Two lenses without breaking a bank?

Sigma 35 f/1.4 and Nikon 85 f/1.8 OR Tamron 90 f/2.8 VC USD (which is macro AND stabilized)

Add the 50 if you like, it will be transparent for you

All the best from northern Italy, Dino.
I'm on the NIK side of photography.

Good advice too. 35MM for walk around and short tele for portraits and getting a bit closer. Can add in time.

Thing is, if you shoot a lot of closer work (people, family, street) , the 35mm or a 28mm will be very useful, and if you do a lot of portraits or indoor work that needs a bit of distance (say basketball non professional) the 85mm 1.8 will be useful.'

Depends what your subjects and style are.

Also, go to pbase and flickr and input in a search for various lenses, you can see the images people are getting with them, type of images and rendition of the lenses.

You have to like the lens.
