Re: Best prime to start out with'

If you are planning on staying with a DX sensor, I can tell you a 50mm is very good for portrait but just awkward for almost anything else. I'm suspecting it could be great with FX as a walk around but certainly not on DX IMO.

I would look at a 28 for DX fearing the 35 would be too close. But I haven't tried it. If you can swing it I like the freedom of a good zoom in your choice of focal lengths and then get a fast prime to augment low light situations.
