So, I have both DX and FX (apc/cropped & full frame)
D300 and D700
The 50mm is FX / Full Framed
10-20 & 35 are DX / Cropped Frame

Hope I got that right. Smilie

Neither of those cameras is DX.

So you're right about the lenses, but wrong about the cameras you own.

I wonder how this older 10-20 compares to the new AF-P version. Anyone read comparisons?

There is nothing wrong with the 50mm f/1.8, it gets a bad reputation for some reason but I find it acceptably sharp on full frame D750 - I'm a pixel peeper but also I print. 90% of people who complain about unsharp lenses don't print. So they have no idea about the difference between the sharpest lenses and the middle of the pack - at CORRECT viewing distances you'll never notice. Even HUGE prints aren't viewed close up (except by weirdos who have no artistic skill).

Get a good lens for a low price.
Go shoot.
Make prints.
Be happy!

Is there an old version without AF-P? The version linked has AF-P (I just forgot to include it in the title).

Had to add two more thoughts:

I have shot thousands of pics on the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 DX lens (the one listed above) - great lens, get that for DX skip the 50mm on DX

I also own both 50mm 1.8D and 1.8G. The 1.8G is the better lens (the one listed above). But the focal length isn't great on DX, it's not portrait friendly unless you like enlarged noses on closer shots. For that my go-to was the 85mm 1.8 for DX. The 50mm 1.8 is great for general shooting on FX though.

I'm just getting into photography. Would it matter if this lense is VR or not for general photography?

Vibration reduction helps in low light, low stability situations. If the price difference is not that much get vr. If it is a long lenses get vr. Shooting kids, sports get vr. Shooting landscapes from a tripod? No need for vr. General photography, it can help you don't know until you are taking the photo.

I bought the 50/1.8.
My fave lens, that I later sold, was an 85/1.4 Nikkor.

I haven't used my Nikon D700 in 2 years. I don't know where to sell it.

VR won't help you with fast moving subjects -- so for shooting kids and sports, you really want a fast lens.
