Summary: I wanted a light,fast, moderately wide angle lens to use as a prime lens for my Nikon F100. The zoom and tele lenses I have for this camera are somewhat heavy, so the lighter weight was welcome. The angle of view is somewhat wider than that of a 50mm so it was perfect for travel photographs in cramped locations.
Summary: I have always wanted to upgrade from my Fujifilm but never really knew what to go for. I have looked up many reviews and websites all over the internet and came to the conclusion that I had to have a Nikon and that the lens I needed was the 35 mm F/2.0 as I wanted to take great pictures with blurry backgrounds. No disappointment here and even though it's not an easy task for a beginner like me to get what aperture or light to set my camera on, I'm still very pleased.
