    Hello guys!

    I understanding that this is the best 50mm prime lens and the sharpest! And this prime lest is very chip - 100$.

    I can put this on my Nikon d5100 without been arrested?

    I do not believe that is the best 50mm prime lens, there are better one out there but usually cost more. I don't think people will arrest you if you try to put the EF lens on the baby Nikon. They will ask you why instead.

    You would need to buy an adapter to make the lens fit on the camera. But I suggest you do a little more research, it just so happens that Nikon also makes this lense.
    Amazon.com: Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras: Electronics

    As does every other camera company :thumbup:

    You won't be arrested.
    Of course, it won't mount and it won't work, but no one will arrest you
    You can get the one Dom mentions though and it will mount on your camera. You really won't get arrested. And it won't auto focus.
    Or you could buy the Nikon AF-s version and it will mount, focus AND you won't get arrested.

    Thank to all of you guys. Im new in the forum. and all of you very nice.

    Second, when MLeeK was wrote that the lens don't have a Auto Focus I think in second thought that is isn't worth.

    If you buy the canon version and try to put it on your Nikon body with an adapter. It wont have auto focus.

    But when you buy the Nikon version of the lens and put it on a Nikon camera it will have auto focus. Thats what the AF stands for in the title.

    Maybe that clears up some confusion?

    To add to that... The 50mm AF-S will autofocus. The AF-D won't .

    Not true
    AF lenses will not auto focus on the D5100. They must be used on a camera that has the motor in the body. The d5100 does not. If you want to have a lens auto focus you must have the AF-s version on the D5100

    Not true.
    I am pretty sure that AF-s and AF-I lenses will AF on entry level Nikons... and that's it.

    It's okay, Nikon's terminology is ridiculous to figure out.
