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

The Canon EF 50 mm lens is a compact, basic auto and manual camera lens with a F1.8 aperture. A standard lens made of plastic and high quality glass, the Canon EF lens weighs only 4.6 oz, making it highly portable. "EF" stands for electronic focus, and the Canon camera lens has an auto-focus motor built right in. Auto-focus works well; although the auto-focus motor produces a fair amount of noise and the lens' plastic manual focus ring moves with auto-focus. Touching the moving ring during auto-focus could damage the lens. The photographer uses a switch on the side of the lens to toggle between auto and manual focus. The Canon camera lens delivers clear, sharp pictures in a wide variety of settings, including low light conditions. As a standard auto and manual camera lens, the Canon EF provides excellent photos in a variety of settings, but its plastic housing requires some careful handling. 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 »
