Re: New D5100 replacing D40... lens questions

I received my 16-85mm VR yesterday. Purchased from eBay in perfect condition at a fantastic price. Have had almost no time with it so far but initial impressions are very very positive! Can't wait to have some more time with it.

I would like to test it against the 35mm f/1.8 for indoor, night, and general low light use. The short work I did with the 35 at a bday party this weekend was impressive, very fast lens. I have so much to learn with this camera and photo in general but I was able to get some good shots over the weekend... although when I used the 35 inside there was a noticeable red push, probably my inexperience but it was there. I'll get some education going and probably buy Lightroom 3 since I seem to be making an investment here.

I've pre-ordered the 85mm f/1.8g as well, I really want something like that to use at night at Disneyland and just for some of that amazing bokeh that it seems to produce.
