On the other hand i see you did say you cannot afford the Nikon 85 1.8G which cost $500 dollars, but the 16-85 cost even more so how would you be doing that if you say your budget is $300? On the other hand, for a little bit more than 100 you can get the 16-85 USED, i got mine on Craigslist for $440, is a great lens overall, has metal mount, well balanced, faster than the kit lens and darn SHARP.

I am not opposed to buying used or reconditioned, so I think if I got the 16-85 used, I would sell my kit lens and the effective difference would be somewhere around $300.  The Nikon 85/f1.8 is a reletively new lens, so I didn't think it was reasonable to expect I could find a used one for $300 -- if at all.
