Nikon 50 mm Review

“One of the best 50mm f1.4 lenses available”

nikon nikkor 50 f/1.4

The current 50mm f1.4 D-series AF Nikkor lens is the latest in a venerable line of 50mm f1.4 Nikkor lenses produced by Nikon since the early 1960’s for both its manual and autofocus Nikon 35mm SLR systems. Performance-wise, it is probably the best autofocus 50mm lens available on the market now, with excellent contrast and resolution from at least f2 and below (I have found as a rule that Nikkor lenses don’t quite have the “snap” and contrast I have seen from Contax Carl Zeiss lenses, of which one of my favorites is the venerable 50mm f1.4 Carl Zeiss T* Planar lens which has been around since 1975 and was recognized as the best 50mm lens available by Popular Photography a few years ago.). If I was still using Nikon equipment, I wouldn’t hesitate acquiring this lens, which still ranks among Nikon’s finest. The excellent pictures I have seen from those using this lens are a clear visual testament to its optical excellence.
