Alright well thanks a lot! Can anyone tell me best prime for people? The Minolta 50mm f 1.7 look tempting, and the beercan does too? If I where to have the 18-55 kit, and the two previously listed would I be good to go as an hobbyist?

For prime, my top recommendation would be DT 35/1.8. For 50mm, choices are ample: 1.4, 1.7 and DT50/1.8. And for tighter portraits: 85/2.8 (you could also consider Sigma 70/2.8 or Tamron 90/2.8 or Minolta 100/2.8 macro lenses to double ad tight portrait lenses).
