Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D
1

I took delivery of this lens on Monday and have been testing. So far it's great although auto focus is a little slower than modern lenses that have IF;  but that's OK because most images I will use this for will be static objects.

I am comparing sharpness with my 60mm 1: 1.8 AF Micro and maybe the 60mm wins by a little. In low light however the f/1.8 gives much better results even with very low shutter speeds. As is expected, although the difference is stark. The 50mm has faster focus time and doesn't hunt around  as the 60mm does.

I think it wins in sharpness and colour against my AF-S 35mm f/1.8G also but have yet to do comparison tests.

Verdict; well worth the US$99.95 I paid to Nikon USA for this refurbished lens. I have rated it  **** 1/2* because I don't yet know what perfection is.
