Nikkor 50mm 1.8 AI

Quality glass is timeless. A razor sharp, lightweight Nikkor Lens that is exceptionally fast. Now showing it’s age a bit, this 40+ year old manual focus lens has been in my family since my dad started shooting Nikon in 1980.

It’s my go-to for portraits, on the Nikon Z7 I’ll wring a near 80mm field of view full of centre shaprness and funky bokey and coma when wide open and facing strong point light sources.
