I think btw the 35, 50, and 85, there is not enuf gap to make a huge difference. I would do a 35mm and an 85mm, and spend the rest on something else. Or maybe just spend $90 on the 50mm 1.8. It's a plastic toy and slow to focus but gives quite good IQ. Or as has been suggested step up the tele side to either the 100 2.8 macro or the 135mm f/2.0
