    Did you ask whether there's stock in the first place? Price got include GST? One of the common tricks is to quote you cheaply, get you interested, then say out of stock and recommend you something else which you have not researched on.

    oh i see, thanks Spree86!

    U mis understand , theres nothing wrong with mf. Im just highlighting to u, the af-d lens will not af on ur d3.1k.

    Well If mf is not a concern, u can consider the 50mm f/1.2 ai-s, BIGGEST AND FASTEST 50mm lens from NIKON. Else what I had listed in ur other thread.

    If MF is not a concern, try the AF 85mm f/1.8D. When you next upgrade to a body with screw drive (like D7000) you can AF with it.
