    Bro,

    The kit lens is good enough to use as a starter like myself ...
    But i just bought a 35mm f1.4G ... so far been loving it.

    It is a very sharp and very quick lens. Not very expensive ...

    $330, then I assume you bought the AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 DX
    It's not the 'ordinary type', just that it doesn't have the fancier Nano coating and the faster max aperture of f/1.4 and is also only covering the DX image circle

    maybe on some rare occasions, but I think generally it is still a better deal at the usual camera shops. Some even give away more freebies during the electronics shows, whilst still charging street prices.

    It is certainly not lousy. The 35 f/1.8 and the 50 f/1.8 are easily the best value for money when it comes to IQ for the price.

    In the hands of noobs like me there is absolutely no difference between the IQ of the f/1.4 and f/1.8 lens once they are stepped down below ~f/2.2.

    No la... it's not a lousy lens at all. If you find it lousy, you can always give it to me!
    I would say it's like comparing a BMW 5 series with a Maybach (if you know cars). Just because the 5-series is much cheaper, doesn't mean it's lousy
    The 35/1.8 is a DX lens, which is designed primarily for cameras with APS-C sensors. Of the current Nikon range, that is the D3100, D5000, D90 (just discontinued, I heard), D7000, D300s.
