Only the 50mm 1.4 has AF-S. you can check out the price guide at the price guide section. Depending on your needs, you can get 35mm, 50mm or 85mm

$840000?! What currency are you talking about? Depending on your needs, the 35mm f1.8 does work on your D5000

Definitely a typo, who would pay $840K for a lens? Can pay for a condo alr.:bigeyes:

The 35mm f1.8 is certainly capable in handling low light conditions
