Does anyone have an opinion on whether I should go with a 'D' or non 'D' 85mm 1.8 Nikon lense. I was looking at some used ones and there is a significant price difference between the two. I am shooting with a D70.

Thanks,

Tim de Dios

Check out Photodo for their take on it based on the MTF curves. If you use the older non D lens, the latest SB800/600 flash may not give you correct exposures for certain programs.

It will work better with the equipment you have -- and the D70 isn't the last body you'll ever buy....

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I guess I'll be staying with the 85mm 1.8d.
