    Maybe it's my skill la.

    But i find that the kit lens do better job.
    get a longer lens. that way you can stay back further and just follow him with the camera. for most of the time, unless you're trying for an artistic shot, you don't want to be moving much while making pics.

    i have a 35mm f1.8. low light and night street are gd enough for me. and it is light in weight.
    but because it is a prime lens, at 35mm sometime i have distance restriction for dinning gathering and indoor event.
    if i bring extra lens out, i will change to another lens and change back to 35mm again. this is a problem that you have to consider before buying 35mm.

    35mm is okay.
    Set the camera in Timer and bring a long bamboo stick.

    What will you say about that?
    It's a decent lens. Are you having trouble with the lens?

    3. Nikon 35mm 1.8 >>>> Sharp, Great color, most affordable amoung 3 lens, light, ... CON: Fix FL / Average - Poor Bokeh

    I prefer to have the Nikkor 18-200 f1.0 VRIII for shooting in low light/indoor event/night street/dinner gathering.
    hmm.... it doesn't exist yet.
    Next choice probably, Tamron 17-50 f2.8 VC. VC does help quite a bit in low light.

    I'm in similar situation. My daughter runs towards me whenever camera is raised.

    For ur kit lens, keep it. It's gd for use when u go outings! I bought body only n kinda regret not getting the lens. The 100+ reach is sweet when u r watching performances.

    Agreed. The 18-105 is only ard $200 more when bundled with the body and its seriously a very sharp lens.

    Its good to keep it sleeping in the dry cab and use it when you need the 105mm or use as spare when required.

    In fact, i tested it against the new 50/1.8G few days back, both same settings, 50mm, f5.6 and it appears that the 18-105 is as sharp as the 50/1.8G and it actually fares same if not better at the edges.

    This is some hell of a good kit lens imo.

    I would prefer a Tamron 17-50 VC. Additional flash would be good.
