'Best' inexpensive lens for D800. Used perhaps?
Oct 10, 2012

I just dropped $3k on a camera and so my budget is rather tight for a few months.  Are there any inexpensive older lenses (from the 80's, 90's etc) that have fantastic image quality I can find a good price used?  The sharpest lens I've ever used is the 70-200mm VR II lens.  Could I even come close to this image quality for less than $1k on a used lens?

I just bought the 50mm 1.4 AF-S prime lens.  Rather inexpensive, but everyone raves about the image quality...
