Have 50mm - should I buy 35mm ?
Nov 12, 2009

I've seen a similar thread recently, but related to the 85mm prime. Since this one is out of my budget, I'm wondering if any of you have both lens above, and if you feel that it's worth having both of them. I really enjoy my 50mm 1.8, using it mostly to take pictures of my daughter, but often I do feel I have to "step back" a lot to get the composition that I want. I currently own the following equipment:

Nikon D90
Tamron 17-50
Nikon 55-200VR
Nikon 50mm f/1.8

Alternatively I could upgrade my Tamron to the OS version, but this will be certainly more expensive, since I don't know how much I'll get on my old 17-50 on Ebay - and it obviously would reach totally different goals, certainly one upgrade doesn't exclude the other, but my willingness to spend does

So, would you say a 35mm Prime is a worthy addition to my kit ?
