sounds like this place is turning into an askjeeves search box. repeated asking of basic questions with no form of courtesy what so ever. hey, bloke, go fetch me a bone. get the rift?

1. Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G
2. Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G

Both will auto-focus on the Nikon D40x dSLR.

haha relaxxxx.
to quincy: hey dude, i'm a newbie here too. same as you, using a d40x.
however, i do my own researches online, check the forum threads which are related to my questions and doubts. to clarify some enquiries then i post threads to ask for opinions.
just please refrain from asking directly recommendations before you even did any researches or whatsoever.
and this is just my 1cent lol.

good luck! *peace*

i think the 35mm is good

because you have a crop factor

so 35mm will account to about 52.5mm

so it will imitate the effects of the 50mm f/1.4

depends how much of the background you want to blur...if you want them in focus then actually the kit lens is pretty much okay.
