    The 1.8 is $200. The F/2 is $360.

    Any reason to spend $160 more?

    f/2 can cover an FX sensor. If you are staying DX the 1.8 is superior.

    sweeeeeet. it sounds like for $200 that prime is pretty damn sharp.

    50mm on my D90 is too damn tight. using it inside is very hard

    I'll sell you my 35mm f/2.0 for $ 300 shipped.

    The 17-55 f/2.8 never leaves my camera anymore :(

    yeah i see it's out of stock, but other places have it. i just need to make sure they are the USA ones. i don't mind paying $10-$20 more.

    Call up local shops and get on their lists. I was lucky for find one at a legit shop in St. Thomas. As soon as I got back from the cruise, the local shop called me with the 35 in stock.
