    Non-D...made in Japan.

    Being offered by a guy at FM who has been registered since 2003 and has 77 posts. Says it's cosmetically a 9 out of 10 with both lens caps..minor dust but doesn't have an effect on the image.

    He's supposed to be sending some pictures..says he has a couple and will sell me one for $50 when I was expecting all the offers to be in the $80-100 range.

    You may have already done this, but I'm posting my thought on your problem as a reminder anyways.

    When I was shopping around for a 50mm for my Canon I noticed that many of the deals were for much older models of the 50mm. These would not fit my Canon Rebel XT, so confirm the mount will fit your particular needs and that the auto focus is compatiable, etc...
