35mm 1.8G or 50mm 1.8G on D5100


I'm going to be buying a new lens for my D5100. I already have the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm. I'm looking for a great, versatile prime lense and have narrowed it down to the 35mm and the 50mm 1.8G.

I want the lense for portraits and street photography. I'm looking for that "always in my bag, never leave the house without it, always bring it on vacation because it's light, fast and versatile" type of lense.

Which one do you use and do you love it?

If you had the option would you trade it for the other lense?

Why do you think your 35mm 1.8G is better for you than the 50mm 1.8G?


Why do you think your 50mm 1.8G is better for you than the 35mm 1.8G?

Notice I said "better for you." I know they are both great lenses in their own respects.
