Additional information:

The Nikon Nikkor 50 mm f/ 1.4 Ai-S  is a  standard lens with manual focusing for SLR film and digital cameras with the Nikon F bayonet mount.

It shows very good mechanical and optical quality.

The lens shows good sharpness across the frame without considerable falls at the borders and very good contrast from f/ 1.4.

Vignetting is pronounced up to f/ 2.8.

As compared to the AF version, the Nikon Ai-S Nikkor 50 mm f/ 1.4 does not hold very well  back and side light. There is a visible drop in contrast; ghosting and flare. It is recommended to use a hood.

Compatible hoods: HS-9, HS-11, HR-1

Angle of  view: 46 degrees
