D7100 and Nikon 50mm Prime photo shoot

Postby kingabs » Mon Apr 22, 2013 11:27 am

Hey guys as promised a few photos of a friend of mine and his girlfriend using the Nikon D7100 and Nikon 50mm 1.8G Prime lens.

All images below are not edited in anyway so you can see for yourself the image quality in it's raw format.

Pictures taken at Wollaton Hall and Deer Park in Nottingham where they filmed Batman The Dark Knight rises.

That lens is extremely sharp. The bokeh is good too - similar to the 50mm 1.4G in fact. Bright areas in the bokeh are however a bit distracting, as can be seen in the top two photos (the 50mm 1.4 lens also has similar bokeh). I find the Nikkor 85 mm 1.8G to be much better for portraits because the bokeh is nice and creamy. It seems that the newer 1.8 prime lenses are extremely good for the price and may be better suited to digital autofocus than the older 1.4's which risk to lose a bit of focus accuracy when stopped down a bit (because focus is set at the widest aperture). If I didn't have the 50mm 1.4G already then I would definitely go for your 1.8G lens as I think it is both cheaper and better for digital than the 1.4!

Shadorne i had a go with a 50mm 1.4G today and your right the 1.8G is better.

I think the next lens's i will get will be:

85mm 1.8G
28-70MM 2.8

Both Nikon based lens's
