    Along with that (excellent) Nikkor 50mm f/2 lens that you already have, you might want to think about a zoom to go with it somewhere down the line...Maybe something like a 28-105mm focal-length. The 50mm f/2 lens can be used with low light, and the zoom as your "walk-about lens".

    I've recently returned to the 50f2 myself. Have had a few 50f1.4's and 50f1.8's over the years, yet it seems that I keep coming back to the Nikkor-H 50f2. Have a copy from 1969 that has the factory AI ring on it. Currently is mounted to my newest camera (in age), that being my F4. It has been used on an F5, my F3, F2, my Nikkormats, the FE2 I used to own, at least one or two FM2's that I owned, and also has been used with an adapter on a brand new EOS 5D mark II, when I wanted to see what the fuss was all about @ the camera shop.

    My other lenses currently are:

    20f2.8 AIS Nikkor, 55f2.8 Micro-Nikkor (also AIS), an 85f1.8 Nikkor (factory AI converted), and a 300f4.5 EDIF Nikkor AIS.

    John...Are you & I long-lost brothers or something like that?.. You are into F3HP's, own and use the Nikkor 50mm f/2 lens, and have an F4 as your newest camera (in age)...Me too (mine is both a F4 and a F4s).

    Dann,

    'tis possible. Now, if you somehow acquire bodies identical to the others in my kit, then it may be more likely.

    I would start with a 50mm lens, if you are under a tight budget look at the Ais 50 f1.8, it is really sharp glass, secondly I would save up for a 105 f2.5 telephoto lens, I term this Jesus lens in the Nikkor lens when it comes to portraiture, finally I would look for a nice 28 f3.5, again if funds are tight, the 2.8 is faster but you will be spending more.

    Ain't that the truth. I picked one of those up about 10 years ago, and that is one sharp lens. It's a big bastard compared to the 200 f/4, but boy oh boy, it's a gem.

    Even the non-ED 180's are nice. Owned a couple over the years. One being a factory AI'd Nikkor-P version, the other being an AI version.
