    i think with all the reviews and advice from all of you awesome peeps, i have decided to get the 35mm 1.8g..
    u already got your answer, if u like to shoot with more space. then get 35mm obviously as 50mm will only gets tighter.

    Ya mean you wanna buy both

    Agreed.. I first tested the focal length at my kit lens at 50mm and didnt like it. Subject became too close and i needed space to get the shot i want. But with 35mm, it covers more area and i dont need to back up so much. Plus the sharpness in dim settings is uber and i love the bokeh.. And its such a fast lens. A total value of money for a first prime.

    Im practically clueless and i dont wanna get the wrong thing. I did try to read up on the different lenses but all seems good and really not helping in the decision making.

    Would really appreciate some advice. Thanks!
    In my opinion, 50mm at DX is 75mm, which is better for human shooting. I use 50mm 1.4d with D300s (which is also DX) and feel that the background is often left with only color. While 35mm at DX is easier to handle, as when I try 35mm 1.8g I feel it can also be used on structure shooting sometimes.
    In all, I think 35mm maybe better as it is more flexible as your first prime lens.
