Re: D200 and D70 - best bang for buck 50mm?

The best bang for the buck would have to be the Nikon 50mm 1.8 D.  It has enjoyed seeing the world on my D70 and continues to be a workhorse on my D800. I do agree that the DX focal length of the 50mm is a bit different than full frame, but you really cant go wrong with the lens. I prefer the D version with the apeture ring as I sometimes use a reversing ring on the 50mm to do some macro work and I need manual apeture control.

Good Luck.
