    Please see http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/5014af.htm

    Those bought recently can confirm this as it is quite clearly printed MIC.

    Eh... nope, I've got a MIJ 50/1.4, it's still metal mount, but white plastic rear cap.

    Just clarified filter thread plastic is what it's referred to.

    The difference is in the filter thread plastic versus metal.

    Actually, I just had the same experience like you. But was buying a 50mm f1.8. This seller saw my interest in buying the lens in other post and PMed me, then he find out my name and HP and SMSed me. He offered me $130, after some bargaining, I said ok, $130 (he offered this price), but then he backed out.....after afew SMSes and PM till the next day, he said he will honour if I still want. But I think not worth it liao, see below:

    Caution: This guy has been in the forum for many years, but seldom post. But he deals alot and he has good comment in his iTrader rating. But he doesn't deal openly! Only through PM and SMS, no posting in the thread!! Anyway, it was his trading remark from the others that sell him out. I check his posting and dealing and realised that he has been buying and selling Nikon 50mm f1.8, and I believe he is making $ out of such deals. But in his selling thread, he states that he is the users, not trader, hiding truth. That's why I have decided not to buy from him and did not pursue further. So I urge all to be wary and dun trust the iTrader rating blindly.


    Anyway I have already ordered the lens from Kho King's online store and waiting for delivery! No point be angry over such people!
