    I got one last week. Great lens for the price. I've been shooting all my photos this week with it.

    I can't decide if 35 or 50mm would be better.

    I could not decide either so I bought both. I use them both and since they were not that much money it was no big deal.

    Well, 200 is kind of a lot extra when I am already buying new equipment. Which do you prefer after having them? Can you give some examples of situations where one is better than the other?

    If you have a crop body a 35mm is infinitely more useful than a 50mm unless you pretty much only do head shots or regularly have a lot of room to back up. I was in the same scenario and ended up going with the 35mm. Take your kit lens and really study each focal length and imagine it doesn't zoom. Try taking pictures with those limitations and see if it impairs your ability to get the shots you normally take.

    Just looking through your pics and seeing what focal length you use isnt the most accurate method imo, as there are times when you could have zoomed with your feet, but just didn't b/c you had zoom ability. So maybe you do have the flexibility of a certain focal length, but just dont know it looking through your old pics.

    FWIW...

    Got mine today to go along with my Nikon 18-200. Really nice pictures and worth the $199.00.
