Nikon 50 f 1.4 Lens Review

“Classic and fast lens, great for film bodies”

nikon nikkor 50 f/1.4

The legendary Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 D lens is *the* normal lens to get for a film Nikon body. You just can’t get faster than this, plus its superb optics has impressed photographers since 1962. (The D version came about in the 90s.) If you have a film body, this is pretty much a must-have.

Unfortunately for us digital shooters, the 50mm translates into a focal length of 75mm, beyond the normal focal range. While this is not bad for portraiture — a little bit of telephoto often flatters the subject — if you (like me) wanted a real normal lens, this is not it. You’d have to make do with the 35mm f/2 D lens, which is of course one full stop slower.
