While the optical design of this lens dates back to the late 70’s (this model came out in 1995 and is Nikon’s oldest lens still in production), there is a reason Nikon keeps this little guy in its lineup—it is truly a do-it-all lens. In fact, referring to it as “the Video Lens,” is somewhat unfair considering it does video and SO much more. However of the four, this is hands-down the one to go with if HDSLR is your thing.

Standout Spec: Features the best overall SQF of any of Nikon's four 50mm lenses.
