Nikon mount.

I have fast short range lens's, fast longer range len's, but nothing in between that's fast. Don't need or want current production since the prices are high, so looking for a mid range lens that is a few years old, but still gets the job done. Nikon, Tamron, Sigma.......all are fine to me.

What is the diamond in the ruff lens I should be looking for?

The nifty fifty.......50 f/1.8G

Fast, sharp as heck, and cheap.

Everybody should have one.

I shd be moar specific. Looking for variable aperture........something like 18-140mm.

Or is it called variable zoom? Mid distance zoom?

What is your budget and need for it to fill, other than midrange zoom?

Trying to keep it under $400. Thinking family reunions. Parades. Something where i have just a smidge of reach, but not wanting to lug around the 70-200 G2.

DX for FX?

I had (still have, actually) the 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 for a few years as my midrange zoom; it's pretty sharp and pretty cheap ($250 used/refurbed) but it's DX only.

Are you using full frame or DX?

Thanks. As much as I want the D500, gonna wait I guess until it comes down in price a bit more. I may regret this decision.

Gonna go track that lens down. Thank u.
