The compact and lightweight Nikon AF Nikkor Prime lens is a great choice for travel, portrait, sports and general photography. It offers a minimum focusing distance of 1.5'. The Nikon 50 lens has a fast f/1.8 aperture that blurs the background (bokeh) to creatively highlight the subject. It also lets you capture clear photographs in low-light conditions. In the Live View shooting mode, you can use the aperture control ring to manually focus the lens. Plus, it has a rotating zoom system. This Nikkor lens has a Super Integrated coating, which reduces ghosting and flaring. Its filter has a 52.0 mm diameter. This moisture-resistant lens comes with a lens cap for added protection. It weighs about 5.5 oz, so you can easily carry it with you wherever you go.

This is really a great lens. Unfortunately, Target doesn't have a clue. Target lists the "zoom range" of this prime lens as "70-200mm". LOL! They also state that the filter size is 55mm - it is not. This lens uses 52mm filters. [...].see moreof the reviewer's review

I received this lens as a hand-me-down from a friend and even though I have newer lenses it has become my go-to lens. It's fast and sharp and never lets me down.see moreof the reviewer's review

I was excited to get this lens and shoot, but I soon discovered that the auto focus function is NOT supported with my Nikon D5500.
