Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G vs. Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 AIS - Page 2

post #11 of 15
If you're getting the D7000, save yourself even more money and get the 50 f/1.8 Series E or 50 f/2 AI. Both are practically free and will meter just fine on the D7000. I personally have an f/1.4 AI-S that I shoot from time to time on digital, and I got it for a song.

The price is old manual lenses has gone up a lot the past 2-3 years with all the new m4/3 and Nex cameras out.

I don't think the 50mm f1.8 series e is a sharp lens. Lately I've seen the series e 50mm f1.8 go for around 50-70 bucks shipped. For that price you might as well pick up the 50mm f1.8D. I had the sigma 50mm f1.4 and the Nikon 50mm f1.4g, but my all time favorite Nikon lens is the 35mm f1.8g. Awesome lens at an awesome price.

I had the d7000, it took great pictures. My first d7000 had a faulty autofocus.

If you're buying from KEH, there's no way in hell the Series E is that much... I typically see them for around $30 at most. I paid $105 for my BGN (more like near-mint--it just had a speck of grit in the focus ring) 50 f/1.4 AI-S.

I got my 50mm f1.4 AIS for 20USD, if my currency was converted, that aside I think you should go for the 85mm F1.8 or longer lenses, landscapes shine well with ultra wides or telephotos quite nicely, 50mm's are more of a general purpose lens.

That being said if its only for landscapes you would not need shallow dof omitting the need for the 1.4 over 1.8.

That depends heavily on shooting style. You can use whatever lens you want for whatever purpose as long as you can frame it right and get the perspective you desire.
