It is quite long since Nikon has launched 50mm f/1.8 D which replaced the 50mm f/1.8 AF (non D). It sells for only about Rs. 6000 and is super sharp. If you compare to other expensive lenses from Nikon it is as sharp as others with price advantage.

Offering natural image rendering and exceptional sharpness, the AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D is a versatile, affordable prime lens. Extremely compact and lightweight, it weighs approximately 155g, making it a convenient carry-around lens for nearly any shooting opportunity. Its aperture control ring enables smooth manual adjustments during Live View shooting, making it a great video partner, too.
This could be the best priced option for your D5300, D3, D3400 or even new D850, much better than any zoom, to get you the fast autofocus, great low light exposure and the sharpness for which you bought expensive Nikon DSLR in the first place.
Since it is a traditional AF lens (not gelded as a G), it is compatible with every Nikon camera either of the digital, film, auto or manual focus. It works especially well on the Nikon D3/D300 as it’s a full-coverage FX lens, so it works great on FX digital, DXdigital and film.
