David, I'm so glad you asked this question. I've been pondering the same thing for my D5100, only I'm considering the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8g AF-S.

Be careful you don't waste your money. The 50/F1.8 is a very sharp lens for not a big price but on a DX body that focal length is both too long (for 'social gatherings') and too short for other things. I do have one but it does not see a lot of use.

You have a point there, but it's not that straightforward: I find 50-60mm on DX very good for both events and landscape. Of course anybody with a 18-55 can make up their own mind!
