The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition lens; a fast
normal-perspective lens that features a complementary design with
enhanced knurling on the focusing ring to emphasize the manual shooting
capabilities of the camera. When using autofocus, a Silent Wave Motor
(SWM) is integrated into the lens to enable fast, precise focusing that
is equally quiet and smooth. One aspherical element is also incorporated
into the optical design to help minimize chromatic aberrations and
maintain high image sharpness and clarity.
