Nikon 50mm 1.8

Well I bit the bullet yesterday and ordered a 50mm from One-Stop Digital, I hope to post up some shots as soon as it arrives.

Now just need to decide on either a flash gun (SB-600) or some studio lights (Interfit EX-150)

mmmmm

You won't regret it, Ian, and at the price everyone should have one in their bag.

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

Oh yes .....& shooting at f/1.8 you'll find you don't need the flash for lots of indoor shots

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

I love my nifty 50. But ya gotta be careful about shooting at 1.8. The dof is very narrow then.

I think that we all love to go to the extremes of lenses because we can, but they are not always the best option, particularly in mostly adequate light. After several months of shooting, I am 2 - 3 stops above 1.8 for portraits, for instance.

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

Ok so what does it do. Where do you use it for i mean. My mate has got one and she makes lovely pictures with that lens. I was looking at it yesterday. The price is not bad either and it certainly is a light weight lens to take along.

Or what does it do better then my lens of 18x135mm for example. I'm just trying to work out which lens is doing what.

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

If I am talking about the same lens your 18-135 has a widest aperture of f3.5. The 50mm has a widest aperture of f1.8. Basically at f1.8 you can let in more light through the lens, this allows for a faster shutter speed with two results. Firstly you can shoot in low-light situations, often without flash (indoors) and secondly allows for sharper images.

That is a layman's explanation. If you want the techies explanation then you'll have to wait for someone else

My main use for this lens will be portraits. A 50mm lens is meant to be the closest to what the human eye sees (although on a D50 this lens is really a 75mm due to the 1.5x crop factor). The differences between the 50mm 1.8 and the 18x135 lens are:

1) With the 50mm you have to use your feet as the zoom !!!! The focal length is fixed.
2) The maximum aperture is 1.8 (against 3.5 for the 18x135). This means the depth of focus is very narrow at 1.8, but you get nicely blurred backgrounds. You can also takes pictures in low light situations as the lens will let more light in at 1.8.
3) There are some tests on this forum that showed that the 50mm produces very sharp images.

I hope this hasn't been too confusing using my limited technical knowledge !!

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

No it sounds good to me. At least i understand it now where you can use that lens for.

I'm just thinking for what would be a good lens for me and would i use it much. It would be a good one for me cause i'm definitely a portrait shooter. And i've held it with a d200. But the lens was very light. (only the lens on the d200 looked a bit out of proportion to me. Very small lens with such a big body

No envy, Bonnie.

The lens for Nikon is only $100. That is of course, if you have the SLR.

Yes pretty much, I know what you mean about the DOF at 1.8. The picture of my mum, her right eye is a little soft and yet I was only stood about 3 foot away.

But overall, very impressed. The focus locks on almost instantly, shutter speeds are very fast when wide open.

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

No Ian, I didn't mean you. Nice photo's. But one thing though. It looks, how shell i describe it. The picture looks a bit sandy to me. Not so sharp should i say. And i've seen that on the photo's of my mate aswell. Not that they aren't nice or good. But I just don't know if like that.

Aha ok that explains it. I thought about that after I'd posted. I've seen that when i uploaded my photo's to photobucket or any other site. All of a sudden the photo gets a bit gritty and not very clear.

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

Where's the best place to buy one of these from? I'm going to get one for my D40 despite it being restricted to manual focus only. Will flog it once / if nikon pull their finger out and release an af-s version.

Are you sure you wouldn't be able to use autofocus on your D40, slinkysteve? It works on my D50 Cheapest place to get one is Onestop Digital - Camera equipment at the lowest prices

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

Yeah, the D40 lacks the motorized pin that drives these lenses. The lack of a AF prime for the D40 is the only major problem I have with the camera. It seems Nikon are moving towards AF-S for all their lenses so hopefully they'll update the 50mm. Other than that minor problem I absolutely love the D40. Very impressed with the quality of images.

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

Ian - I've been thinking of ordering a nifty from one-stop too, and the pictures you posted that were taken with it did nothing to convince me it is not worth it!

Did you e-mail them first to check stock availability, did it come with a lens hood, and what is the filter size, please?

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

This is ridiculous, I can't find the 50mm anywhere. No shops near me have it, onestop is out of stock and the only place that supposedly does have it is ebay.

I really hope Nikon are just running down their stock in anticipation of a nice new 50mm with SWM

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

Slinky - that's the rumour ever since Nikon released the D40 which no longer had the in-body screw drive to allow AF on older Nikkor lenses.

Some folks have even went so far as to mock-up their ideal replacement:



A well crafted fake image, but possibly not too far from the truth?

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

Yeah as chance would have it I spotted that on the dpreview forums today. There was a brief glimmer of hope until I realised it was a fake. The AF Nikkor on the lens gives it away.

Found a 50mm f1.8 available for 79 quid from microglobe for so I'll just order it from them

Re: Nikon 50mm 1.8

Here's one Steve eBay.co.uk: Nikon 50mm f/1.8 f1.8 D AF Lens NEW! 1K (item 200114518450 end time 08-Jun-07 03:37:56 BST)

I've bought from these guys several times, + they are excellent + fast delivery

I've never bought from microglobe + my instinct tells me I shouldn't
