New to Nikon (and dSLR), confused about lenses, want a 50 mm 1.8
Sep 19, 2012

I just bought a d5100. I want to get a decent 50 mm prime lens (I understand that f1.8 is generally much cheaper than 1.4).

My previous camera was a sony SLT 33. I understand that the lenses in these mid or entry level nikons aren't compatible with a lot of older lenses. So I wanted some advice for what to buy, so I can be sure I'm not going to buy a lens that won't work on my camera.

Edit: To clarify, am I stuck buying first party lenses? What's the cheapest 50 mm prime lens with autofocus that will work on my camera?

Nikon D5100
