    need is a word of context. to me the 35 and 50mm are 2 different lens' with different renditions and different purposes. on DX i would not be able to lie with one or the other, much the same as on FX i cant do without my 50 and 85. i see them as totally different.

    If I had the money I would purchase both. To be honest although the 35mm will suit my indoor shooting I know 50mm will offer more reach, especially when photographing my dogs outside. With my kit lens I am more often than not at 18mm or 55mm. I suppose it begs the question why I chose the 35mm All in all 35mm 1.8 at the price I paid will re-ignite my shooting as I didnt really pick up the camera in 2010. It will also be my first experience with a prime lens

    I want the 35mm and I already own the 50mm f/1.8. Like everyone else, it's just too tight sometimes.

    My first few shots with the 35mm 1.8

    Here are a few shots taken with my new 35mm 1.8 on my D40. Overall Im pretty happy as I have not picked up the camera in a long time. It may be due to the fact the dogs move so much and I was shooting alot at 2.8 but the focus was a little hit and miss. Just could not get the eyes real sharp at times, or the nose would be razor sharp and the eyes hazy. Even at 1.8 and iso 800 the little buggers were moving around so much it was hard getting still poses.
