  • Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior colour consistency and reduced flare, while the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G's Aspherical Lens Element (AS) virtually eliminates coma and other types of aberrations, even when shooting at the widest available aperture. Pair that with Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for fast, accurate and quiet autofocus, and you can be sure all of your portraits will be tack sharp.

  • The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G is invaluable for shooting a wide variety of outdoor scenes. With the 50mm f/1.8 you can capture a scene as you perceive it with the naked eye.
