    Yes I totally agree with that and I know you can rent the lens to try out before deciding.

    This is not an expensive lens, so renting is not a good option, I think. It will make selection easier if we know which is the better choice than the kit lens AFS 18-105 mm.

    get to know ppl by joining outings and then you can try

    but since you already have the 18-105mm you can decide if you prefer the 35mm or 50mm focal length
    at least you have moved one step

    For general use will the f 1.4 and f 1.8 make any significant difference?

    Thank you
    i suppose you are using a crop body?... go for the 35 1.8 then... I feel 50 on FF is abit tight for general shooting especially indoor so 50 on a crop body is out of the qn for me if that's your intended purpose for this lens... but and again its down to individual and ur shooting style and preference...
    i used the 35 1.8 b4 both on crop and ya FF bodies... I must say its hell a good lens...

    Hey thank you. That is a very helpful info. Am I right to say it will allow more flexibility in a confined space to be able to cover a wider angle?

    However, I did read somewhere the 35 mm does cause some distortion. Or I got it wrong?
