First part is I'm looking for a prime lens for some low light shooting, indoor shots, but without a flash (still using the pop-up for now). Is the Nikon 50mm f1/8 a good match for me? I have a D40x, so I know I wont get auto focus, but like I said it's simple indoor stuff so I can manage doing that my self, plus it would probably be good practice either way. Second, can anyone recommend a good monopod? I know I a tri-pod is probably more cost efficient, but a lot of sporting arenas do not allow tri-pods but mono pods are ok, and this would be it's primary function. Sub 100 on the mono pod if possible. Thanks in advance.
