Re: Shooting low light indoors?

I use the Nikon 35mm 1.8g for low light indoor shots and I've been really happy with it.  It's not the best for portraits because of the slight distortion, but it's a great all-around lens.  With the 5100, 35mm is the closest we have to a traditional 50mm on a full-framed camera (50mm is about the focal equivalent of our eyes).

When I'm shooting indoors with it, and I'm wanting to avoid flash, I'll turn my ISO up to around 3200, and that's generally enough.  It does create a little noise, but nothing LR can't handle.

Hope this helps.
