    Will check out John 3:16 later.
    I had to wait for my 35/1.8 from SLR revolution, but the price was the best of the shops that I looked at, by a fair bit too... definitely cheaper than what most people are selling theirs for on the personal classifieds!

    Just wanted to remind you again that prime lenses aren't for everyone, because of the fixed focal length. Some people find it annoying that there's no zoom.
    Exploring! :)

    Ha.

    Thanks. So far so good. The lens is great. Fast, but my skill is not there yet, so photos are not as sharp yet.
    Still experimenting.

    I have tried both the 105mmDC and 85mm f1.4 on my older D80 before. lovely, just put abit more distance i betw. wider angle primes will give u abit more space to work with

    1 advice, although you can use the largest aperture setting, try not to if you intend to achieve pin sharp images. Trying using atleast 2 stop smaller than the largest aperture.

    I love my 50mm f/1.8. It's very sharp, very fast focusing speed.

    I brought it last month from Hong Kong (S$140).

    should get one and try out... U will love prime lenses.

    Which of the following 'prime' would you experienced folks recommend for someone getting a second prime? I'm currently using a 50/1.4 but am feeling restricted by it:

    30mm vs 50mm vs 85mm

    Thanks and happy CNY!
