Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor

Review Date: Oct 30, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $50.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Probably the best quality and cheapest Nikon lens you could ever add to your system. Razor sharp and fast.
None whats so ever.

This is my second AF 50mm f1.8 lens {Japan made N version)
I purchased the first AF version with the narrow focusing ring and regrettably I sold it along with a F501 to a friend.
"He still uses this lens today and believes it to be the sharpest he has."

Nikon 16mm f/2.8D AF Fisheye-Nikkor

Review Date: Oct 30, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $425.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Superb build quality, pin sharp images, bargain price compared to the AFD 14mm f2.8

I purchased Nikons AFD 14mm as I wanted something wide for my S1 and S2pro cameras.
I wish I had waited because shortly after I managed to pick up this lens from a dealer in North Wales.
Since then I haven't used the 14mm, this little gem is smaller,lighter and gives a wider angle of view for less than half the cost.
You can correct any curvature in PS if needed.
Used on my 35mm film cameras and I can create ultra-wide images with distortion if and when required.
