Must be a typo but in their "D800_TechnicalGuide_En.pdf" does not appear any 50mm:

"With cameras like the D800E, which are suited to visually complex subjects, it is important to get as much sharpness from the lens as possible. Contrast at the periphery of the image can generally be increased by choosing an aperture two

or three stops from the maximum, although results will vary from lens to lens. Below are some of the lenses you can use for enhanced sharpness:
AF-S NIKKOR 14–24 mm f/2.8G ED
AF-S NIKKOR 24–70 mm f/2.8G ED
AF-S NIKKOR 70–200 mm f/2.8G ED VR II
AF-S NIKKOR 16–35 mm f/4G ED VR
AF-S NIKKOR 24–120 mm f/4G ED VR
AF-S NIKKOR 200–400 mm f/4G ED VR II
AF-S NIKKOR 24 mm f/1.4G ED
AF-S NIKKOR 35 mm f/1.4G
AF-S NIKKOR 85 mm f/1.4G
AF-S NIKKOR 200 mm f/2G ED VR II
AF-S NIKKOR 300 mm f/2.8G ED VR II
AF-S NIKKOR 400 mm f/2.8G ED VR
AF-S NIKKOR 500 mm f/4G ED VR
AF-S NIKKOR 600 mm f/4G ED VR
AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60 mm f/2.8G ED
AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105 mm f/2.8G IF-ED"

Neither this list is unappealable, I have several quite old lenses and I'm hallucinating with the results.

The 50mm f1.8D is quite cheap so i could get it now So if you all think it will be 'same same but different!' then that seems like a great way to go. Just scared that as it is so much cheaper I am getting the 'crappy' lens and will regret it later. I am just a hobbiest so aren't selling photos or blowing them up +++ but want to 'get the shot' and be proud of a great photo. Plus also get a lens that when I do have the $$ to upgrade will still be a fab lens.
