Why are the images from my 50 1.8 G so dark?
Apr 1, 2013

When I shoot with the 50 1.8 at say f4 or any other f stop right to 1.8 the images are darker then my 35 1.8 of my 85.1.8G. Does the lens need to go to Nikon for some adjustments, or is that just the way it is.

I need to open up the 50 1.8 wider to get the same image, the same histogram with any of my other primes.

Its the same on both of my cameras D300 and D7100.

Any insite would beĀ appreciated.
