I tested the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G,
That’s a mouth full, isn’t it? It’s not as complicated as it sounds though. It’s a lens for my Nikon D60 camera. Now before you get the wrong idea or get disappointed reading this: this will not be a technical description or review about the lens. Why not? Well, simple because I’m not a huge camera professional. I just use it and see if I like it. So let’s get to it. You can check the specs out first if you want to.
Up close and personal
So I took this one with me to Dubrovnik Croatia and you might’ve seen some of the photos on my Instagram already. First thing I noticed when I attached this one to my camera is that it’s pretty up close. Which makes sense since it’s a 50mm and I’m used to photographing with a 18-55mm. It did take some time getting used too though. It makes it hard to photograph things like landscapes or squares.
Lights, colors, awesomeness
But that’s really all the negative things I have to say about it – okay, maybe the price is a little high as well, but lenses are expensive so I’m not taking that into account. This beauty makes photos so sharp with so much light! And the depth of field is amazing. If you focus on the right thing – either in the front or the back – it makes the rest of the photo a little defocused and that looks awesome. Also: the colors turn out beautifully. I took it with me to Dubrovnik and it really captured the beauty of this town.
Birthday present, anyone?
So yeah, I can tell you more about it, but I thought it would be best to just show you some of the photos I took. O, and about that small negative thing in the beginning: I’m probably gonna try the 35mm as well, that’s a little less zoomed it but seems to make photos just as great as the 50mm. But one thing is for sure: either of them is gonna be in my possession pretty soon. Because well, look how pretty the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G is!
