Nikon 50mm lensPress Release:

Nikon is pleased to announce the introduction of a new wide aperture fixed-focal length NIKKOR lens, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G. The new lens has a fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 respectively for a bright viewfinder experience, beautiful background blur with shallow depth of field. It also incorporates Nikon's ultra-compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ring-type for silent, fast and accurate focusing and enables autofocus in cameras without a built-in motor, such as the Nikon D40 and Nikon D60.

"This new fast prime lens redefines the standard lens concept," said Robert Cristina, Professional Products and NPS Manager at Nikon Europe. He adds: "The fast apertures, silent AF and compact dimensions deliver brilliant image quality with new creative options for Nikon digital photographers."

The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G lens is a fast, fixed focal-length lens with normal picture angle when used with Nikon's FX-format D-SLR cameras. Its newly developed optical system delivers high performance, efficiently correcting sagittal coma flare and chromatic aberration.

The SWM ring type also offers smooth and quiet AF operation. Whilst all lens groups shift during focusing, the front element and filter mount does not rotate and the barrel length does not change, which makes it an ideal lens for close-up photography or when using SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight units. The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G has two focus modes, M/A (manual-priority autofocus) and M (manual focus). With its rounded nine-blade diaphragm, out-of-focus elements appear more natural. When mounted on a DX-format SLR, the picture angle is equivalent to a focal length of approximately 75mm in 35mm format.

Nice wonder if it will be the same price as the other nikon 50mm 1.4
Might try one out and use it in my waterhousing for the surf photography if the price is right Smile
