    AN affordable Nikon AI 50mm

    Not regularly a Nikon shooter, but I do enjoy my FM. Would like to find a useable 50mm to replace the broken one it came with.

    1.8/2.0/series E, whatever is decent and affordable.

    I was working a trade for one with another forum member, but the 3-1/4 X 4-1/4 film holders I had are lost somewhere.
    Tri-X in HC-110 forever.

    Consider an E series 50mm 1.8. Much cheaper and quite a decent lens

    Would my 55/3.5 Micro be suitable?

    Thanks but One thing I always reach for is a fast 50mm.

    I sent a message about a lens. My sent box is empty. Did you get the message? If not please send me a PM.

    I'm no expert, but I recently got the 50mm f/2 AI. I like it very much and it was not expensive. It has very nice smooth and fine focus. Depends what you want to use it for whether you need something faster.

    I have an extra 50mm f1.4 Ai. I really don't need 2 of them. I'm not sure what you are considering as 'affordable' but I know I can give you an affordable price for a f1.4, but definitely not as inexpensive as a Series E or so.

    Thanks folks, going to hold off for now and do some more research.

    I know what I want now, but I'm not sure how much I "need" it.

    KEH has bargain deals for ~100$ for the 50/1.4 AI(s). I'd say that's pretty affordable for this lens.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    You can always buy a 50/1.8D AF brand new for about $100 if nothing else pans out.
