This special edition of the 50mm lens is identical in every way to the standard AF-S 50mm 1.8G, but with retro silver band meant to complement the classically-styled Df camera body.

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G is an inexpensive, high-quality standard prime lens for Nikon's FX (full frame) and DX (APS-C) DSLRs. A standard prime is one of the best purchases you can make for a DSLR system - the classic 50mm focal length is amazingly versatile, and typically offers extremely good optical quality for a very low cost. The Nikon 50mm F1.8 G is no exception. A lightweight, no-frills lens on full-frame DSLRs, it offers an effective focal length of 75mm on Nikon's DX format, making it very useful for portraiture and low-light candid photography at a bargain price.
