Hi,
I just bought a N75. I shoot mostly b/w so I can develop and print myself. It came with a 28-80mm lens. I would like to buy a 50mm fixed lens. I see a Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor - Gray Market Lens for $105 at Adorama. The American Warranty version is available for $125. I have some questions. Is there a difference in quality between the two? Why do I see the same lens on eBay used for more money than the new one? Is there a reliable place to get a good deal on used lenses online? I'm afraid of getting ripped off on eBay because I am pretty new to all of this. I will limit my questions to these for now and post a few more another day.
Thanks for your help.
Ed
