Question

Will the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G AF-S Lens work with a Nikon D80? Auto Focus?

Yes. I have a Nikon D80. All the function will work, even the auto focus. Actually, the auto focus is very fast with this lens. However, only difference is that on D80, this will be a 80mm lens instead of 50mm (normal) on FX. All Nikon DX cameras have x1.6 crop factor. (D3100, D5100, D7000, D90, D300s etc...)

Hope this helps!

Absolutely; the D80 is a DX format camera that uses Nikon's F-mount for lens attachment. The 50mm f/1.8G is an FX format F-mount lens with a built in auto-focus motor. Since you'll be using an FX lens on a DX body, the focal length will actually appear more like 75mm than 50mm. There's also a 35mm DX format f/1.8G lens available at Best Buy... that one was created to offer an equivalent focal length of 50mm on DX format cameras.

Here's my suggestion: go to your local Best Buy store and take your camera with you. The blue shirts will be more than happy to let you try out the lenses in the display case on your camera so that you can choose the one that will work best for your purposes.

Question

Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S - Stock Issues - Anyone have the scoop?

Good Day All,

Leaving for vacation in a month and have had this lens on backorder from Amazon for almost three weeks with shipping times stated as 2-3 months (which usually means no one knows when stock will become available). I've noticed this lens is available in AU, which is closer to where Nikon manufactures their glass (China/Thailand/Vietnam) and am hoping this means the boat is on it's way with more for us.

I'd prefer to order the lens from BestBuy but since the lens is only available for in-store pickup and no store has them, I cannot ever place a back-order.

Does anyone @ BBY have any indication when stock is expected for this lens? If within 30 days, I'd prefer to cancel my backorder and wait it out...but do not want to guess.

Thanks!

Sorry, only Nikon knows when this may return to "normal". At least the Thailand plant is back in operation since the flood.

Yes. This lens will work on D90. I have the Nikon D80 with this lens. But since we have DX camera bodies, this lens will be come a 80mm lens instead of 50mm. This is a FX, full frame lens, so on a FX body, this will be a 50mm. (D700, D800, D3, D3s, D3x etc) But on a DX camera, the focal length will be multiplied by 1.6. (D3100, D5100, D7000, D300s etc...)

The silent wave motor of the 1.8g will autofocus on Nikon's newer consumer and enthusiast SLRs such as the D3100 and D5100. Additionally, the 1.8g (as do all Nikon G lenses) removes the external aperture dial for an internal camera controlled one, meaning that you cannot manually adjust the aperture on the G lens. This is only particularly relevant when shooting video in live view, as the camera cannot adjust the aperture at that time. Lastly, the 9 bladed aperture design produces a somewhat smoother Bokeh.

D: Distance: D-type AF-Nikkor lenses relay subject-to-camera distance information to Nikon SLR cameras that feature 3D Color Matrix Metering, 3D Matrix Metering, and 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash.

G: The lens has no aperture control ring and is designed to be used with cameras that allow setting the aperture from the camera body. G lenses also provide Distance information to the camera.
