    Looking for a 50mm f/1.8 lens for my d70 for some portrait stuff I want to try.

    How much does this lens go for? Any suggestions on best place to buy?

    Thanks

    get it new.

    you never know with used lenses.

    plus warranty, even if you probably won't use it.

    I missed out on one on ebay for $96 shipped (bid sniper I am, someone bid higher), then ended up getting one for $78 shipped the next day. It's my favorite lens.

    Nikons are usually more expensive, dunno the reason why. I got the 50 f/1.8 for about $120 a few months back. It's on my camera (D70s) most of the time. Saving up to get the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 next.

    I love working with my Nikons. The price difference isn't so much that I really care.
