IF I get a D800E for landscape, I will start with used AIS 18, 28 PC and 50/1.2. Each should be no more than $500. Maybe also a used AIS 200/4 micro. Those Nikkor AIS are bargains. Need to sell a few L's to fund camera plus lenses; but I have been parring down my L's to the bones already. Painful . . .

If you really don't mind manual focus, there definitely seem to be a lot of possibilities, at good prices. That said, I've never been very impressed with the faster Nikon 50s. They rarely seem to offer much over their slower brethren, save at max. aperture where sharpness is not so great to begin with.
