Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Mongolia – AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G

While in Mongolia, professional Nikon photographer Scott A. Woodward and photography enthusiast Chantal Windley were invited to go backstage at the Mongolian Circus. To capture all the action happening behind the scenes, Scott and Chantal brought along the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G.

With a focal length of 50mm*1, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G has a field of view that is similar to the human eye, great for capturing portraits and landscapes with a natural perspective. The maximum aperture of f/1.8 allowed Scott and Chantel to photograph the circus troupe in tack-sharp detail against a beautifully blurred background, using only ambient light available.

Weighing only approximately 185g, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G is the perfect travel companion.

*1 When attached to a DX-format digital SLR, the angle of view is equivalent to that of a lens with a focal length of 75mm in FX/35mm format.
