Nikon confirms new 50mm f/1.8 prime lens

Nikon afs-50-1
Slated for release on 02 June, the new 50mm standard Nikkor lens with fast f/1.8 aperture will act as the "ideal second lens for curious digital SLR enthusiasts wanting to venture beyond the kit lens and explore the creative possibilities that a fast aperture can offer, including effects such as blurred backgrounds in portraiture and low-light shooting," says Zurab Kiknadze, product manager of lenses, accessories and software at Nikon Europe.

The lens features an all-new optical design with seven elements, including one aspherical, in six groups. It sports a dedicated Silent Wave Motor to ensure discreet but accurate autofocu, and has a weather-sealed metal mount.
The lens has a retail price of £200 (€232).
