Nikon Nikkor 50mm F/1.8 Fast Prime Standard Lens - AIS Pancake Version


Here we have the Nikon Nikkor 50mm F/1.8 fast prime lens with both caps. It is the smallest version of the Nikon 50mm 1.8, commonly called a pancake lens. This is one of Nikon's legendary lenses, well-known and loved for its sharpness, color, contrast, and fabulous bokeh.

The aperture blades are oil free and actuate perfectly. The glass is free of fungus, markings, haze and balsam separation. There is one small scratch on the rear element of the glass but this did not impact images when tested with the Sony a7 and an adapter. Even though it does not impact images, the lens is being sold at a discount because it cannot be called technically perfect. The filter threads are in great shape, as is the mount and aperture/focus rings.

This lens has a fast aperture of 1.8, allowing excellent low-light performance, and is well suited for night time street photography when the available light is low. Also perfectly capable of standard snap shots, portrait work, sports photography, and more. This is the standard, all-purpose lens of exceptional quality.

It's also compact enough to be a great travel lens.

The lens produces exceptional images due to typically excellent Nikkor construction, featuring multi-coated elements to reduce flaring, ghosting, chromatic aberration, and other optical artifacts. The build quality is fantastic, with a perfectly weighted focus throw and an aperture ring that clicks solidly into its F-stop detents.

This lens uses Nikon's ubiquitous F-mount, the standard mount they've used on every SLR camera from 1959-present day. It will mount to every Nikon SLR camera, ever made, and will work perfectly.

Additionally this lens will mount to many mirror-less, micro 4/3rds, and other modern cameras with suitable adapters that can be purchased for often under $20.

Just an amazing lens that will capture exceptional images for decades to come.

The lens will be packaged securely and shipped immediately.
