    ah yes that is the earlier version the all plastic model. I have the later version with the aluminum ring that is slightly longer. Its one of those lenses that I always take with me. Well I mean its so small and light I might as well right?

    Over all great little lens that you can get for just dirt cheap. Mine is sitting on my FM at the moment need to remember to take that off when I go to town today so I can put it on the D40.

    It's tiny! Even compared to my fairly small 50/2 AI.

    I've often thought about adding one to my collection along with one of the smallest film bodies (FG etc) to have an easily portable body for occasions when I wouldn't normally take a camera.

    However maybe a 50/2, 55/2.8 and 50/1.8E would be a bit overkill in that focal range... :redface:
  5. Sorry to get off topic, but why do you have your Nikon logo and model number taped?
  6. I used tape off my logos, and then one day my fellow Nikon shooter asked why I taped off my logos? I told him to keep incognito. He then replied, why? We're not Canon shooters! That made sense, so I untaped my logos for all to see. :smile:
  7. Many tape or black out to cut back on advertising to thieves. Same reason why they don't tout D3 or whatever in huge yellow letters on camera straps.

    Cool looking lens but I'm loving the image of your dog even more - is that a skeleton halloween outfit? Cool
