NikonNikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G lens : Nikon Europe announces a new wide aperture fixed-focal length Nikkor lens, the 50-mm AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G. This lens has a fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 respectively for a bright viewfinder experience, beautiful background blur with shallow depth of field. It also incorporates Nikon’s ultra-compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ring-type for silent, fast and accurate focusing and enables autofocus in cameras without a built-in motor such as the Nikon D40 and Nikon D60. "This new fast prime lens redefines the standard lens concept," said Robert Cristina, Manager Professional Products and NPS at Nikon Europe. He added: "The fast apertures and silent AF deliver brilliant image quality with new creative options for Nikon digital photographers."

Nikon Nikkor 50mm wide aperture fixed-focal length lens
The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G lens is a fast, fixed focal-length lens with normal picture angle when used with Nikon’s FX-format D-SLR cameras. Its newly developed optical system delivers high performance, as it efficiently corrects sagittal coma flare and chromatic aberration. The SWM ring type offers smooth and quiet AF operation. Although all lens groups shift during focusing, the front element and filter mount does not rotate and the barrel length does not change, ideal for close-up photography or when using SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight units. The Nikon 50mm f/1.4G lens has two focus modes, M/A (manual-priority autofocus) and M (manual focus). With its rounded nine-blade diaphragm, out-of-focus elements appear more natural. When mounted on a DX-format SLR, the picture angle is equivalent to a focal length of about 75mm in 35mm format.
