    ask your friend what exactly won't sync well????

    My 50/1.8 works very well with my D80. I don't see why it won't work well with the D90.

    D90 and 50mm is a great match.
    When I was using D90 last time, 50mm is on camera almost all the time. nice walkaround as well as good portrait lens on crop sensor body

    Shouldn't the 50mm F1.8 lens work on all Nikon's DX cameras?
    FX format cam, I'm not too sure about that.

    It's not a DX lens, so why wouldn't it WORK with an FX camera?
    Even the 35/1.8DX will work on an FX camera such as D700

    Any Nikon f-mount lens will work. This is also covered in your manual.

    I do suggest reading a bit more about your camera. The manual is a good place to start. Please show some initiative to at least learn the basics of your camera. Google can help too too:

    good choice!

    50mm on a FX lens!

    dump that kit lens and use prime lens, helps learning!

    FTW!

    f mount is the name for nikon type mounts.

    basically, using nikon bodies means u can use their lenses from the oldish type but good or can be good or better to current ones, from G to VR to tomorrow's blue sky lenses...

    good thing about nikon (unlike canon) is that nikon try to ensure the lenses mount is uniform throughout the span of their entire production.



    don't want to answer.

    don't answer.

    tell people to google is as good as not answering.

    maybe he / she googled?

    why assume he / she did not do homework?

    even if the person did not, when some of us are feeling generous, we would feed the info.


    why take on the role of thought police to enforce your thoughts on others?

    1984 all over again?

    must be someone in the 40s...

    I disagree. It's best for people to learn and explore on their own instead of being spoonfed.

    Also, it's part of the forum terms of use to search first.

    you gotta understand that, our bro Rashkae is here everyday answering the same old questions over and over and over and over again... i did post a rather long post regarding ballheads within last 2 months, if that guy searched i won't need to type again... hence, the previous reply regarding ballheads only got 2 lines... yes i am lazy... and that's one post only... our bro Rashkae i think he's quite good to give google link already... i won't bother to do that...

    normal questions including things like below:
    1. what body to buy / which is the best body for this money?
    2. what lens work nicer on what body / which of these lenses are the best?
    3. can X work with Y / what would happen if X mount on Y?

    come on... this is a photography forum... why everyone keep asking about photography gears to buy or not to buy? we should be out shooting and report what we had explored...

    still blur?

    send me pm, i will answer them.

    i don't think your question on SLR body is noob.

    but there was a "joe the plumber" who posted where to buy rechargable batteries, he needs them urgently...

    obviously, he is not aware how blessed we are by the indian gods...

    they gave us MUSTAFA!

    24 hours... rechargable batteries... needs them ASAP... take cab go there, buy and still can look at interesting south asian ethnicity culture in that area (at least we don't have to fly to india to see how south asian are generally like)

    how much better can the package get?
