Re: Lens Recommendation

So, it turns out that the dance studio is 30' x 100'. I only have the 35/1.8 right now. Almost everyone says that the 50mm is a must have lens(not sure if they are referring to full frame)and others say that the 85mm is better for portraits on crop sensor camera. I guess that I want to buy only one right now for my D5100. For the time being I think that I will stay away from zoom options(not sure why though). My fear is that I will have to stand too far away with the 50mm to avoid facial distortion, forcing me to crop in post.

This is an example, taken off the web, of what I will be photographing. I would like to shoot closer in to get facial the expressions and of course at a better angle.
