Re: 50mm lens question for D5100


I have the AF-D 50 on my D3100. Manual focus, but the focus assistant (green dot) succeeds. Exercise helps but moving objects are certainly more difficult in the beginning, but it works. The light meter will work with this lens. I recently purchased the AF-S 35 mm and it is easier to use because it is an autofocus lens. Here are some examples with the 50 mm
