Nikon 50mm f1.8 Nikkor AI-S (0.6m) - Lens

Nikon 50mm f1.8 Nikkor AI-S (0.6m) - Lens

Manual focus normal lens made for F-mount SLRs by Nikon. This lens is the North American version of the 50mm f1.8 Series E. Just like that lens, it retains the same optical formula as the other 50mm f1.8 AI-S lenses, but with lower quality materials and coatings. It has the AI ridge and AI-S indent, so it will meter properly on most (excluding F, F2, and Nikkormats) manual Nikon SLRs and will work with the advanced program modes of later cameras. Plastic/metal body available in black.

  • Nikon 50mm f1.8 Nikkor (6 elements, 5 groups)
  • Minimum focus distance: 0.6m
  • Aperture blades: 7
  • Size: 23 x 62 mm
  • Weight: 148g

Nikon F

Nikon introduced their first SLR, the Nikon F, in 1959. Alongside it they unveiled a series of lenses and a new lens mount that would carry them to professional success for the next decades. To this day, all Nikon DSLRs use the Nikon F mount.

In the beginning, Nikon lenses communicated aperture information to the body using a metal coupling fork, affectionately known as "bunny ears". Soon after, Nikon began using a similar system that automatically told the camera the maximum aperture of the lens. This Automatic Indexing (AI) system stuck around for decades in lenses and is still found on Nikon's high-end professional DSLRs even though new lenses communicate this information electronically.

With only minor compatibility issues (don't use a pre-AI lens on AI bodies or modern digital cameras), Nikon F lenses and bodies are pretty much interchangeable.
