Re: Additional lens

|I'm going to agree with the user MirashootsNikon. You will be happy with any of those lenses. But I would get hte 35mm first. The reason is back in the day of manual focus film cameras the kit lens was usually a 50mm f/1.8 which equated to a 46 degree field of view on a full frame camera. The 35mm f/1.8G features the same 46 degree field of view which makes it surprisingly versitile. It being a prime, it is very light and compact. No zoom but you have a natural zoom being your legs that works in most circumstances.

I honestly don't know which one I would prefer. I have never had a camera where I needed different lenses. For now I guess which ever one might be more user friendly? Then when I get better and get adjusted to my camera I can up my price point more. There is another reply to my post that lists good options as well. I'll just go up to my local camera store and take a few shots before I buy one. Thanks!
