Agreed.. Saw that on youtube. Anyways im on my way to funan to get the 35mm 1.8. Omg i cant wait lol.Originally Posted by troubleshooter
If you shoot portraits a lot you will also want to get the 50mm (it's about $150+ new) or the 85mm f1.8G ($800-$1k) if you got the spare cash. Awesome bokeh without having to get so close to your subject.

That's the AF 50mm f/1.8D right? Unfortunately, I don't think highly of the image quality it produces. Going for the AF-S 50mm f/1.8G is so much better.Originally Posted by pbear1973
I don't think the Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.8G is that expensive. Should be less than S$700. Or am I mistaken?Originally Posted by pbear1973
BTW I tend to use more of the 50mm. No particular reason other than personal preference. I keep the 35 around still as it's handy to have.
I have just bought the 35mm. Super delicious bokeh-ness. Paid $327 at sslr. Awesome. Didnt need to back up more compared to 50mm.
$280 u top up about 40 bucks you can buy 1st hand )Originally Posted by phoeniix
Ah. Yes. The S$590 range eh. Nice.Originally Posted by daredevil123
Hmm ok. I got the price range off eBay in the first week it came out. Guess its fallen quite a lot.Originally Posted by daredevil123
I think it's quite nice actually, but yes for outdoor shots. It lets you get bokeh without getting too close to your subject, which in turn lets you flatten the background. The 35mm will give you bokeh in a portrait but the background might look "too deep".Originally Posted by rain5533
