    hope this isnt one of those questions that annoys everyone , any way im looking for a low light lens for clubs and natural low light situations , im broke so im very stuck on the 1.8 but i know the a.f wont work on the d60 , but i want to ask if anyone that has this combination ( d60 +1.8 ) have any problems with manual focus and so on . or should i stick with saving for a 1.4

    any other alturnatives ??

    thank you in advance

    Is the 35 f/1.8 too wide for you?

    Have you got a picture or a link to one that shows what type of shot you are after? 50mm might be too long or too short.

    50mm f/1.8 $135
    50mm f/1.4 $470

    35mm f/1.8 $200 (DX)
    35mm f/2 $360

    Sigma 30mmf/1.4 $440 (DX)

    85mm f/1.8 $440
    85mm f/1.4 $1240

    On my sig I have my myspave with some shots but I really like the fact that it's a prime so you get some wideneds but honestly I'm fairly new when it comes to this but have some background on lenses I mainly know what I read online


    But I want natural light at night LOL as I said before
    Also what do you mean it could be too short or too long ? I know with the 50mm since it's a prime I have slot of footwork due
