Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G

Adoption of the 50mm focal length and f/1.8 maximum aperture enables the simple capture of images exhibiting pleasing blur characteristics with hand-held shooting, even in dimly lit indoor settings. This lens is perfectly suited to the spontaneous capture of the intended subject with snapshots and landscape photos. When this lens is used with a Nikon DX-format digital-SLR camera, the effective angle of view is equivalent to that of a lens with a 75-mm focal length.
