With D distance technology, and a lightweight build, the Nikkor AF D-type Lens is great for a photographer traveling or working with low light situations. The Nikon Nikkor Lens stops down to f/22 for depth of field control, and photographers have the option to focus manually or automatically. With this made-for-travel lens, there is a minimum focus distance of only 1.5 feet. The Nikon Nikkor Lens is a 50 mm f/1.8 lens with multi-layer coating to minimize flare and ghosting. Another added bonus with the Nikkor AF D-type Lens is that the D-type lens gives photographers distance information as part of a flash and ambient light exposure process. Photographers traveling with the Nikon Nikkor Lens will find the small size and light 8 oz in weight is convenient, but even more beneficial is the crisp resolution and color rendition this 50 mm f/1.8 lens provides. Even at the maximum aperture, this lens will provide high-contrast images. Finally, the Nikkor AF D-type Lens is great for traveling, scenery, or full-length portrait taking and will provide quality images for the avid photographer. Less

This 500mm super telephoto lens with Image Stabilizer system and large aperture of f/4 is sure to have wide appeal. Its newly designed optical system consists of 17 elements in 13 groups, including one fluorite lens and two UD lenses. These have eliminated all kinds of aberrations to achieve a level of image quality previously impossible to attain. With ring USM and an improved drive algorithm, its autofocus is the fastest in the world (when used with the EOS-3). The large f/4 aperture permits the use of autofocus when using an extender. The lens's closest focusing distance has been reduced to only 4.5m/ 14.8ft., and it is equipped with full-time mechanical manual focus, a focus preset function, and an AF Stop function. The use of a magnesium alloy for the lens barrel minimizes weight and the lens offers superior dust-proof and moisture-proof performance. Less

When I decided to purchase a fixed (non-zooming) lens for my camera, the most common salesperson response to my inquiry for the 50mm lens was ?what do you want that for? Everyone has gone to a zoom now-a-days.? Well in answer to that question I would have to say that I began my photography... Read full review »
