    Nikon 50mm 1.8G AF-S Lens

    I bought this in April and while I absolutley LOVE it (and not 100% set on selling it), I want to get a 35mm instead. I already have a lens that covers 55 which is pretty much the same thing so I don't want to own two lens' that overlap. I decided on the 35 while this one was in the mail to come here so I ofcourse had to try it out!

    Purchased for $220, will sell for $200ppd. Not ISO of anything right now.

    Here are some pictures I took with it at the zoo this past weekend!

    Ok. I'm really camera dumb. What's the difference between this lens and the 50mm 1.8D AF?

    ETA: I looked it up. Nevermind. :-)

    For anyone else wondering. The lens I am selling will auto focus where as the "d" lens will not auto focus on nikons cheaper line of cameras like the d3100,5000/5100,7000 or the d40, 40x or the f3.

    You have a 1.8 zoom? I imagine not... you may still want this lens.

    Well I purchased the 35mm 1.8 today so would I need the 50 also? I have the 55-200 lens that drops to 3.5.

    Here is a link too. Read "compatibility" and it will tell you.
