Hello everyone, first off I would just like to comment on how much I enjoy reading this page daily. I am fairly new to photograhpy and this page has given me years of knowledge in just a couple of months. I would like to thank the all the exprienced members for taking the time and having the patience to respond to some of the more novice posts.

The question I have is I have decided that I will need to add faster glass to my Nikkor colection(you can see it in my profile). I thought a normal prime lense would be great for general portraits indoors in low light. I have have narrowed it down to the following three choices. Each one has it's own pro's and con's in my view. I would love to know your views and why.

1. Nikkor 50mm AF f1.8 - COST/fast/no "D" tech.

2. Nikkor 50mm AFD f1.4 - faster/"D" techno./similar to above
but almost twice the price

3. Nikkor 60mm Micro AFD f2.8 - slower/will allow me to venture
into close-up photography/"D" tech./costs a bit more than
above but could be used as double duty lense.

Weight is not an issue, but obviously cost is.

Thanks,

Joe
