A complete systematic set of relativistic mean field calculations are presented for the 2p-1f-1g shell nuclei with 28≤Z≤40; 26≤N≤50, both for isotopic and isotonic chains. Two sets of Lagrangian parameters NL1 (most successfully used in the past) and NL-SH (recently proposed) are used. Also sensitivity of the calculated results on the gaps required to account for pairing is investigated. The calculated binding energies, one (two) nucleon separation energies, the deformations and quadrupole moments, the point and the charge radii, isotopic shifts, densities, alpha staggering and the related quantities are systematically analyzed. The calculations are in good agreement with the experiment. The set N1-SH seems to have an edge over the set NL1 especially for the neutron rich nuclei.
