Re: Your favorite street prime.

what is your budget?  what do you consider cheap?
I like using the 24-35 range for street photography.  50mm seems a bit too narrow, at least for the streets I usually walk.

check out the Nikkor 28 f/1.8 if you want a relatively cheap option.  the Nikkor 24 f/1.4 and 35 f/1.4  are also good candidates, although their prices are more prohibitive.

an alternative is the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 that's slowly entering the retail channels.  much cheaper than the Nikkor, but supposedly has great performance.  thinking of picking one up myself once I find it in stock somewhere.
