I second the 35mm 1.8. I have a D3100 and got the 35mm and very expensive 16-85mm to replace the kit lens.

With it's big aperture (ie great low light ability and bokeh), the 35mm really made a big hit with me.

Whilst costing 4x more, I didn't see the benefit of the 16-85mm. Largely my fault as it is a great landscape lens, but for me, as my main subject is a young daughter who never stays still, speed and bokeh are key. The 35mm prime is perfect for me.

But if landscapes are your thing rather than moving targets or indoor low light shots, then zoom lenses will be a better option.
