The 1 Nikkor 18.5mm f/1.8 is a nice prime lens that delivers very high sharpness, at least in the aperture range that is not penalized by diffraction (f/1.8 to f/5.6). Optically, it is not without flaws, though. CAs and bokeh fringing are visible, but on a typical level for a fast lens.
This amazing lens is an essential for street night photography by it angular field of view, it sharpness and it high aperture, which all together aloud to freeze the situation at an ISO relatively low . Here a picture I took by night in old Quebec at a speed of 1/40 at 800 ISO.
I used Nikon prime lenses on all of my film cameras and remember the sharpness and shallow depth-of-field at wider apertures. Experiencing some of this again with this Nikon 1 prime lens sounded good.
Love it! Perfect for portraits and is small enough when attached to J5 to fit in a coat pocket. I was debating between this and the 1.2 50 mm fixed which was much more expensive. I am very happy I purchased this one first and I think it is quite comparable to the Sony a 6000 1.8 lens.
This is an excellent all-purpose lens for my Nikon 1 camera. Depth of field is very good, and the autofocus delivers clear, sharp images. I'm very pleased with the purchase.
This is what I'd been missing. I've had a Nikon J1 for ages but never been that taken with it for indoor shots with my little girl as she's always on the move and the shutter speeds always needed the flash with the supplied lens.
Very sharp lens with lots of pop. Lightweight and fairly small. I like having this fast lens in my arsenal; it's a pleasure being able to use faster shutter speeds compared to what I can get with the Nikon 1 zooms.
Great little versitile lens for your Nikon 1 camera. Takes great photos for the low cost
Did not come with lens hood
Returned, wrong size.
The size of the lens is great. The actual clarity of the photos is exceptional for the cost of the lens. For low level situations this lens is the go to lens.
