Ideal for Nikon lovers
  • This lens is designed to work with Nikon FX-format cameras, so if you've got one of those you're all set.
  • Whether you're shooting random shots around the city, capturing the setting sun on the beach, or practicing with bokeh, you'll love using this lightweight and compact lens.
Stay focused
  • The Silent Wave Motor gives you fast and precise autofocus, so when your kid scores the winning goal you'll be able to capture the moment with clear detail.
  • Sometimes you'll want to take a more hands-on approach to focus. The lens's M/A Focus Mode Switch lets you seamlessly change between manual and autofocus.
Imagery you'll be proud of
  • Enjoy top-notch optical performance with high contrast, thanks to the aspherical lens element.
  • Let your creative instincts run wild by exploring different photographic techniques thanks to the minimum focusing distance of 1.48ft and the amazing depth of field control.
  • The lens provides 7 elements in 6 groups with 1 aspherical lens element to reduce instances of coma and aberration, even if you're shooting wide open.
  • Create more circular bokeh and establish a more natural appearance with the rounded diaphragm opening combined with the 7-blade aperture.
  • Don't like lens flare and chromatic aberration? Of course you don't. This lens helps reduce those effects with Nikon's exclusive Super Integrated Coatings, which also help ensure vividly accurate colour balance.

    Best buy your service is really bad, you have nothing in stock in store, or online ... I have have been waiting since christmas for a Nikon camera that is never in stock... now that I have purchased my camera some where else now the lenses I want are constantly out of stock in store and online :S If your mission is to make your customers shop some where else - Good Job!!! Your succeeding there!! You just lost my sale on a DSLR that was purchased else where, and now your going to lose my sale for lenses..... BEST BUY... Always out of stock the only place you can shop on line and in store and not spend a dime .

  • Very bad

    from Halifax, NS on 10 janvier 2018

    This item has been on sale since Christmas but fact that it is not available in any of the stores in canada. I tried to look for an availability in Halifax, Toronto, Gulphe, Dartmouth, Alberta, Edmonton. It is neither available in the stores in any of the cities nor online in canada. If Best Buy doesn't have stock of the item, they should not put on sale.

  • Nice Lens

    from Saskatoon, SK on 14 janvier 2017

    This 50mm f1.8 did not disappoint! I am new to the DSLR world, and upon reading about which lenses I should invest in, I decided I needed one of these. It's relatively inexpensive compared to others, and the results are beautiful! I am very happy with my purchase.
