Hi, I'm an extreme noob who just stepped into the game. And my question is: Is it posible to put the Minolta 50mm f1.7 MD on the Nikon D40? Thanks

If the lens is Nikon mount,of course you can.If its Sony mount,you need to get an adaptor...

I don't remember a 50mm f/1.7 MD lens. Are you referring to the Maxxum AF lens, or the 55mm f/1.7 MD?

It's a Minolta 50mm f1.7 MD Rokkor Lens (from all I can read on Ebay)

Can see Here or Here. It is reviewed by Ken Rockwell as a "very, very good lens"

Oh neat, I didn't remember a 50mm. Looks like a decent lens, but you'll pay more for an adapter than the lens. ;)

How much for the adapter? I'm considering between this and a Nikon AF 50mm f1.8D (which is 150$ used)
