Prime lens please?

Hi

I'm looking for an auto focus 50mm (35mmm DX) prime lens for my Nikon D200.

Is this my best bet (for the money?)

TIA


David

Re: Prime lens please?

I now only use filters for lens protection if I'm going to be in an environment that has an element of risk from flying debris. I always use a lens hood that does a good job in protecting the lens most of the time.

Sometimes there is an advantage to be had with UV filters if you are in high altitudes or in misty conditions.

If you are going to use them get the best that you can afford.

...which isn't a good start haha

It's always seemed madness to me you spend good money on getting nice glass to get good images then to protect that you put another lump of glass in front.

Gonna have look at the lens hood idea.

I have one for the 105mm.....I'll have look this eve (haven't used it yet).
