I have a Nikon D700
- Nikon 28-300mm lens
- Nikon 16-35 mm
- Samyang 14 mm lens
I have an opportunity to purchase a Nikon 50mm f1.8 AFD lens. How useful would this lens be in combination with the above lenses?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

My advice: If you are a real pro, do NOT buy this. Buy THIS - it seems that it has by far the best/price performance ratio in the industry. But if you don't have the money, buy your Nikon. It is worth it.
Everyone needs a cheap 50mm. With f1.8 vs say your 28-300's f3.5(at it's widest aperture), you have more than a stop of light-gathering ability.
50mm gives you super powers.
