The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G is a mid-range lens built for general photography under a wide range of conditions. This is similar to the Nikon AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4D, but has the addition of a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) to drive the autofocus. This allows for a faster and quieter autofocus process as well as a full-time manual focus. In addition, the diaphragm now has a 9-blade rounded design in order to render a more natural look for out-of-focus background elements and create a more defined depth-of-field. The f/1.4 speed allows for hand-held low-light photography, and the smaller profile makes the lens easily portable. When used on a Nikon DX-format digital SLR the angle is very close to that of a 75mm lens on a higher-end Nikon FX-format digital SLR or a 35mm film camera. When used on an FX-format camera, a classic normal angle of view is adopted.
