Re: 35mm or 50mm 1.8 for D5000

Why not decide for yourself after some experimentation? You will have, I guess, a kit lens that is a zoom and covers both focal lengths. So use it as if it were the primes - go around & shoot lots of stuff at 50mm and recompose each shot at 35mm. Now you can quietly compare the results and decide which you prefer for your type of photography. OK, you won't have the f/1.8 aperture but you will have the focal length - and it costs nothing except your own time.
