The Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.8 G is a product that has taken everyone by surprise. Prior to an unfortunate leak on the Nikon website, no one had a clue that the company was upgrading the old, yet very popular AF-D 50/1.8. There were, rather, many other items in Nikon’s kitty that needed an upgradation over this. Nikon however has a good logic behind this move. Since Nikon’s ordinary lenses are pretty inexpensive, most people buy them as their main, initial lens. As a result, these lenses sell like hot cake.
