Nikon Releases AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G Lens

Nikon rolls out an AF-S prime lens F1.4G 50 mm in celebrating the company's 75th anniversary of Nikkor Optics. You would think they came out with at least one stop faster Nikkor at its third quarter century milestone. Perhaps there are more to come later. It does feature a silent Wave Motor for faster and quite focusing; the built-in focus motor will support its entry-level Digital SLR D60/D40x/D40 that built without an in-body AF motor. $435.95 will secure you the new Nikkor when it hits the shops in December.
