AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G

AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm


Ultra-Fast, Amazingly Sharp

Expect outstanding image quality, edge-to-edge sharpness and high contrast with the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G. Brilliant for portrait photography, general use (focuses as close as 1.5 feet) and video recording, this high quality lens produces tack sharp images and conquers low light environments with ease. If you are looking for an ultra-fast prime lens that gives you a standard angle of view, superior color reproduction and smooth, natural background blur (bokeh), this is the lens for you.

AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm


Exceptional background blur

Ultra-fast f/1.4 aperture and rounded 9-blade diaphragm

With a maximum aperture of f/1.4 and Nikon’s unique rounded 9-blade diaphragm, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G renders a remarkably smooth, natural background blur (bokeh). This makes it an ideal lens for portraits—subjects can be isolated from their backgrounds for a dramatic composition.


Versatile angle of view

Great for FX- and DX-format DSLRs

The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G offers a classic, “normal” (50mm) angle of view when used on an FX-format DSLR or 35mm film camera. When used on a DX-format camera, however, it becomes an ideal portrait lens, approximating the moderate telephoto perspective of a 75mm lens on an FX-format DSLR or 35mm film camera. Close focusing to 1.5 ft extends versatility.

Comfortable Working Distance

Classic portraits with a classic lens

The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G allows for a comfortable working distance between you and your subject - producing a more natural response.

Fast Normal

A must-have for professionals and enthusiasts alike

When used on an FX DSLR, the perspective rendered by the 50mm nearly matches the human eye. The background blur is exaggerated thanks to its f/1.4 aperture. This results in a natural appearance of the subject within the image. When used on a DX DSLR, the 50mm lens acts as a 75mm portrait lens with the subject filling more of the frame.




Silent Wave Motor

AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor,
which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology.


Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.

Super Integrated Coating

Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
