I'm guessing you dont have the auto focus motor built in your camera so the 50mm 1.8g is your only choice for autofocus.

I'm also guessing you have a dx camera. In that case I'd recommend the 35mm 1.8g dx for an all around lens. The 50mm will be more of a portrait lens on dx. 35mm 1.8g dx is about the same price as 50mm 1.8g and IMHO more useful than 50mm on dx.

$80 is a solid price if you have the built in motor ..$45 savings (last time I checked) over the price of a new lens. They're selling used on feebay for almost that much. It's also a great cheap macro lens if you get the parts and mount it backwards..in which case the autofocus wont be used anyways.

Picked one up. Killer deal for a solid lens. I've had a few Nikon Refurbs in the past and always a good experience. Just make sure its compatible with your camera body

Thanks much for your detailed response. You're correct, I've 3400.

I was considering 35mm 1.8G lens but read a few times that 50mm 1.8G has ​better bokeh and 50mm on dx gives a much better result than much more expensive lenses. Now I'm on fence again, so it's 35mm?

Depends on your use really...35mm on dx is like a 50mm on FX. If your aim is portraits on dx then 50mm, because it will be like a 75mm FX. Most people recommend 85mm for FX portraits . If you want an all around lens that will also be wider for scenery I recommend the 35mm. I started with the 50mm on DX...then got the 35mm and was in love. Then I got addicted to ultrawides...the Tokina 11-16mm and 8mm lenses are fun.

The 35mm is an easy lens to recommend as an all around lens if you only carry one on dx.

If you have a zoom lens now look at the majority of your saved pics. Check the file info to see which lens is closest.

Relatively speaking they're both cheap lenses.

For those that are curious, as I was, here is a good article on the difference between this lens and the one that comes packaged with your DSLR.

Yes the 35mm would be the better choice on a dx. Trust me the 50mm would be nice for portraits but would be very tight and you won't have AF on this one. If you really want a 50mm then get the g version. That has a motor built into the lens.

Semi-pro here. I concur. 35mm for everyday lens. 50mm for portraits. On DX crop sensor. Get both, best deal around.
