I bought the 35mm f/1.8. I find even that too close for most shots...I guess it helps since you have a full frame. I debated between the 35 and 50mm, glad I at least went 35, although now I just want like 10-18mm.

When she's not stalking her prey or bullying our 135 lb. yella lab, she's snorting xanax and drinking Maker's:

Boost kitty looks better on that side of the engine bay.

And would look even better with neon green paws. It's my favorite color.

Not a full frame, just a DX.I started to do the 35mm, but apparently the 50mm offers better bokeh, and I'll be using mine more for portraits and tight shots. I'm quite sure I will upgrade to the 1.4 though, I need the extra little performance it offers. I want the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 something terrible. One of the most crisp and distortion free wide lenses available. It's a bit expensive though, at $600 it's still cheaper than anything Nikon offers, and it performs as well or better.

Why do I find this picture to be so entertaining? I really want a 48"x36" version of this to hang up in my garage.

Dunno, I've always loved that one too. One of those that you can't describe with words.
