full-length portraits. It weighs just 155g (0.34 lb), making it great for travel while still offering excellent low light gathering properties. Stops down to f22 for wonderful control over the depth of field. Accepts 52mm filters and the Nikon HR-2 lens hood.

Nikon 50mm f1.8 D AF Lens

  • On a DX-sensor Nikon digital SLR the focal length is equivalent to 75mm (due to a 1.5x 'crop factor').

  • Manual focus only with the Nikon D40, D40x, D60, D3100 or D5100 (full AF on all other Nikon DSLRs).
  • D-type lens uses distance information for i-TTL or D-TTL flash and ambient exposure metering.
  • 52mm filter size for standard threaded filters.
  • Exceptionally lightweight and compact. Ideal for travel photography.
  • Stops down to f22 for extended depth-of-field.
