The indomitable Nikon F4 is the most innovative camera ever introduced by Nikon, or probably anyone. The Nikon F4 is what brought cameras into this modern era.

The F4 shattered more new barriers and advanced more technology in bigger steps than Nikon had ever done before, or has ever done since. Nikon's digital SLRs and F5 and F6 are nice, but still none of them, not even the D3, is as earth-shattering as was the F4 at its introduction.

The Nikon F4, F4s, and F4e were released in December of 1988 as a high-end replacement to the awesome F3. Starting at $2500 US (that's $5,230 in 2017 dollars) it was firmly marketed to pro users. The F4s was just the F4 with the MB-21 battery pack (standard in USA) which added 21mm to the height. The F4e was the monster - the F4 with the ginormous MB-23 pack - adding 39mm in height. See the image below for a compare on heights of the various models. Oh, let's not forget the Nikon NASA F4 That was the F4 with a monochrome 8 MP CCD digital back - not made for you - for use on the Space Shuttle in 1991...

The ƒ/1.8 version of Nikon's 50mm has existed in three iterations since the mid-eighties and several more in manual focus form since it was first produced in 1978.

The 50mm ƒ/1.8 AF-D was designed for film, making it compatible with both DX- and FX- format digital camera bodies. On an APS-C sized sensor body the lens provides an effective field of view of 75mm. The lens will not autofocus on Nikon camera bodies that do not have the mechanical autofocusing screw, such as the D40, D60 and D5000 models.
