    35mm on D7k body = 50mm in actual
    50mm on D7k body = 75mm in actual
    x1.5 factor.

    That might be one of the reason depending what you're trying to shoot.

    BBB is "Buy Buy Buy". Very lethal virus.

    35 or 50mm very much depends on ur usage, Indoors I'll recco 35 or 30 or even 24 & 20(sigma).

    Outdoor u can take 35,50,85 all ok.. Just distance only.

    [EDIT] Added in 30mm too. Forgot about it

    For me, I'm comfortable with my Sigma 30 mm f1.4 EX.

    Really give me the space/distance to shoot streets. And also, good for night street shoots.
    Jus my 2cents.

    For prime, f stop of 1.4 is really useful... I had a lot of space for ISO and shutter speed when stopping down on my 50mm f1.4

    yup! thats the reason.
    before deciding to buy the D7000, i actually borrowed a friend's canon 450D with the 50mm to try for a couple of weeks.
    I feel the 50mm focal length was abit too restricting for indoor shots....as highlighted by one of the bros here.

    for the sigma 50mm f1.4....haha, abit off my budget

    Hi peeps...im still thinking whether to purchase D7000 with kit or its body only and get a better lens? what lens should i get for a start if i purchase the body only? Any recommendation? Mostly is for taking portrait and outdoor...not much indoor though...

    Hi incomplet,

    I was in the same boat with you.
    But in the end, i decided to get the D7000 body-only with the tamron 17-50 f2.8 and 35mm f1.8.
    You can read from the start of this thread on how i eventually decided on this

    I think ... D7000 body-only with the tamron 17-50 f2.8 and 35mm f1.8 is a superd combination !

    Very good taste ! *thumbs up*

    i'm not a pro myself. But i believe the choice of lens should be determined by what do you intend to shoot and the budget you have.
    For prices, perhaps you would like to check out the Price Guide section...thats where I get most of my info.

    For the choice of tamron 17-50mm f2.8, it was recommended by one of the seniors here and I did a little research myself.

    The first 2 are for cropped bodies (or DX body, like D7000). The second is an updated version of the first with vibration control, similar to nikon's VR. The 3rd is a lens for full frame camera (or FX body, like D700), the lens, however, is usable on DX bodies, which gives a similar zoom range as the first 2 lens when mounted on FX bodies. Note that when mounting the first 2 lens on FX bodies, you either get serious vignette or switch to DX mode which takes pictures that contains much lesser megapixel.

    If you are just starting out using a DSLR, stick to the kit lens. It will lead u to know what u want.

    Just get the D7000 with the kit lens. Even if you decide to sell the 18-105 kit lens later, you will not lose much, since it will sell around for the difference in prince between the kit and body only price.

    Shoot with the kit lens enough to learn and understand what lenses you really need.
