    Nikon AF-S FX NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Lens with Auto Focus for Nikon DSLR Cameras

    • Bokeh is the background blurring while the subject is in focus.
    • Focus precision between these two lenses are about the same but the 50mm f/1.8G focuses quieter than the 50mm f/1.4D.The primary advantage of the 50mm f/1.4D over this lens is primarily in it being 2/3 of a stop faster and it having an aperture ring.
    • f/1.8G has better optical performance (sharper, better bokeh, improvement on color and contrast), has an included hood, lens pouch, plus the flexibility of being able to use this lens with all of Nikon's dSLR, I strongly recommend anyone looking for a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens to choose this Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G over the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D.AGAINST THE NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4DThe Nikkor 50

    • I let a coworker borrow this on her dx, she and I were both amazed at how incredible her images turned out being despite her newness to photography.f/2.0-2.2 are my favorite for portraits; within a few minutes its simple to get down the depth of field, as distance in front as well as behind the subject really makes the shot
    • Returned it and bought the 100 dollar AF version (which has less barrel distortion)
    • I love his lens as I this is very light and good for portrait with DX camera
    • inherent disadvantage of "prime" lens vs. 24-70 f/2.8 pro lens.- Found some barrel distortion in my laboratory tests...worse than previous model.- Loss of
