The Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D Autofocus Lens is a fixed focal length autofocus lens for Nikon 35mm film and digital SLR camera bodies. The lens a 'normal' angle of view of approximately 46° which is not considered wide angle or telephoto but more of a standard in-between field of view that produces undistorted perspective. The modest angle of view allows a lens design which is quite bright and also able to deliver extremely good images without great expense. The bright maximum aperture can produce significant background blur, makes a camera viewfinder easier to see through, and allows use of faster shutter speeds when needed. The lens design carefully uses metal for construction where useful and saves weight where polymers work just as well, the result is a lens weighing only 5.5 ounces; it's nearly weightless to carry and use, a great benefit when traveling or trying to get the sharpest handheld images. Incredibly versatile and sharp, the Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D is an excellent choice any photography enthusiast or student*.
