    love my 50/1.8. looking at the 35/2 and 28/2.8

    and thoughts? I'm afraid 35 won't be wide enough for what I'm looking for

    p.s. I love primes...I know they're less flexible, but I heart them dearly and like the challenge they present

    get the new 35mm 1.8.

    early reviews say it's stoopid sharp, it's af-s, so it's quick, and the 35mm on the crop body is :drool:

    The sigma 30mm 1.4 is a fantastic lens if you have a crop sensor camera, it takes wonderful pictures and is fast. I own a Canon, but I know they have a Nikon version.

    get the 35/1.8

    the sigma 30/1.4 is rad if you get a good copy. I know about 6 people with one, and ONE of those people has a lens that gives them consistent good results. Mine is shit beyond about 2m
