    Default Have you any comment on Nikon 50mm lenses?


    I have been looking and studying a lot on the Nikon 50mm f/1.4D as well as f1/.8D. The latest up in arms big factor to discuss is the contacts being created in Chinese suppliers contrary to formerly in Asia. They discuss construction becoming more plastic content in the f1/.4 as well as probably dropping some top quality in sharpness. Looking for individual expertise from anyone here. Anyone have the created in Chinese suppliers f1/.4D and can comment?

    I do not have any hands-on encounter with either the new 1.4 or 1.8, as I still use my 30 plus season old AI 50/1.4 on my DSLRs. What I have observed second side about the China built 50/1.4 is that the narrow discussions are blend content a awesome way of saying plastic, not steel as on the old contacts. I have not observed anything about picture top quality struggling they are designed in other suppliers to Nikon's specifications.

    The primary fear I would have is if you used a narrow and cross threaded it on, the plastic content discussions might harm simpler than steel ones. I had purchased the contacts used, last drop. It is actually a design Made in certain place which amazed me when I found it. Maybe that is why the past proprietor marketed it. I have done some evaluation with my most loved Nikon 2.8/17-55 and became a bit frustrated. At f 1.4 it is obviously less distinct at 100 percent display resolution than the zoom. At 2.8 factors get better, maybe similar.

    I had purchased the 50mm as a light as well as portable substitute with very brief detail of concentrate for pictures and the price was quite OK, so I will keep it. However it is not the item of cup of choose for the sharpness lover. I do not have any comparison to another 1.4/50 to examine if this is a common issue within the sequence. I have accessibility a 1.8/50 of a buddy, so when he is returning from holiday it might be exciting to do a evaluation with this less expensive contacts. The technical high company's 1.4/50 seems completely OK, no distinction for instance to few decades of age 2.8/20.

    All images with Nikon D200 at similar configurations like as ISO100, NEF, NEF to JPG by PS components, no sharpening. You see a evaluation of the 1.4/50 at f 1.4, 2.8 as well as 4 against the excellent Nikon 2.8/17-55 at 50mm at f 2.8, so complete start. Only ceased down to 2.8 to 4 the 50mm provides similar sharpness and comparison as the high class zoom capability. Keep in mind that I did three successive images for every establishing for both contacts, defocusing to infinity before every taken. Digital camera is on constant tripod, launched by wire with reflection per-release. I then chosen the best pic from every sequence, transformed from NEF to JPG, took a 100 percent cut out of the higher remaining area and stored it as as a JPG at 75-80 percent top quality, to remain within the 150kB publish restrict.

    I think the champion is apparent at complete start aperture but ceased down two actions the 50mm is quite excellent, also considering the price distinction. If you are aim is to copy the normal look of a 50mm on a movie SLR, the 35 is the way to go on a Nikon electronic, at the same time at the price of one quit in rate. The 50 on a electronic is probably a bit a lengthy time to estimated that same look.

    Nordicbiker's outstanding perform revealed the comparative performance of the contacts in a lab setting; the 50 is favorably not as distinct start up as the 17 to 55. The query is if the distinction in sharpness would be apparent in the dimension pictures you will be creating, and what you will be using them for. If you are not creating big enhancements or farming seriously, the undressed eye itself may not so easily choose out the distinction in real world images, particularly if you do not go out of your way to analyze each taken for inadequacies.
