Hello, As Uncle Joe reported in his last blog post their is a new 50mm Prime Lens for us D90 users avalible now from Amazon. Anyway I thought I'd post some info on it for you all. I think I'll be getting this lens also since I always wanted the old nifty 50 but never did pick one up! I believe this new lens has the built in focus motor so it will now focus on the Nikon D40 if you still have that camera in your arsenal. This FX lens on the D90 would be more like a 75mm lens on our DX camera.
Fast, upgraded f/1.8, compact FX-format prime lens
Newly developed optical system with Aspherical lens element
Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
M/A Focus Mode Switch
Optimized for edge to edge sharpness on both FX and DX-format D-SLRs
Fast f/1.8, compact FX-format prime (fixed focal length) lens
Optimized for FX-format D-SLR cameras but equally at home on any Nikon DX-format D-SLR, this updated classic with a fast maximum aperture is ideal for everyday shooting, perfect in low lighting situations and great for producing images with beautiful background blur (bokeh). The AF-S 50mm f/1.8G includes Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) for fast and precise autofocus, M/A Focus Mode Switch for seamless changes between manual and autofocus operation and an aspherical lens element for outstanding optical performance with high contrast.
