    Just playing around with this new puppy on the D7000. So far I love it. I was between this and the 35mm, but so far have no regrets. Will probably get a 18 or 24mm down the road, just because my couple of wide range zooms cover anything in between and after looking at most of my photos, I am either around 18mm or zoomed in on something so the 50mm really filled more of a niche for me!

    I like tele lengths the most! 85.105.112.127.144.165.180.200.220.240.265.300mm. 50mm primes are almost all quite decent however!

    At the moment my camera has a 32mm lens attached. More often, it has a 14mm.

    Please tell me you have a few zoom lenses because I would be jealous if you had a random assortment of tele primes :lol:

    The 50 1.8 is my workhorse lens. It's on my camera 80% of the time. 85mm is on 15% and the 35mm the other 5%.

    Nice. Are you shooting full frame or crop sensor? I like my 50 1.8 except for large outdoor areas. Other than that I am amazed how versatile the 50mm is. Even if I lack a little range I can usually crop in enough without being destructive.

    Sorry I'm just replying to this now. I use it on a crop sensor.

    Lately it's been the 20mm. But I leave my 70-200 on it quite a bit at home because of the random wildlife that find its way onto my property and random low flying aircrafts lol.

    But I really want to get back into shooting with a 35mm again, VERY fond of that focal length.

    50mm is excellent as well, but it's just 50mm, everyone has it. I'd probably rather shoot 85mm at that point or even 105mm macro.
