Thoughts on selling my Nikkor AF-S 35 f/1.8 and buying a AF-S 50mm f/1.4?

I'd go for it. I've found that the 50mm makes a nice walkaround lens. Of course I've also heard people say otherwise, so it may be a personal taste thing.

I realized with school I won't be able to afford the Sigma 70-200 I wanted, so I figured I'd get something a little longer, and faster.

Is it sharper than the 35?

Heya fellas, I got a D90, and love it. Lately I have been using one of these along with it, great for night shots, delays, and time lapses:

Wasn't 80 bux when I bought it, but I would pay that much for it

Anyway anyone got the new Nikon D3100 yet? Looks pretty good!

Canon shooter myself, so unfortunately I can't comment on the Nikon lens.

Welcome to the club

I think someone on here has picked up a D3100 already, but I can't seem to remember who. It does look like a nice body though. I'd wish Nikon would upgrade their D3000 as well. It's a bit sad that their only counterpart to the Canon Rebel XS still uses a CCD sensor.

Sigma 50.

Panasonic Lumix ZS3... just getting around to unlocking it's potential. I won't pretend it is a DSLR, but it gets the job done very nicely for a P&S IMO

Alrighty I'm finally starting to get the hang of this T2i. Looking to buy another lens. Currently I only have the 18-55mm kit lens and the 55-250 3.5/5.6 telephoto zoom.

I'm thinking about the 50mm 1.4. Went to the local camera shop and looked at both the cheaper 1.8 and the 1.4 (1.2 is sorta out of the price range lol) and noticed that the 1.8 feels like a cheap toy compared to the 1.4. Now I'm not planning on being hard on my stuff but the difference in build quality seemed tremendous. So I'm asking....is it worth it to spend extra and grab the 1.4?

Image-quality wise, the two are very similar. The only real difference in IQ is the bokeh each produces. Since the 1.4 has more blades, the bokeh is smoother versus the pentagonal shape of the 1.8.

Functionally, the 1.4 also has an Ultrasonic Motor (USM) which is both quieter and faster than a normal AF motor. It also gave me better low-light performance compared to my old 1.8 with autofocusing. The 1.4 also has Full Time Manual (FTM), where the lens can be manually adjusted safely even when AF is on, meaning you don't have to switch back and forth between MF and AF when manually focusing.

Of course, you also noticed the build quality as well. The 1.4 is sturdier and has a nice metal mount.

Personally, I think it's worth it. The USM alone made me love the lens more compared to my old 1.8.
