    thanks, I shall keep an eye out. They are mostly selling on ebay for $200-300 so I think luck will definitely come into it.

    nikkor normal lenses

    Put up a WTB here. There are many here who might sell at moderate prices to see a fellow APUGer find what they want.

    that is a good idea. I might forego a 50mm and get the cash together to make a serious offer for a 35/2, then post a WTB.

    $200-300? Sounds steep for a 35-40 year old lens. More like a hundred, but what do I know.
    Here's a link to a great resource for info on older Nikons and Nikkor lenses. Knowledge is power. http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography...dels/index.htm

    I have the 50mm f/1.8 Series E. and the 50mm f/1.4. When I do not need the lens speed, the 50mm f/1.8 is a darn good lens for a reasonable price.

    The 35/2 Nikkor-O is much sought after by the m4/3rds crowd. I was kinda surprised to get my current copy for $65 or so. Granted, it was non-AI, but I did have a beater that had the AI ring on it. Six screws on each lens, and the rings were swapped. KEH usually has them for about $100-$130, depending on condition. Note: the O was never an AI lens, so, it'll be either a milled AI'd lens, or a factory AI'd lens, even if KEH or eBay sellers call it an AI lens. The AI/AIS lenses usually run another $60-$70 over the O lens, btw.

    Wanting a "cheap" 50 (I bought the 1.2/50 new for just over 400 euros last year) for my FM2n, FE2, FA, I got myself a 1.8 Ai-S for 50 euros. I was really looking for a 2.0, but couldn't find it.

    That 1.8 is reasonbly small and optically a great lens. I've used it a lot for outdoors portraits with Tri-X, close up and personal at f2.0 or 2.8, and it's IQ is amazing for that sort of work. Really sharp in the centre, great out-of-focus rendering. You can't go wrong for 50 euros!

    Best cheap 50 is the F2...the pre-AI "K" version is the cheapest of the F2 versions.

    i loaned my 35 f2 to a friend going to afghanistan or something equally silly, and so naturally wondered what it would cost to replace if it got blown up -- i checked keh and ebay and $100 for a clean example was about right. It is non-AI.

    Really, put the word out that ur looking for camera gear, stuff will show up. People know I collect and give me this stuff on a regular basis.
