The Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4G SIC SW Prime Nikkor allows users to take wonderful pictures and it seems to be very well-made. For about $400, the lens is not unusually expensive and although it produces great images at f/1.4, users should choose f/2.8 to get much sharper results.
Creating nice bokeh effect is easy and the autofocus works smoothly. Users should also appreciate the stellar low-light performance and in many situations, it’s possible to snap flash-free pictures using slight ISO boost. For a 50mm lens with f/1.4 aperture, the VR feature isn’t necessary as long as users choose the right shutter speed.
