    Yeah, for general use I'd definitely go with the 35mm over the 50mm, since it's just so much more useful. However, the OP seemed to be interested in portrait photography, and that's where the 35mm...

    35mm and 50mm are vastly different focal lengths when applied to portrait photography. But I don't need to try and explain that - just set your kit lens to those focal lengths and take some shots....

    It's a really nice shot, it just highlights the importance of a large-aperture lens in adding the out-of-focus background that makes your subject stand out and is the hallmark of portrait...

    Check your photos, see what sort of focal length you tend to use most. The 35mm sounds a little too wide for the action I'm seeing in your examples, but it depends on how close you are to the action....

    Wow, it's been a long time since I've really handled the camera. Went out after church the other day to kill some time, ended up with a few alright shots.

    Lack of an inexpensive auto-focusing 50mm lens for portraits and such kind of puts the D60 and its littermates in a bit of a bind. There is a low-light, large aperture option now in the 35mm f/1.8,...

    I think lenses are already expensive enough without buying a sensor along with them. Color me confused and unimpressed.

    Photo.net is a semi-community-oriented site... problem is, the photos there will mostly make you want to sell your camera, erase your identity, and then curl up into a fetal ball and wail.

    Good choice! You should look into more lenses, also, for the 18-55mm won't satisfy your lust for glass for long (trust me). The 55-200mm VR, 35mm f/1.8, 18-105mm VR and 70-300mm VR are some good...

    Some of those shots are not sharp; your shutter speed is just a little bit too low for the lighting combined with variables like hand shake. Bump your ISO a little bit and don't shoot wide open...

    I too recommend the f/1.4G model. And if your friend is looking to use the lens as a "standard" lens, rather than a portrait lens, I'd definitely say get a 35mm. My 50mm is frustrating on an APS-C...
