A Review of the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G Lens

A wide-aperture 50mm lens is one of the most versatile prime lenses almost any photographer can use. If you are a Nikon shooter looking for such a lens for your work, check out this great review of the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G lens.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this excellent video review takes a look at the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G lens. A 50mm f/1.4 lens has a wide range of applications ranging from anything like portrait work (including shallow depth of field) to low-light events coverage. The 50mm f/1.4G features 8 elements in 7 groups, is pretty light at 9.88 oz (280 g) and comes with a minimum focus distance of 1.48 ft (45 cm) for a maximum magnification of 0.15x, features nine rounded diaphragm blades for smoother and more pleasing bokeh, has a Super Integrated Coating to reduce reflections for less flares and ghosting and increased contrast, and a Silent Wave Motor with full-time manual focus override. The lens also works well with Nikon’s adapter for their mirrorless cameras, which will help to future-proof it for any photographers who are using the Z system. Check out the video above for Frost’s full thoughts on the lens.
