Re: Which "Nifty" 50mm ?

You may want to consider used lenses, too. If you're considering anything besides the 50 f/1.8 D (and if not it's a very good bargain for the sharpness you get), the 35 G is probably a better single lens option (50mm isn't the best do everything lens on crop bodies), and if you're considering either 50 f/1.4 ($300-$450 used) the 85 f/1.8D can be had for similar prices, or if you don't mind manually focusing, the older 85 f/2 is cheap, of good quality, and will meter with your camera.
