    It would be a great addition to your camera. Provided, of course, it's not beat up, or the blades are stuck, or it's full of fungus......

    I would think that $44 would be a fair price for a clean functioning piece.

    Do you know the person selling it to you? Are you able to try it on your camera before you buy?

    no i dont know the person selling it to me, i found it online. I hate buying things online for the reason that sometimes you cant trust people..im considering just buying the lens through a well known online retailer.

    I highly recommend the 50 1.7 lens. My copy has a bit of fungus, but that never bothered me. It still is super sharp. I bought it for about 20$, fungus included :D. The 44$ for a clean one sounds like a good deal.
