    Having a f2.8 lens is a good thing for easier focusing and gives you a faster lens in terms of aperture available. But it's not a cure all, esp in low light photography. Would suggest that you try it out first before you buy it (try loan one or rent one)

    The 50 f1.8 is also another one as you'd have to MF with it, so a bit of practising is required.

    practice more with the kit lens first. the tamron 17-50 is over twice the reselling cost of your kit lens, and you are paying only for the increase in aperture, and a drop in focal length from 55 to 50.

    plenty more things you can do with your kit lens. try it out first. =)

    Hi Kenneth83!

    Just bought a Nikon AF 50mm f1.8 (non D) for use with my D60 2nd hand. Got it pretty cheap, waiting to deal...

    Should be fun playing with it and bokeh and sharpness should be great. Just have to take my time and MF.

    lols since i might not be getting my tammy, might as well camp for a 2nd hand 50 prime as well.

    btw anyone knows the difference between D and non D for that lens?

    nvm found the answer to my own question.

    D-type (1992) adds distance information to the data supplied by the lens to the camera
    from http://www.bythom.com/lensacronyms.htm

    This distance information is a great help for flash photography.

    Hi all,

    Can anyone tell me why a AF 50mm f/1.4D is so much more expensive than the AF 50mm f/1.8D?




    Thanks in advance

    Thanks in advance
    Because the aberrations are better corrected and the diameter of the glass used are larger.

    Ya, 50mm f/1.4 $400+, its the 50mm f/1.8 that's ~$170 brand new...

    $300 more for built-in motor, I think we upgrade to another body with motor like D80 or D90 more worth it...

    I wish they put in a small AF-S motor like the ones they used in 18-55 in a 50/1.8, take out the aperture ring if need be and have no change in price.

    thinking of dropping the tamron 17-55mm f/2.8 idea and go for the 28-75mm f/2.8 instead since my 18-55mm kit lens is still doing great. what do u all think?
