    Where is there too much emphasis on grey card? I would say it, or something equivalent is more required in the digital era as it is now much easier to use.

    Digital cameras comes with their own metering system and they do have their own algorithm to figure out the "right" exposure. Since we have the luxury of reviewing photos right after taking photos, we can dial up/down exposure and re-shoot if we need. So I think we can work without 18% grey card.

    Except that they don't. DSLR's TTL metering is based on the middle grey card. And reviewing photos from a camera screen which can be set to different levels of brightness, and who's brightness is perceived differently by the human eye in different levels of ambient light, is useless unless you're really experienced and have first practised with a grey card, and are used to interpreting the histogram.

    I don't know how many use grey card in their everyday work. And I don't see how practical it is to use a grey card on every work.

    We seem to be shifting goalposts a lot here. It isn't practical to use a DSLR, or a L lens, or a flash gun, or a soft box, yet it is what you do if you want quality. As for how many use a grey card, I suspect that number is greater than you think. I know of at least one internet group where this is a highly recommended method, and there are photographers who go beyond grey card and even use a full blown colour target for every shoot. The fact that many photographers don't use it doesn't prove anything. Most photographers I've met, both online and in-person, don't know how metering works. They only know to brag about how they always use manual mode without a clue about what they are doing.

    And even amongst those who don't use a grey card, there are many who use a light meter. And a large number of them don't know that the light meter has to be calibrated to each body + lens combination using (what a surprise) a grey card or equivalent.

    I have been in an assumption that with digital cameras, need of grey card/light meter is pretty much gone. One way or other, photographers learned to get correct exposure without grey card/light meter.

    Hello Friends,

    I'm looking for used 50mm lens for my Nikon D3200. AF or AF D is fine for me as I do manual focusing.

    Used Nikon AF 50mm f/1.8 (Not D) is listed in ebay India for 3.2k which is pretty decent price I think but it has issues with auto focusing (Not a problem in D3200) and slight fungus.

    The price for the same was 3.8k a week ago and now the seller has reduced to 3.2k.
    Do you guys think its worth to buy this lens or should I look for better piece?
    Do you know where can I find used 50mm lens? I have been checking jjmehta for long but there are only f/1.4.

    50mm lens is tempting for me, even though I have 35mm lens but I don't like to spend much for it.

    Thanks...
    Best Regards

    3.2k for a non D lens and in this condition, isn't pricey?

    I think its pricy...a slightly damaged lens with fungus should attract lesser money....for 3.2 you should get AFD easily. I have my non D 50mm. I bought it for 2.5k 5 yrs back.

    Hmm, I always thought lenses have more value then other stuffs but you guys are right, 3.2k is looks pricey. I will send message to seller and ask if he is willing to reduce.

    Meanwhile if you find such lens anywhere else, please let me know.

    Thanks...
