I had both this and the older 50 f1.8 D. The newer AF-S is improved when shot at wide aperture (f/1.8 - f/3.5) and is dead quiet but on my F5 it had the tendency to "double check" for focus in low light conditions. Never had this problem with the older "D" version. This, together with the fact that it is a bulkier lens made me sell it and kept the older "D". Never missed it, never looked back.
