Description

The Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4G is a standard lens that's suitable for single-lens reflex cameras with a full frame or APS-C sensor. You can use the lens for portrait, nature, and product photography. Thanks to the large maximum aperture of f/1.4, you can take pictures with a bokeh effect. With the silent focusing motor and the internal focus, you'll prevent startling your subject with the sound or movement of the lens. As a result, birds and butterflies won't fly off too soon when you're taking a picture. The lens features a lens coating, reducing lens flare and enhancing the color and contrast.

take professional photos for an amateur price

  • very good value for money
  • autofocus with manual overruling of focus using focus ring
  • no VR option

I already had a Nikon D60 with kit lens "18-55mm VR". I bought the "Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4G" lens because it has a wider aperture. This results in a faster shutter speed and better results in poor lighting conditions. This lens is ideal for portrait photography and photos with a shallow depth of field where the background is deliberately out of focus.

Class objective

Highly recommended this lens. the 50mm 1.4G is easy to handle. Autofocus, but can always be overruled by hand so that you always remain in control. Even in moderate lighting conditions, you can still control your depth of field. Portrait photography is excellent with it. I am very satisfied with it!!

Bright Nikon at its best

  • Bright
  • Relatively cheap
  • Unusual angle of view (for DX camera)

The Nikon AF-S 50mm is a lens with top qualities. She may have a rather unusual angle of view for a DX-format camera, but she's top notch when it comes to performance! I use the lens in combination with the Nikon D90 body. I bought the lens mainly for sports purposes: handball in a hall. If you can stand next to the field, this is already a good entry-level lens. The only lens I would want in combination is the 85mm 1.8 (the 1.4 costs about three times as much). The fact that this is a fixed focal length lens naturally means that you can't zoom and that takes some getting used to, but once you've found your place near the playing field, you can work with it enough to get top photos. Add to this the fast and correct delivery of digicamshop and you know that you are just right.

masterly objective

I am very happy with my nikkor 50mm 1.4 lens. It is easy to handle and even in very limited lighting conditions you can still adjust the depth of field to some extent. That's great if you like portrait photography. Incidentally, the lens corresponds to about 75 mm with analog.

nice brightness

Lens is good for evening photos with artificial light inside without flash. Nice brightness and good sharpness also in the foreground with objects in the background.

beautiful lens

  • Very sharp photos
  • Indoor - Landscape - Buildings (inside and outside) - Portraits... it all produces beautiful results
  • No

Worked so far with the kit lens (18-200) and really only liked the result when there was a lot of light and never really sharp, but I knew a lot I was a beginner. In the meantime I have bought a micro lens (90mm) for insects and that also makes nice portraits, but more than the head was often not possible if you don't have too much space. And seeing all the pimples isn't so nice either ;-). So was looking for a very good price/quality lens for indoor portraits and after some searching on forums etc... decided to buy this lens because of the good reviews. To my delight, I now have a lens with which I can make beautiful portraits, photograph buildings, even landscapes are beautiful and natural for all interior work with poor/low light. What strikes me is that everything is sharper than with my kit lens, unbelievable. I probably won't be using my 18-200 anymore when I go on vacation/hiking. The Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4G finally gives me photos that I like. Forget the kit lens and buy this one, you will definitely be satisfied. Oh yes I have a Nikon D90. I also recommend getting a polarizing filter. Delivery was again tip-top within 24h.

Love at the first click

Attention: After 3 clicks I was completely sold for this lens! I bought this lens mainly with a view to taking photos in relatively dark environments, but the depth of field is to die for. This lens gives me complete control over every aspect of my photo... lovely! The autofocus is not lightning fast, but it is very quiet. As always coolblue's service is perfectly fine... but that's just us...

Comparison

  • Very bright
  • Price

What strikes me is that no one compares this lens with its considerably cheaper brother the f1.8 They don't give each other that much. So my advice is: think carefully first!!

50mm f1.4

  • Brightness
  • nice bokeh
  • Sensitive to chromatic aberration

Well, anyone who knows anything about photography knows that a 50mm lens always comes in handy, it's just a good portrait lens. An advantage of this lens is the f1.4, so you can use just that little bit more light and create more depth of field. Thanks to the 9 diaphragm blades, you also get very nice bokeh. The disadvantage of this lens compared to the 50mm 1.8 is that this lens has no aspherical or ED elements and is more sensitive to chromatic aberrations and fringing (which often becomes clear when shooting at max. open aperture and a lot of light). If you want a portrait lens, go for the f1.8. If you want this lens, which makes them especially for the brightness, take the f1.4.
