50mm 1.8G vs 35mm 1.8G
Jun 20, 2012

This has probaly been asked on here before but I didn't see it so I'm going to ask.

I just bought a D5100 with the 18-55mm lens and now I'm looking to expand my lens'. I want a nice prime lens for portraits but also quick and easy street photography.

I know the 35mm will be better for street and the 50mm will be better for portraits, but of the two which is the most versatile?

Does anyone own both? Which do you use more and why?

Thanks for the help.

Nikon D5100
