Apparently there are lots of people selling used lenses that do not know what they are selling so at flea markets and some antique shops even some really good lenses are going for around 50 bucks. The 50mm 2.0 here was 30 bucks at a camera store I was told by the person who has given it to me, some scratches though.


I would love a 35mm 1.2 and a..... 12mm that's 2.0 or under but I could only imagine the cost of those hehe

I purchased a new camera on boxing day this year. I had my Nikon D90 up until the moment when I managed to get a 1100 dollar Nikon D7000 for 689$. High ISO is far better, the new AF system is wonderful and overall It is a good upgrade considering what I paid. Shooting a 10-24 F4, 35 F1.8, 50 F1.8, 70-300VR . All the lenses are Nikon, very sharp, however the primes are a step up in terms of sharpness, just amazing in my opinion. Overall very happy with my kit for the upcoming season.
