Nikon Corporation has announced today a new upcoming standard lens called "Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G Lens" on celebrating 75-years of producing excellent optical equipments. This Nikkor lens is manufactured using one of the finest quality glass optics. Nikon 50mm AF-S Lens features the new built in Silent_Wave_Motor-(SWM) which is completely compatible for fast and precise autofocusing with Nikon D40x and Nikon D60 Digital SLR Cameras.

This master piece of lens is considered to be an essential tool for professional photographers.
Nikon AF-S F1.4G 50mm Nikkor lens generates outstanding results with more attractive blur background. This blur background emphasises the main subject of the picture, which is possible because of Nikon's new type of circular aperture diaphragm designed especially for this Nikkor 50mm lens. This lens also features a fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 with shallow depth of field. Coma and chromatic aberrations are corrected. These aberrations usually cause distortion and vignetting, due to which resulting images are not bright and also have less contrast.

The use of exclusive Silent Wave Motor - (SWM) by Nikon enables fast, precise and accurate AutoFocusing-(AF) operation. Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G lens is equipped with two focusing modes. The users can switch between Auto focusing mode and manual focusing mode easily. It produces spectacular shots in dim and low light conditions and also perfect for general wildlife and travel photography. Easy to handle due to its compact size and light weight.

Usually, normal lens whose optics are not coated, produce images with ghosting and flare. This ghosting and flare usually occurs due to reflection of light inside the lens. But, Nikon loyal users are not to be worried about ghosting and flare, because Nikon coated the optics of Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G lens with superior quality "Nikon Super Integrated Coatings-(SIC)". These special type of coatings eliminates the reflection of light inside the lens. Hence, Nikon 50mm gathers more light due to large aperture and these coatings helps in transforming maximum light through to the camera with out reflection. The resulting pictures are sharp and bright with greater colour consistency.

Nikon 50mm AF-S Nikkor lens also features greater close focusing upto 1.5 ft which is quite helpful to do photography of small objects with greater detail. The rounded 9-Blades diaphragm construction helps to deliver images of out-of-focus elements with more natural appearance.
