35MM Lens Question
Mar 3, 2012

If I have a Sony A55 w/ an 18-200MM f/3.5 - 6.3 lens is there any reason/advantage to getting the 35MM f/1.8 lens?

This is my first DSLR so I'm a newbie but I see so many people comment on how much better the 35MM f/1.8 is and the fact that is smaller than the kit or 18-200 so curious if that would be a good second lense or if as a newbie I would not really "see" the advantage & would be better off w/ something else or simply sticking w/ the one I have.

Thanks!
