Hmm... I think I'm gonna return the 50. It has pretty severe back-focus (I'm set at -14 on the D7000 to compensate), and even at that setting while everything is pretty sharp at close focus at further focal distances it's horrifically soft. Plus, this thing has a crack that's over an inch long on the inner lens tube. Definitely not in KEH's description for bargain.

Get a Sigma, I have never been happier with a 50. Also I think I found two X25-E 64 gigs for 300 bucks, sell one and then get one for basically free.

The Sigma is too expensive. That's why I got the 50 f/1.4 AF-D.

1.8 AF-S G? I've heard nothing but good from it. I've had a sharp 1.4 AF-D before and I loved it. I still don't get how only one of the 60+ lenses I've owned had bad AF.

Seems like there have been a lot of gear changes lately, so (I'm going to regret this ) check your gear list in the first post for accuracy, or if you want to be added, let me know!

I switched the vivitar 50/1.7 for a Chinon 55/1.8 and added a Pentax stereo lens converter and a vanguard VT-126 tripod.

Also, my large format camera is under film SLR. Perhaps we should have a dedicated section for that?

Well it's weird. I'm comparing my observations with the reviews, and I guess it is more or less on from a sharpness perspective, but it just has rather low contrast, which is what the reviews say. The back-focus is quite real, although I do have it pretty well corrected at -15.

And upon further inspection the crack is definitely before the first element, so that shouldn't be affecting the image quality.

We shall have to wait and see.

Anyway, Gone, here's my updated list for the OP:

Nikon D7000
Tokina 12-24 f/4 AT-X Pro
Sigma 30 f/1.4 EX DC HSM
Nikon Nikkor 50 f/1.4 AF-D
Nikon Nikkor 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR

Whatever is in my sig, it's probably in need of updating.
