The Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens produces sharp results with great colors and contrast. Being a prime lens, users need to move a lot when composing a picture. With its 50m focal range, the lens is considered as a normal model and appropriate for portraits.
At f/1.8, users will find that the lens is very fast and they can stop down to f/2.2 to achieve exceptional sharpness. Bokeh with this lens is nearly as good as many more expensive Nikon telephoto lens. Unfortunately, autofocus performance can be an issue on certain situations, but it still has reasonable noise level.
