Nikon Nikkor AF 50 mm f/1.8D

1. Introduction

Originally posted 2007-02-23 on Optyczne.pl

What is the cheapest way of taking really sharp pictures and making the best of our reflex camera both in the sense of creativity and the play with the depth of field? The answer is simple – you should buy a 1.8/50 class lens which can be found on such companies’ offer as Canon, Nikon or Sony.

They are among the cheapest instruments on the market and, at the same time, they give good quality pictures many more expensive zoom lenses can only dream about. Low price results partially from a simple optical construction but mainly from build quality, usually much lower than in the case of even more classic 1.4/50 models.

In the case of Sony the 1.8/50 model is a lens designed to work on a small APS-C/DX sensor. In the case of Canon and Nikon we deal with full frame devices. We decided to bring our Nikkor AF 50 mm f/1.8D test up to date, including its full frame performance. Let’s see how it will fare there.

Information about our review method can be read in our article “How do we test lenses?"
