    the 50/1.4 is a great choice!
    you light like a wide angle, i think 24mm on a crop body is a good one?

    if you're going to do club work, don't get a super wide angle.

    bitches complain about the barrel distortion and say "this pic makes me look fat" etc

    i got the tamron 17-50 f2.8, that sounds like a good club lens to me :o

    From what everyone says, the Tamrn 17-50 seems to be a great lens. Your first choice in the 50mm 1.4 is great though. $ for $ the best lens for the money!

    I had the Tamron 17-50F2.8

    I dunno I found it was a shape/fast lens but it never seemed to focus accurately on my D80 body and since it is a manual screw lens for focus, you would have to flip the actual A/M switch on the camera body to manually focus it... it got old. I have much better luck with my 18-200 VR than the tamron.

    Just my 2cents...

    if you are on a budget don't spend half of your money on a 50 f/1.4. get the f/1.8 and you still have 400 dollars left

    17-50, 50 f/1.8...then you need to look at getting a good telephoto in the future.

    OK final dilemma so should I get a Tamron 17-50F2.8 and a Nikon 50 f/1.8
    or Just get a Tamron 17-50F2.8 with a SB-600 Speedlight?
