Nikon AI-S FX NIKKOR 50mm f/1.2 Fixed Zoom Manual Focus Lens
Distinguished by its speed, the NIKKOR 50mm f/1.2 from Nikon is a manual focus prime featuring a versatile normal focal length. Well-suited to portraiture, among other subjects, the impressive f/1.2 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also offers greater control over depth of field for using selective focus. The manual focus design offers precise control for working with subjects as close as 1.7′ away and engraved depth of field and focus scaled benefit working with pre-focus and zone focusing techniques. Additionally, a nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
- Prime normal-length lens is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however is also suitable for DX models where it provides a 75mm equivalent focal length.
- Exceptionally fast f/1.2 maximum aperture enables isolating subjects using shallow depth of field and also suits working in difficult lighting conditions.
- Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.7′ away.
- Nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Precision Glass Molding Flawless Glass is Born from Flawless Molding
In the ongoing pursuit for excellence in lens manufacturing, Nikon developed a special molding technique effective for medium- to large-diameter Aspherical lens elements, which were previously considered to be difficult to mold. Precision Glass Molding (PGM) is the highly meticulous process by which optical glass is softened by heating, then shaped in an Aspherical mold made of special heat-resistant material. This technology has become widely adopted in the manufacture of Aspherical camera lens elements.
Aspherical Lens Element Design Optical Flaw Correction with Superior Resolution
In 1968, Nikon introduced the first camera lens to use an Aspherical lens element. What sets them apart? Aspherical lens elements are lens elements with complex curved surfaces, where the radius of curvature changes to optimize light transmission and correct distortions that occur in “normal” spherical lenses. Aspherical lens elements provide superior resolution performance and contribute to a lighter and smaller lens design.
