Overview: The AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G lens is ideal for
travel, event, environmental, and general photography. It is an ideal portrait
lens on DX-format cameras, with approximately the same angle of view similar to
that of a 75mm lens on a Nikon FX-format digital SLR or a 35mm film camera. The
fast f/1.4 maximum aperture is perfect for low-light conditions, general, and
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave
Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus.
Super Integrated Coating: Nikon's Super Integrated Coating
(SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color
consistency and reduces flare.
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a rounded 9-blade
diaphragm, which renders a more natural appearance of out-of-focus image
Focus Mode Switch: The Focus Mode switch on the barrel of
the lens lets you easily switch between manual focus and auto focus. If you want
to enable auto focusing, the camera must be set to Auto Focus, and the switch on
the lens needs to be set to "M/A". With most Nikon D-SLRs, the lens gives you a
manual override option, allowing you to rotate the separate focus ring while
pressing the shutter release halfway.
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the HB-47 bayonet-type lens
hood. The hood adds approximately 1" to the overall length of the lens. You can
invert the hood and snap it onto the lens for storage, if desired.
