Nikkor-H.C 50mm f/2 Non-Ai is a standard prime lens still regarded as one of the world's top ranking optical instruments, even today. The 50mm lens is compact and versatile lens suitable for portraiture and an array of photographic applications. It has sharp optics that can compete with modern lenses. The manual focus Non-AI lens requires stop-down metering on modern cameras for accurate exposure. The added NIC (Nikon Integrated Coating) on air-to glass lens surfaces minimizes flare and ghosting, even in challenging shooting situations. The 50mm lens employs optical construction of six elements in four groups, 46° angle of view, 2 feet close focusing distance producing a 1:9.7 magnification ratio, six aperture blades and 52mm filter thread.
