Review summary from DPReview

September 2008
This is a lens which offers a great deal for the money, but is naturally not without its faults. It's an ideal partner to full-frame DSLRs, but also works well on DX as a short portrait lens. It offers the usual advantages of a prime, i.e. a bright maximum aperture for low light and shallow depth-of-field work, coupled with truly excellent image quality when stopped down.

Conclusion

Despite its age, this old favourite still has much to offer for the modern photographer. It's an ideal partner to full-frame DSLRs, but also works well on DX as a short portrait lens. It offers the usual advantages of a prime, i.e. a bright maximum aperture for low light and shallow depth-of-field work, coupled with excellent image quality when stopped down; in both regards it offers users capabilities which simply aren't available from zooms.

Reasons to buy

  • Excellent image quality when stopped down
  • Essentially no lateral chromatic aberration

Things to consider

  • Distinctly soft at wider apertures
  • Bokeh chromatic aberration, most visible at wide apertures
  • Broad blue-coloured halation at wide apertures
  • Vignetting at wide apertures on full frame

Suggested for

Everyday photography on full-frame and APS-C, where its excellent sharpness deliver great results at optimal apertures

Not suggested for

Wide-open use on full-frame DSLRs, where heavy vignetting and poor corner sharpness can cause issues (unless you like the effect) and lack of built-in AF motor limits usefulness on entry-level Nikon DSLRs.

Nikon 50mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor Lens: Review from dpreview.com
Read the full Nikon 50mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor lens review at dpreview.com
The AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D is Nikon's current version of their fast 'standard' prime lens, and while this specific model was introduced in 1995, the basic optical design dates back to the manual focus 50mm 1:1.4 AI of 1977. It features a traditional layout of 7 elements in 6 groups utilizing spherical surfaces only, which Nikon claims will deliver distortion-free images with superb resolution and colour accuracy, plus high contrast even at maximum aperture. The 50mm focal length classes it as a 'standard' lens on the FX format, with none of the 'perspective distortion' characteristic of wideangle or telephoto lenses, whilst on the vastly more popular and widespread DX format it behaves like a short telephoto, ideal for portraiture.
