Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50 mm f/1.8G

5 July 2011

6. Distortion

The Nikkor AF 1.8/50D dealt with the distortion in a very good way. The more expensive and faster Nikkor AF-S 50 mm f/1.4G had much more problems. The new Nikkor 1.8/50G, as you see in the chart below, lands right in the middle with its results. It is a step backward compared to its predecessor. Fortunately not a very big step, so the distortion remains not bothersome.
