Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D

Nikon have added another lens to their range, the AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D.

With the modification of other AF Nikkor lenses from S-type to D-type, the entire AF Nikkor lineup is now comprised of D-type and G-type lenses.

This D-type Nikkor lens, like all other Nikkor D- and G-type lenses, relays subject-to-camera distance information to AF Nikon camera bodies. This then makes possible advances like 3D Matrix Metering and 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash.

The lens delivers superior optical performance thanks to the incorporation of high-grade Nikon Super Integrated Coating.

AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Major Features

  • D-type 50mm normal lens; 75mm equivalent with D1-series and D100 digital SLR
  • High-grade Nikon Super Integrated Coating offers superior color reproduction and minimizes ghost and flare
  • Lightweight and compact that fits nicely in users hands
  • New cosmetic design
