This new prime lens has a very affordable price. The WDC review of the Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G discovers that its performance is impressive too
Overall, 50mm primes are rather unglamorous lenses that can look out-dated in a world where zooms are truly dominant. In fact they are often high performers despite their low prices and are therefore worthy of very serious consideration. There is little to fault in Nikon's latest G-series 50mm lens. If you want the simplicity and purity of a standard prime on a full-frame body, or a modest portrait lens on an APS-C body, this lens is likely to be a very satisfying purchase.
