About Nikon 50mm

While zoom lenses are certainly convenient, they typically do not produce sharp results at each zoom level compared to fixed focal length lenses. The Nikon 50mm lens has a fixed length. These fixed lenses are often called prime lenses, and 50mm is the perfect range for portrait photography, giving a highly accurate rendition of what the human eye sees. This Nikon lens is sharp and is also extremely wide, giving you a great depth of field. You can find f/1.8 aperture models, as well as a Nikon 50mm 1.4 and the even wider Nikon 50mm 1.2. With apertures this high, you can capture significant depth for optimal control. You can find thousands of new and used Nikon 50mm lenses on eBay from a variety of experienced sellers. If you want a great portrait lens that does not give you fuzzy shots, add this Nikon lens to your wish list.
