Special edition of the popular 50mm f/1.8 NIKKOR lens. Boasts a compact and lightweight body with a retro-look and feel.
With a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, this is a great lens for low-light situations or when shallow depth of field is required. An aspherical lens element reduces aberrations and increases resolution, and Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) delivers whisper-quiet operation.
The retro design pays homage to vintage NIKKOR lenses and perfectly complements the looks of the Nikon Df.
