There's plenty of great options.  This is from an old Minolta ROKKOR f1.4 (but it almost never gets used now that I have the SEL50f18 - it really is worth the money :))

Random dog, 50mm f1.4 ROKKOR

I really like the smooth bokeh this lens produce. I looked over at ebay and overall with shipping the lens would be roughly 100$, so it would be the same price as the AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D I can get for 100$. I guess the Nikkor would be better ?
Also, you say that it is worth the money to get the SEL50f18, why ? Its 300$+, is it because of autofocus ? how fast is it ?
