Re: 50mm lens

on that note, i would add that "they say" is a poor reason to choose any piece of photographic gear -- at least, by itself.

people respond differently to the same gear, depending on individual taste and shooting style. 50 is indeed too long for many folks on DX. for me, i only really came to appreciate it on FX...

that said, i have five 50 mm lenses, 50/1.4 AF-S, 50/1.4 AF-D, 50/1.8 AF-D, 50/1.4 AI, 50/2 AI, with the first and last being my favorites -- but again, i shot them primarily on FX.

my point is not to recommend any one in particular, but basically to promote the idea that there's no "correct" choice, or "best" option. the best suggestion so far is to try the least expensive option, and see where it takes you.

if you find it fits your style, you may explore further. if not, you've lost very little.
