Pros: Optical performance beyond expectations at all apertures, nice to use.

Cons: Well I would say nothing for the category.

Opinion: I use it on the D750, so my review is related to the use on the 24mpx of this machine. Considered by many to be the best 50mm nikon ever produced, at least excluding the various 1.2 and afs. I did not own them all to confirm it but I can say that it amazed me a lot. Contrary to all the 1.8 that came after this is a lens designed to favor a homogeneous yield up to the edges even at full aperture, in this regard it also beats the 50mm 1.8G (which I had for a while in parallel to this f2 and then sold). So I think we can say that it is the most homogeneous nikon 50mm ever. The G wins, and only in critical situations, by contrast and perhaps sharpness in the center to TA. The blurred is the same as that of the G and judging by the photos also of the various 1.8 AI, which is not soft but is still characteristic and allows creative realizations with a discreet soap bubble effect, better sure than the bad AF. The front blur, for what matters, is so perfect that it could be that of an 85mm f1.4D. Synthesis sharpness: a TA already valid in the center and more than discreet even at the edges. At 2.8 already very sharp in the center and very good at the edges. At f4 an absolute blade over the entire frame. Better than the D (which I had and never loved), with which it does not share the loss of contrast and aberrations to TA, nor the construction of the kinder egg as a surprise. However, it has a bit of distortion (like the G, while all the other 1.8 are exempt). A sensitive spherical aberration at TA combined with well-corrected chromatic aberrations mean that in the portraits it returns a very soft skin but at the same time sufficiently well defined. Here I would say that it is the main feature of this 50mm together with the aforementioned blurred and the homogeneity on the frame. Build quality of the golden age, any self-respecting Nikonist should own at least one Nikkor MF. Ultimately I think it is significantly better than the 1.8D and in my opinion he plays with the G.

Pros: Light, very sharp

Cons: I can't find it against it at the moment

Opinion: My specimen is from 1977, paid very little and bought to shoot us in black and white on film, surprised me on the D750. It's an extremely sharp lens even at full aperture and has a great blur : it's a lot of fun to use. It has a yellow dominant that can still be corrected (if not liked) in post production. I can't get him out of the car.

Pros: Small and lightweight. Risolvenza throughout the frame. Sufficiently clear to TA.

Cons: MAF race a bit 'long. A TA suffers a shift focus pelino.

Opinion: Lente.rnDirei great that it is almost a must-buy, if you love the overall yield of 50 F1.8D ais.rnRispetto series, has a more vintage pasta that distinguishes it, in addition to a lower color saturation, which makes him translate the colors more faithfully to reality. It has a slight yellow cast that 'warms' various hues. The blur is very nice and digradato, to 'crushed ice' effect. A TA is already sharp enough, and f2.8 onwards sharpens his definition statuariamente becoming sharper at f4 and 5.6.rnAnche long distance performs well while maintaining detail and limpidezza.rnDavvero a bell'oggetto.rnMi seems that resists enough well with AC (some magenta reverb, as on all the / ais ... some more than others), but succumbs a little bit in backlight, with a veiled fall of contrast, and an unpleasant effect evanescent at RT. Just know regular conseguenza.rnPer 100/120 € (current prices, in October 2016), it is definitely worth possession.

Pros: excellent yield at all apertures, maneuverability, coast nonsense, simple construction

Cons: nobody in my opinion

Opinion: I still have it and do not ever give away; also used on digital is a lens really amazing. Mass precise fire; if he had the angle of view of a 35mm would be the top for me. Suitable for those who use the 50 mm in the old way; in my opinion the best of the 50 mm f 1.8 for the surrender at all apertures very steady. Optical construction simple but excellent, planar diagram 6 lenses symmetrically arranged in four groups.

Pros: Yield already at f2, color, weight and ingombravo, QUALITY CONSTRUCTION

Cons: It is not a counter because at the time of design and construction the automatic maf not exist

Opinion: Objective of iron and glass by the sharpness and resolution never seen species objectives of '74 already f2 of d7000 and a blade used mainly for portraits but also landscapes with filter nd or reversed to try some shots macro do not see in any problems aberrations or distorting the focus for those not used it takes a week of use before being accurate and fast but the ring has a longer stroke of the objectives of today was very precise surgical say I recommend it because with 50 euro goes to a glass house nikkor really quality
