After some saving, we purchased the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G on Labor Day. It instantly became my favorite lens. It's amazing for low-lighting situations. I've really enjoyed shooting indoors - which is good, considering all the rain that's keeping us inside. It's an ideal lens for full-body portraits too - especially if you like minimal distortion and nice, blurry backgrounds. The last three posts were shot with this lens exclusively, and I especially like how the last one turned out. Of course, I can't get as close as I could when using the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED, which came with our camera. I haven't missed that much, though.
Do you have a favorite lens? Or do you enjoy shooting with a simpler point-and-shoot camera? (I did for years)! My mom takes amazing photos on her phone - I don't know how she does it!
