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.
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.
Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged
...the nikon 1 system offers great image quality and a fun factor that is off the charts...the 18.5 continues that theme...affordable, fast 1.8 aperture, superlightweight, blazingfast autofocus, a 50mm FOV...and really, it's just GREAT !!! ...just get one and enjoy the ride with a prime lens.
Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Nifty Fifty, Reliable
This lens and the bokeh that it produces is amazing. The Nikon 1 series' low light performance isn't something to write home about. This prime lens help a lot in low light situation. The price is around the same with the 35mm DX lens. I was amazed one shot after another.
Instantly improved the photographic quality from my daughter's V1. It is the Nikon 1 equivalent of the Nifty 50. Great price, and the first extra lens you should get to make this system shine. Will get the external flash to round this out.
Love this little lens. It is light and easy to carry. The f1.8 opening is absolutely necessary for available light photography. This lens is a must have if you are a Nikon 1 shooter.
