Review of the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G AF-S versus other Nikkor 50mm AF lenses

This quick review is based on my use of this lens for almost 3-weeks. It is intended for those already familiar with Nikkor's line of 50mm prime lenses but are wondering how this lens compare with the other Nikkor 50mm autofocusing lenses that I also own. I did however provide a section for beginners or novice at the last section of this review.

AGAINST THE NIKKOR f/1.8D

The Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G is slightly bigger than the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D and a bit heavier but by a mere 31 grams, hardly noticeable at all. Unlike the 50mm f/1.8D, it comes with a reversible hood which does a good job in protecting and shading the lens. Unlike the 50mm f/1.8D which uses a 52mm filter, this lens uses a 58mm filter. Unlike the 50mm f/1.8D which has a maximum aperture of f/22, the maximum aperture of this lens is f/16 (as do the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D and 1/4G). As the "G" suffix indicates, the 50mm f/1.8G does not have an aperture ring while the 50mm f/1.8D has an aperture ring (see notes below for the significance of this).

The new Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G is sharper and has better bokeh. The aspherical element in the new Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G has further improved the acuity of this lens specially noticeable at the corners even at its wide-open setting. Yet Nikon also improved the bokeh of this new lens versus the 50mm f/1.8D! I also noticed some slight improvement in the color and contrast, specially when shot from f/2.0 and above. Focus speed is decently fast and is about the same on a Nikon DX D7000 yet the 50mm f/1.8G seems to be more consistently precise and significantly quieter. Priced very reasonably, this 50mm f/1.

I absolutely love this lens. This lens has not come off my D3100 since I bought it 3 weeks ago. My primary purpose for buying this lens was to take portrait pictures indoors of my 2 year old son. I found that with using the kit lens, I still had to use the flash at times even with a high iso. That's when I started researching new lenses.

I chose the new 50 mm lens due to its low light capabilities. This lens does such an amazing job that I have not used the flash at all since. It is important however to switch the white balance settings when moving from indoors to outdoors. I love how this lens is able to blur the backround, so much more than the kit lens could. I initially bought the d3100 to take better pictures than a point-and-shoot could, I feel that this lens has made a similar step-up from the kit lens.

All in all, I can't see myself using the kit lens again. I easily got used to moving around a lot to take pictures, but when you're trying to focus in on a active 2 year old, you're used to doing that anyways. The investment truly is worth it in my opinion, especially if you're trying to capture those priceless moments.

I got this lens a couple of weeks ago and have put it through its paces. All and all this is a great lens. So lets get started with this review.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROS:
Image Quality: Fantastic. Extremely sharp and detailed images. Even in low light and wide open. No signs of vignetting around the corners even at 1.8. The Bokeh in the out of focus detail is insane.

Quality of the lens build: All and all, it's a very nice quality lens. It doesn't feel like it's going to break if you drop it. Also, the manual focusing ring is really smooth when turning. The AF-S motor is silent. You can barely hear it when it is focusing. Also, it's really fast when focusing.

Weight of the lens and size: The lens it very light in weight. It's one of those lenses that you could shoot all day with and not get tired of holding it on your camera. The size is quite small. I have two camera bodies, 3 lenses and this lens fits great inside my camera bag.

CONS:

You can't be to close to your subject when focusing. And by close I mean a few inches away.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I bought this lens with a D90 body and the pair is great! Also, if anyone is wondering, this lens WILL focus with some of the lower end cameras such as the D3000 and older cameras. This is a lens that's worth the money. I am a college student that is majoring in Commercial Photography, so I know what it's like to be on a budget with money for lenses and equipment. So trust me when I say that this is a lens worth getting.

The 50 f/1.8 is a lens almost every FX shooter should have. However, which one of these you should buy is a little tricky. The D is about $80 cheaper, is smaller, lighter, has less distortion, and has manual aperture control. The D doesn't have auto focus but as of right now every FX camera has an autofocus motor built in. What the G really brings to the table is curved aperture blades, better construction, sharper corners, quieter autofocus and instant manual override focus.

On a DX camera it is still a no brainer lens but not as much as on a FX. The 1.5x crop makes this a 75mm lens on a DX. Usually portrait lenses start around 85mm. So this lens, on a DX, is too long to be a normal focal length and too short to be a portrait lens. With that said, those are just generalities. Even at 75mm it will work great in a dark house and great outside. In the house you may find yourself running out of room to back up. However, that can probably help some peoples photography as one of the biggest mistakes most people make is not framing in close enough. The 35mm f1.8 DX only lens is probably a better starting lens to get as it is ~52mm on the DX and the 50mm f1.8 a good second lens.

I used to own the f1.4G but it was stolen from me. I personally don't believe it is worth the extra money over this. It has 9 rounded aperture blades for a smother bokeh and is 2/3 stop faster but has significant distortion. Also, it has been shown that many manufactures have been playing with the ISO on the edges to get the f1.4. At very wide apertures the light hitting the edges of the sensor is not perpendicular to the sensor but is angled.
