Well, after a year or more of pining for a DSLR, I finally pulled the trigger and bought myself a Nikon D3100! I love it so far and if I really get into the photography scene, I can upgrade to a new body down the road. Now I'm looking at lenses, and seeing as the 50mm f/1.8 is so highly regarded (and inexpensive), I think it would be a great fast lens to add to the bag. The question to any of you who use that lens with a non-autofocus body: do you miss having autofocus? I'm worried that if I don't have it, I may miss out on a shot because I'm fooling around trying to manually focus. Is the 50mm AF-S f/1.4 that much better that it justifies the $300+ price difference? Or would the 35mm f/1.8 maybe be a better way to go?
