Quoting wyatt.earp.:" :) i got my 35mm on ebay (refurbished) for $140. 35mm f/1.8g. and my 50mm 1.8g from b&h photo for $200 :)"


That's practically what both prices are on b&h. But like you said to me, you use the 35mm more. And since I'm not doing it to get paid, because where would I have time to do that and learn photoshop and light room? I'll probably take your advice and get the 35mm first.

Quoting wyatt.earp.:" oh, and i know ive already liked most of these pics on FB, but i love your gorgeous kiddos and cant wait to meet them soon!"


I'm a horrible post whore on FB with these. And I can't wait to see your little monkeys too!



It's like only 2 weeks away! eek! I'm serious though. I'll make sure to bring the camera too, and maybe you can show me somethings on it I haven't yet seen.

Quoting TheCoopersKnitWitch:" See that's my thoughts, if I'm going to do it to make money, I could invest, but I'm not. So that's why I'm thinking just the 35mm."


Same here. I really went back and forth on the 50 or 35. I'm glad I went with the 35. The 50 would be way to tight in my house and I have a pretty big house with large rooms.

i would. im telling you, i have not once used my 50mm inside. not enough room, and since you will need to take pictures of your products i would definitely go with the 35mm. it's very cheap, sharp and pretty versatile on our crop sensors!

And I flip through too. I'll put the lens that's on there now at 35mm and 50mm, and I really am liking the 35mm.



But Nat wants to do ballet. So ballet first, then a lens I guess.
