I'm getting ready to purchase a D5000 but I'm new to photography and need some help choosing a lens.
I'm mostly going to be photographing people, not just portraits but candid shots at parties, etc. (Indoors & out). I'm also interested in shooting architecture and "small" landscapes but not so much big sweeping views.
I can only afford either the 18-55mm kit lens or the 35mm f/1.8G AF-S. Which would you guys recommend? The kit lens is making me nervous because I can't afford a flash unit right now and I'm worried about low light situations indoors at parties, restaurants, etc. But will the 35mm lens work alright for landscapes?
Thanks for your help!
