You’re not still using your DSLR’s kit lens, right? You are? Nikon’s 50mm lenses are a great place to start thanks to their low price and amazing performance. The new model lacks an aperture ring, but now feature an internal motor, Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor. The older version relied on a the camera’s autofocus motor, which is something Nikon’s entry level cameras lack. Now, with the motor in the lens, this quick 50mm prime becomes a must-have for every Nikon DSLR. It’s still tiny, only weighing 185 grams. Wired states that the lens will retail for $220 and will ship this June. [Nikon]
