Hi,
I'm a poor guy looking for a prime lens for my D70.
I'm looking at 2 lenses:
1. AF Nikkor 28mm f/2.8D
2. AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D

I read some reviews on both these lenses, but I would like the opinions of some experienced users here (in particular the NUG). I actually want a faster fixed lens than the kit lens, with coverage of a film camera equivalent of 35mm. The AF Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 is a bit too expensive for me.

So I guess the 28mm f/2.8 should suit me fine as this will give me something like 42mm lens coverage on the D70 and my budget.

Anybody knows the estimate prices of the 28mm f/2.8 and 24mm f/2.8.

Thanks.

You can consider AF 20 f/2.8D, AF 35 f/2D or the AF 50 f/1.8D. Versatile, well loved range for primes. :)

Thanks espn for your very prompt response. I think I'll settle for the AF 35 f/2D as this is within my budget. The AF 20 f/2.8 is definitely better but will blow my pockets.

Thanks again.

How about trying the Sigma 24mm f1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro?

Hey thanks for your recommendation. Do you know the price of this lens? What's the filter size? Reason why I was looking at the Nikkors is that they're all 52mm filter size and I have quite a number of filters of that size.

Thanks.

Note sure. You might want to check with Cathay.
