With its f/1.4 maximum aperture, this high-speed lens delivers superior images, impeccable background defocusing and amazing low-light performance.

The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G offers supreme performance on our DSLRs. Coupled with an FX-format camera, the 50mm focal length makes it remarkably adept at a broad range of general photography. On DX-format cameras, the angle of view is similar to a 75mm lens (in 35mm/FX equivalent), making it ideal for portrait photography.
The wide f/1.4 maximum aperture produces portraits with exquisite background blur that beautifully isolate your subjects. The rounded 9-blade diaphragm renders a more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements, making your shots truly spectacular.
Our Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ensures that you never miss the perfect shot. This unique system quickly and quietly achieves precise autofocus to constantly deliver sharp images. Capture highly detailed close-ups with its 45cm minimum focus distance, opening up a world of creative opportunities.
