If you have read any of my other threads I have a D5000 and the 18-200 VR and 18-55 lenses. I have been thinking about getting the 35 f1.8 lens, but then I keep wondering how much I will use it. I looked through my shots and it seemed like more were at either 18-25mm or 55+ mm. Would it be a decent portrait/landscape lens or is it too awkward of a focal length for either of those (not wide enough for landscapes and too long to get a whole person or group of people)?
Other opinions for a sharp lens that could be used for landscapes and or portraits (or do I need 2 lenses for this purpose?). I would consider another brand lens other then Nikon if there are any options that will autofocus with the D5000.
