      Alex, why did you change 1.4G to 1.8G? What are the reasons?

        I practically did not use 1.4, on the other apertures I did not notice significant differences and advantages of 1.4g, so I switched to the one that is cheaper

    Your opinion about the focusing speed between the G and D versions of the lenses is interesting.
    And which of all the fifty dollars is still your favorite?

      G 1.4 is slower behind D 1.4. 1.8G and 1.8D have the same focusing speed. Personal preferences are described in the Personal Experience section.

    If there is a motor on the camera, I do not see the point of overpaying for the G-version. I tested 3 fifty dollars (http://anechaev.org/2012/11/test_poltinnikov_nikon/), 1,8d turned out to be identical to 1,8g in the picture. Although it seems like another optical scheme.

    Everyone should have fifty dollars! It greatly changes the opinion of the resulting photo after the whale zoom for the better ...

      As for me, this is a somewhat ambiguous statement. I do not argue about the quality of the photo, but it's too narrow in many cases. And I will not say about the whale 18-55 crooked word for its cost.

    Hello Arkady! Thank you for the article ! I would like to hear your opinion on what to choose for a photo in a church and in poorly lit rooms (I use D90) .:
    1) 1.4D or 1.8D.
    2) Will there be enough aperture at 1.8!
    3) What is the best sunny day for a portrait!

    Thank you in advance for your reply!

      In both cases I recommend 1.4. In a 1.4 ISO church, typically around 640, it depends on the amount of light.

    in the case of crop, 50 mm is such 85 mm for the poor. not the most convenient focal one and they are usually used because of the exceptional cheapness of 50 1.8 in all systems.

      not 85, but 75 + no one says that be sure to fifty dollars should be used on crop.

    I bought myself a fifty-dollar f / 1.8G AF-S, I am not completely satisfied with the image quality, I shoot the D60 in A mode, the pictures are not very sharp, as I would like. Can there be any settings in the camera itself? Tell me please. It seems as if there is not enough stabilization, there are pictures even blurry, although I set the exposure, as I read above the focal length of the lens itself, there is noise, although it is about 100.

      If you shoot “in the open”, then a little “soapiness” of the picture will be present. If you have this happening on 5.6, then check it for front-back-focus.
      Nikon practically does not have this ailment (well, almost), but maybe you took a lens ...

    I read your articles with great interest. I even get angry, sometimes when there is nothing new for a long time. I saw a lot of new, useful and simply interesting things for myself. But it seems to me that 35 is more in demand for the crop. I have 18-55,55-300 and Helios-81N. The latter is simply a wonderful lens - aperture, bokeh, reliability, but here's a focal one ... Many times it rested against the wall - you still would have to go, but nowhere. At my zooms, there are more shots bypassing the focal 40-60. I wonder how you are in percentage terms.
    Thank you so much for your work.

        Arkady, I have a question in connection with your preference. I have a D5100 crop and I would like to have a fix for a landscape and a portrait on location, if, of course, it is possible to implement it in one lens)) What would be better - a fix 30-35 for the crop, or the same, but for FF, or 50 mm in the same two versions - either crop or FF. I am a little confused about the choice. thanks

        Fifty - he's fifty, they don't exist DX, they're all FX. This does not imply the use of 35mm on the crop, and the language does not dare to call the DX 35 with its distortion - 'fifty dollars'.

    Thanks for the article, Arkady! I completely agree with everything, since I myself am an ardent supporter of fifty dollars, from different times and countries. And as it is precisely noticed that the best of them in color rendering (as for me) 50mm 1.4G, unfortunately, is the slowest.

    Arkady, good day! I read your reviews and “questions and answers” ​​at fifty rubles, in great detail and understandably - on the one hand. On the other hand, it is complete confusion and it remains which lens to choose .. ((
    I have a D90, I am a beginner photographer. The camera is already the second year with a whale 18-105 lens and a long overdue desire to buy 50MM.
    Purpose of shooting: weddings, children, portraits (including in the studio) - i.e. conditions are very different. I like photos with a wide aperture - when there is significant blur. Bokeh.
    I understand that all tasks cannot be solved at once with one lens, but you have to start somewhere.
    If we talk about cost - I am ready to spend more money at once, it makes sense. On the other hand, there is an idea to buy 1.8 for a cheaper price, fill your hand, sell and buy 1.4.
    I really need your advice. Thanks in advance.

      I recommend starting with 1.8G, it’s not that expensive, it has faster focusing than 1.4G.

        Now I choose. I plan to take
        Hand-held Nikon 50mm f / 1.8D AF Nikkor for portraits
        and the new 35mm f / 1.8G Nikkor as a staffer.

        There are D90,18-105 + understanding. Talent is unlikely)

    Hello Arkady! I have a d5100 with whale lenses 18-55. I want to buy 50 g 1.4 for aperture and bokeh. It was written that he is slower than the other fifty kopecks. How will this be specifically shown in real life examples and how much slower compared to my whale lens? Thanks!

      It will appear as a slower focus than on other versions. The speed with the whale is about the same.

      Andrey take 1,8G and don’t rack your brains, anyway you hardly wake up to shoot at 1.4 aperture, I took 1,8G and on this hole (1.8) I took only 2-3 out of a hundred photographs, all the same, my hands reach to cover 2,2 and further ... With 1,4 will be the same story, but spend a lot of money!

    Hello Arkady! I read your review, thank you, informative. Although for myself I determined earlier, 50 f / 1.8D. I don’t need a motor, so I don’t see any reason to overpay for “G”, or is it really better and if so, how much? And one more question, I saw this "Nikon 50mm f / 1.4 AIS Nikkor" in the store's price list. I wonder what kind of lens it is, you didn't mention it, it costs less than f / 1.4D. Or is it something wrongly written?

    Hello Arkady, I’m with this question (a little off topic) there are 2 lenses 24-70,28-70f f 2/8, 28-70 was still under the film, when I came to the store I was told that there was a film lens on the digital mirror not quite suitable, because. the matrix, in contrast to the film, partially reflects the light, or rather, the most part and the new lenses successfully “display” the reflected light, were they right, if so, how does it affect the picture.

    Good afternoon, Arkady!
    I would like to hear the opinion of a professional. I use D90 + NIKON AF 24-85 f / 2.8-4D IF. I shoot, not very actively, and landscapes and portraits (more in percentage terms). I often shoot indoors with a flash (SB-800). After reading the article, a dormant desire to buy 50 'came to life. Looking at Nikon 50mm f / 1.8G AF-S. Does this make a lot of sense?

    Experience: bought a fifty-ruble 1.8G. The first thing I noticed - well, very bright in sunny weather! For shooting at max apertures, I thought about a dimming filter. The second is the dynamic range, the dips of dark tones into black have disappeared, the picture is tone-balanced. Third - sharp already at 2.2, at 1.8 slightly twists the bokeh if the object is close. Very light lens. It seems that I just set the exposure back to normal, over and over again. Generally glad to purchase. What I wanted.
